He said shouting in anger. ”at least Ill be better with my game and when Im done, theyll go down to number zero, they won even know what hit them ha— ”, he was interrupted by the knock on the door.

”Come in ” he said

A tall blonde woman dressed in a red gown comes in looking distressed.

”is everything all right sir, I heard your voice from my front desk ” said Sally.

”Everything is fine, just go back to work ”, he said, with a smile on his face.

”Is there anything youd like me to do ”

”No nothing ”

”Alright sir, Ill just head back to what I was doing ”.

”Better, when I need your attention, Ill call you and then I almost forgot, tell robin to meet me at my office before 5:30 ”

”Alright sir, Ill do that ” said Sally, closing the door from behind.

”These people, they don even know what gaming is ” he said, bringing a poster from the table.

”My game proposal was the best so far, but they just don see it, everything was at hand, the proposal was prefect, the visuals, the animation, the color, the people, the storyline, just name it, it was God damn good, said jack, holding a paper, tearing it and throwing it into the trash can. ”I don know what else to do, Ive tried but its all just tumbling down. He picked up the magazine from the table and stared at it. ”diva glam, Id love to see you make it on game stores ”. He threw the magazine in the trashcan.

Jack Carisi was an average man in height with brown hair and short mustache, growing up in Portland was a lot to him, at the age of five, he started drawing cartoons and animations, as the years passed by, he soon realized that he had a thing for technology and games, at the age if 14, he lost his mum in a car accident, while being found at the back seat strapped to a seat belt in a ditch, the doctors called it a miracle having survived in the accident. His father was an accountant, his younger sister, Elizabeth was just 12 at the time enrolling for sophomore, the death of their mom really devastated them a lot. When he was done with high school, he decided it was time to focus on his passion, he studied game design and animation at the university of North Carolina and when he was done, he came back to Portland and launched a gaming Company M5 GAMES at northeast sandy boulevard, with him being the founder. He had a cofounder Sandra Monlitten.

M5 games consisted of a two story building, the ground floor was occupied with junior staffs of games animators, game designers, audio engineers, front desk officer, software engineers, game developers, game programmers all moving in different directions holding tabs, iPad, laptops, music sheets, animations and cartoons, books thinking about ideas for an upcoming game. Then the next floor was occupied with senior staffs of marketing officers, senior audio engineers, interpreters and translators, game play testers, receptionist, senior game programmers, software developers , then at the left wing side was the secretarys desk and the right wing side was Jack Carisis office.

Jack looked at his wrist watch ” its 5:10 already, see how time flies ”. He peeped out from the window then opened the door. ”Sally ”.

”Yes sir ”. Said Sally, standing up from her chair.

”Call robin, tell him to come right now to my office and tell Donald to bring in my favorite but no waffles these time around ”.

”Ill do that sir ”.

———————————————————————————————————————-

Earlier this month, a game company, Gintech games reached out to Jack, telling him about a game contest, the requirements for the game and the rewards. All he needed to do was to submit a game proposal.

The next day, he called everyone together and told them about the contest, they held meetings, brought in ideas, storyline, visual effects, animation and game design.

”this is perfect ”, he said to the junior and senior team. ”Make a proposal for the game, thats also a part of the requirements, This is our first and biggest contest so far, I want it detailed, every part must be stated carefully and explained comprehensively ”.

”Yes Sir ”, responded all the staffs.

”Now everybody, get back to work ”.

The crowd dismissed in unison, reappearing into groups, discussing various areas of the games. When the proposal was done, the team showed him.

”Now thats what Im talking about ”. Said Jack, smiling at the iPad. ”lets hear a brief discussion about the game, umm Steven ” he said, looking sideways.

”Yes Sir ”. Said Steven from the back of the crowd, he was tall, had black curly hairs with brown eye pupils, he came out from the crowd.

”So this is it ” he said, looking at the tablet. ”the name of the game is endless play, endless play is an actions fantasy and adventure game filed with different episodes, puzzles and quests. The game ranges from chapter to chapters, like a series of episodes, episode one you help a little girl look for her mother, after completing it, you do a puzzle or a quest in a form of Matching the right tiles like mahjong after completing the task, you move to episode 2, as each episode has a storyline, Said Steven.

”James, let me hear from you ” said Jack.

”then the game gets tedious, as the player evolves from one episode to the other, like a boy trapped in a witchs house, a girl waking up in a strange dimension of ghost and spirits, at one point, they are both trying to escape. At the end of every episode, there is always a quest and puzzle to do, should the player fail the quest, he or she can move on to the next episode ”. Said James, holding and swiping his tablet ”then here is the animation, like a preview of what the characters will look like ” he said, showing the screen to Jack ”

”Wow the characters are beautiful and fantastic ”.

”Yes, according to the requirements of Gintech ”

”Then there is the everyday login rewards, video rewards for players, the access to link their social media sites like google, twitter, Facebook to the game where they can connect with different players ”. Said Steven,

”And also the ability to choose their gender and using any username they like thereby creating an account to the game ” Said James, looking at his iPad. ”As that was also part of the requirements from Gintech ”.

”Job well done the two of you, write the proposal and then give it to Stella for cross checking ” he said, turning his direction to Stella. ”Then Stella when you are done with it, drop it on Sallys desk, have her mail it to the companys address ” Said Jack, looking over to Sally.

”Yes Sir ” they said in unison, coming from all directions.

Two days later, Jack got a call from gintech, telling him he lost the contest.

”Mr. Jack we are so sorry but you didn win, your Proposal wasn good enough ”.

”What do you mean by wasn good enough ” he said in anger.

”We didn like it, edge game company won, their proposal diva glam was a hit, the judges loved it, better luck till next time, well have another competition again and Ill fill you in ”. Said the lady.

”Don just bother, because I know my proposal was the best, we were suppose to win and get all those benefits, those contract but you people are just piece of shit ”.

The call ended on the other end, jack threw the telephone slowly at the side of the desk.

”You stupid piece of shit, I wonder what does idiots at edge games had, they are just wacky, their storyline, themes are just so horrible ”.

Edge games company was Mr. jacks rival, with Michael nelliton and Laurence cantonia as the founder, Jack hated the company with his guts and soul. Seeing the posters of diva glam at the side of the next building, the more angrier he got, he was sitting on his desk when a call came him from his personal phone, he picked it up and put in on speaker.

”Yes who am I unto? ”

”This is Michael from edge games company ”

”Well so what can I do for you ” asked jack, frowning his face

”Just wanted to say sorry for loosing the competition, try your luck next time ”.

”let me tell you something Michael, you are full of shit, and you a piece of shit, my proposal is and will always be better than you ”. Said Jack in anger.

”Better luck next time ”, said Michael, laughing and giggling in the phone ”.

Jack let out a hiss and then he cut the call.

”What a stupid piece of crap, what does he take me for, hes an idiot ”. He said, putting the phone on the table.
