My dreams last night ran an ad for a video game.


Seriously, the narrative would get interrupted to bring me a commercial for something called "CLAW" which began with a young boy shooting a golden zebra with a bow and arrow, then followed this kid as he sort of devolved into a monkey, hunting more and more primitive animals with more and more primitive weapons, while a choir of female voices in the background listed off the names of famous hunters (of which Sigurd, Atalanta, Nimrod, and Sabertooth were the only ones I caught.)  The tagline was something like "You don't need to use your teeth."

It ran this ad, without notable variation, twice across my brain.

I have not been watching TV for the last few weeks, and I'm worried my brain is trying to fill the niche.

Congratulations! You've been selected to beta-test a new advertising techinique.

We at Dream-Vertizing believe that while you can fast-forward through television commericials, you can't fast-forward through your dreams.

And in coming months, you can look forward to Dream-Vertizements featuring the fast-growing pharmaceutical and personal enhancement industries!

As long as they aren't in a language I don't speak, like the spam I get in German... I can count to five in German, and that's it.

This completely makes my day--thanks for a good laugh!!

Doesn't this happen in Max Headroom?

Yay - somebody else remembers Max

Reminds me of a Transmet Issue when Spider had blip verts in his brain while he slept.

"The Hemmorage That Refrestes -- EBOLA COLA"

that's excellent.

you tripster.


That's fucking awesome, and I wish I were working on that game.

Maybe your subconscious has a point here. 'd play a game with that premise - it sounds... interesting.

Maybe ANOTHER career opportunity for you?

I'd only start to worry if you have a recurring dream that gets cancelled by Fox.

I'd play it.

(Wait, a golden zebra? What color were the stripes?)

Well, I must say, this I immediately thought this has to do with Red Storm, besides the obvious video game connection... CLAW...GRAW... and the pattern of code naming the games after famous generals (or hunters in your case)..

Just a thought

Well, there is/was a game named Claw, but it doesn't resemble your dream. Captain Claw was a feline pirate; the game is a 2D platformer.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claw_(computer_game) :

The story is similar to many pirate films, games and other sources: a famous pirate, Captain Nathaniel Joseph Claw was imprisoned by the Cocker-Spaniards (a dog species, a pun on Cocker Spaniel). In the prison he learns about the Amulet of Nine Lives - a mystical artifact that grants its wearer near-immortality. Breaking out of his cell, Claw sets out to collect all 9 gems of the amulet and retrieve it for himself. The game begins with Claw outside his cell.

The day wikipedia stops making me discover more interesting stuff is the day I stop participating to it.

Clearly your brains want you to make that game. Now all you have to do is learn to program.

*blink* Well, shoot. I'd play it.

That game sounds amazing and I want to play it right now.

Somewhere in the world today, a game designer is seriously contemplating blatant plagiarism.
