  1. Hey Brian,

    On this very site you wrote, “I was wandering near my hotel in Edinburgh the other day, and being somewhat esurient, was on the lookout for vittles.”

    I can only say two things… well three, actually. First – THAT sentence is so YOU on so many levels. I mean you put, esurient into the middle of an otherwise plebeian composition. For most others, it would most certainly be so as to obfuscate some deep seeded insecurity that impels them to verbally overcompensate. With you, however, one comes to realize that, like putting sugar in the coffee, one can’t seem to live without it once we realize how much we like the way it tastes. (ha, I said, obfuscate…)

    Second – I miss you.

    Third – I credit you with single handedly giving me both the tools and model business acumen model to make a decent living all these years. So, I just needed to take a moment to say thanks.


    PS – and I do miss you

  2. Hey Sean!

    You’re most welcome, but you deserve the credit – you did all the work!

    I miss you too – I have such great memories of working on the Aikido newsletter with you and all the time spent in the dojo. You were always such a great Sempai to me, welcoming me into the dojo, pushing my technique, and sharing so much information. You taught me a lot of lessons on and off the mat, so I say thank you right back!

    PS I’ve been looking for a way to put esurient into a blog post for a long time. 🙂

  3. Hey brian. I have a question as I’ve been looking everywhere. I do recall seeing a site a long time ago that had pictures of the internal fiends of family alpha (not beta) of Underlight. I can’t seem to find any of these pics anymore and I’ve been trying to compile a gallery with all the UL pics I can. I know that the UL client was redesigned after the original concept was a bit old. The second iteration had improved character models but where not the final product. It’s the pictures from the first iteration the alpha that I’m trying to find. If you have any could you please email them to me 🙂 I’ll continue to scour the internet for that ONE internet site that had some of the “friends and family” alpha pics of Underlight. Thanks again for all your hard work Brian! Underlight lives on!

  4. Hey there – I’ll have to deep dive into my archives and see what I can turn up. I’m in the midst of a new game project actually! 🙂 (So it might take me a bit of time…)
