Setting the Bar: featuring comments from Prismata writer Mike Fong 2
As the guy at Lunarch Studios who does most of the work that a producer would do at a larger studio, I get to interact with a lot of very talented people—artists, musicians, and of course our very own writer Mike Fong. Mike lives 1000 kilometers away in Boston, so I often consult with him over video calls or instant messenger to ensure that the art we commission agrees with the intended story details.
Elyot: What changes to the bar do we want the artist to make?
Mike: Make it less purple.
Elyot: I like purple.
Mike: Swade’s only friends are the demons inside his head. I just don’t think his regular hangout for drinking alone is a purple bar.
Elyot: At least it doesn’t look like a place where one goes to pick up chicks.
Mike: No, it looks like a place where one goes to pick up dudes.
Elyot: Yeah, yeah, whatever, we can mess with the hues later.
