Upcoming Book & Event RE: The Room Sep. 19th, 2013 @ 03:38 PM Reply

Many of you are aware we're big fans of a movie called The Room, so big in fact that JohnnyUtah, Oney and I made a ridiculous game adaptation:

  • The Room Tribute
    The Room Tribute by TomFulp

    This game is our love letter to the greatest movie ever made.

It just so happens that Greg Sestero, aka Mark, has written a book about his experience!

Greg is also a big fan of our game and mentions it in the book!

Now we're pondering making the trek to Brooklyn on October 3rd for a book launch event to meet Greg. Would anyone in NG land attend if it was officially a thing?

I would love to attend such an event, sadly I'll be unable to come. I will more then likely read the book though.


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

I've wanted to travel to NY for a while anyways, but unfortunately, I have no means of getting there. I'll be there in spirit~

That's really cool! The Room game was fantastic. Unfortunately, I would not be able to attend. I would if I could though.

Ah, we know Wiseau is a live wire, but what about Greg? Poor guy looks as boring as paint, or I'm just jelly over his looks.

Hmm, hey Tom, looks like a good event to hand out some business cards, eh?! Even if no one else here goes, and my schedule allows it, might just do it as an early birthday gift to myself. Hahaha!

It personally wasn't one of my favorite games, but it's definitley noteworthy. If only this would happen more often. Maybe the author of Love Hina has played the hentai game, hee hee.

I missed the chance to meet Tommy & Greg when they visited Toronto during their tour for the movie's 10th anniversary ...but at least a buddy of mine was able to go and had stories to tell. Shame I won't be able to make it to Brooklyn to make up for that.
