I'm going to make this journal much simpler than it could be (because I'm tired, yo)
I could tell a story about how I drew 2HB as a design in Animal Crossing and sent it to the guys at Double Fine... but well... again, the tired thing.
And anyway, Tim Schafer does a much better describing what happened.
So go read my AC Double Fine Adventure!!!!
If you don't you don't have a soul! (That's a private joke between me and the link there, but you can get in on the fun if you just check it out.)
