Is that a Pie Devil in your pocket?

The Original

Do my eyes deceive me, or is that Romeo on a mobile phone? Could Juliet and the Pie Devil be nearby? Could this mean the long-awaited Multimedia Fusion 2 Java runtime, which François announced at last year’s Click Convention, is finally nearing release? Daddy, why is there hair growing where there wasn’t hair before?

Whoa, hold on there, young buckaroo (Kyle Pulver)…

Yes, before there was RomeoPie Software, there was Romeo and the Pie Devil, a simple platform game that came with the original Klik n’ Play. Ostensibly the brainchild of Clickteam Overlords François and Yves, this game stole the hearts of many a Klik’er, what with its charming graphics and… Pie Devil. Seriously, we love Romeo and the Pie Devil.

Now The Daily Click (the premiere Click website) is purporting that the images and video of this game was brought to them by a “source who claims is on the inside” (cybernetic ninja spyssasin). Is it real? No one knows for sure, but you can check out another image here, and there’s also some in-game footage in the latest Klikcast (at around 6:40 minutes left).

But now that I think about it, there’s no way François and Yves would allow such a thing to be leaked, unless…

Unless they wanted it to be leaked! Good Pie Devil, they’ve been orchestrating this entire thing from the very beginning!

Diamond Densetsu Gaiden: Everylasting Symphony of the Red Diamond

…comes a whole new experience that is guaranteed to change the face of electronic entertainment forever. During a private unveiling of the game in San Francisco this past weekend, reknowned movie critic Roger Ebert purportedly took his hands off the keyboard after just 10 seconds of play and said+, quietly and to no one in particular:

I’ve heard many arguments for why games are art. This is best one. I am convinced. My hat is off to you, Romeopie.

He then proceeded to cry real tears of joy which, he claimed, “had not touched my cheeks in over 75 years. Since the Great War.” It is not understood exactly which war to which Mr. Ebert was referring, or how he could have cried before he was born, in 1942. However, those in attendance were compelled to believe that he was being genuine with his emotions.

+ This is completely false.
