Short version: not half bad — but don’t think about it too hard, or at all.Continue reading My mini-review of JUNGLE CRUISE.
Business Agency Delivering Great Educational Resources (BADGER)
Logo: A snarling badger, one paw raised as if to strike. The badger wears a generic jumpsuit and a tactical earpiece/HUD display.
…They came up with the name and the logo first, then found a backwards acronym generator afterward. And, yes: even supervillain companies use those. Ain’t computer technology grand?Continue reading Group Seed: Business Agency Delivering Great Educational Resources (BADGER).
