In one of the more unusual pieces of gaming news I’ve ever had to write Bioware is soon to receive a protest…in the form of 400 cupcakes. This venture was undertaken by a member at Bioware’s forums by the name of LoganKey. He was so dissatisfied with Mass Effect 3’s ending that he raised $1000 to get a bakery to make the cupcakes. Here is the post that clarifies this tasty plot:
We are currently trying to organize the delivery of a mass of cupcakes to Bioware’s studio in Edmonton. All the cupcakes will be divided into equal parts Red, Blue and Green colors…but they will all taste exactly the same. If you’d like participate, please check out the thread below and let us know.
This coming week, we should send Bioware boxes upon boxes of a dozen cupcakes. We are taking ideas as to what sort of notes we should have attached on each:
“No matter what color you choose, they all taste the same”;
“No matter what color you choose, it’s all vanilla :-D”
“We rage because we love”
Is victory sweet? Bioware will find out when the delivery reaches its offices. Of course if I was a game developer and my “punishment” for making a controversial ending to a game was to be inundated with sweet treats I’d imagine my story-building wouldn’t change.
Unless they end up with nightmares of scores of cupcakes trying to eat them.
