Tel: 514-690-6521


Montreal, Crankshaft Games HQ, July 23rd, 2010- The official news of Crankshaft Games offices closing down has been confirmed. The reason being related to the eminent release date of Star Craft 2. The order was approved by all stakeholders, shareholders, outside/inside consultants and Glida, Crankshaft Games' messenger pigeon.
The executive decision was taken after 3 two-hour meetings held at Crankshaft Games HQ (DanM's apartment) over the course of last week. A quote from our President sums it up nicely, "Well, we think the time invested in deciding whether or not to close our doors to play SC2 was resources well spent. We foresee this increasing our ROI and the overall value of Crankshaft Games". One anonymous economist replied to the statements saying "This tactic of closing shop to increase value may be inline with their global strategy to trade company stock publicly on the NYSE in the coming months... Well played boys!"
The 3-week workflow plan is as follows:

  • Monday- rest, catch up on sleep, stretch thumbs, revisit some light SC strategies (i.e. Marine/medic, reaver drop, etc)
  • Tuesday- game day breakfast at Spicy Borrito and quick nap before 3pm release
  • Post Release- once SC2 is released a diet of Red Bull and Uncle Ben's rice will be in order with no more than 3 hours of sleep per night.

"If this isn't productivity, then I don't know what is" says recently promoted Executive Vice President of Productivity Alex Galasso.
