Malinche

I was updating the data on some of Malinche's games - and then I noticed the price tag.

$49,95 a pop. Ouch.

I know Sherman runs a commercial outfit, but I was pretty surprised all the same. Still, if he can sell his games at that price point...

Well, he does have a bunch of testimonials (which may or may not have been doctored a bit)... but whether these are genuine remains to be seen.

But surely someone's got to be paying for that "field research in Russia".

Anyway, who can compete with a pedigree like this:
It is often wondered how Howard balances such extreme "left brain" and "right brain" activities simultaneously and not lose his mind altogether in the process. It is more often marveled that Howard fully leveraged his dual heritage of creativity and business acumen to drive Malinche forward into the future.

I'll bet you he has got a completely ordinary day job to pay for his holiday trips ;)

Yes, I know ;) I just find the pompousness of the entire site, well, amusing.
That includes "field trips" and the Malinche company. Sherman has so many titles that he's got to be CEO of at least 500 people :)

What's the hourly rate for digging up potatoes?

I sometimes wonder if he lives in that world of self-delusion himself. I mean, what was the point of making up stories about "multi-million dollar companies" hiring him to write promotial games for them, like he told in Get Lamp?
