PAX East 2014 Interview: Will Brierly



By Allen

PAX East, a video games-centric convention held in Boston, Massachusetts annually and run by Mike Krahulik, Robert Khoo, and Jerry Holkins of Penny Arcade was this past weekend. I had the fortune of attending on Saturday, and I spent most of my time scouring the crowded show floor for independent developers looking to share a word about their games and position in the industry.

Will Brierly is an interesting person. He’s the man behind Soda Drinker Pro, a game that represents one beautiful joke taken just far enough to actually loop around and be hilarious. I only managed to ask Will a few questions not for lack of time or words. Rather, I was just utterly stunned by the beautiful weirdness that was Vivian Clark playing on the screen next to us. For a game inside of a game, it sure looks cool, and Soda Drinker Pro needs to be seen to be believed. I love it, I love Will and his sense of humor, and it’s this kind of enthusiastic willingness to never let up on a joke that makes him and this game so fascinating.
