Tim Schafer celebrates his vigintennial of gaming

That’s 20 years! Mr. Schafer, a man with a heart as big as the world, has decided to commemorate the first 20 years of his career by showing anyone who’s interested how he got his foot in the door. First, he got turned down… a lot. Then LucasFilm Games Division asked him if he’d like to apply for a job. Then he invented a text-based adventure type resume outlining him getting the job and sent it into LucasFilm. And they hired him!

For other amazing rejection letters and Schafer’s own commentary head on over to Double Fine and peruse at your leisure.
