Everyone Wants Games!

An odd request for a video game.
I completely forgot about this until I came across these images.  Champion paper company had the idea to boost sales of laser printer paper by including a video game in with a pack of paper.  Kinda like a box of cereal, just a tad bit weirder :)  Anyhow, these images are from a proposal that we did for Champion.  They really liked the idea, but in the end decided that the amount of money for a video game was more than what they might get from other forms of advertising.  This was probably the strangest thing I have encountered since developing video games.



This is the product the game was to be packaged with.
