Hi skelefolks, thought this might be of interest, or amusing, or diverting,
or something.

About a trillion years ago--eleven to be exact--before LOST SKELETON (the
time known as BLS) I created THE WISE-EYE GUYS for an internet company known
as Bali Hai Entertainment.  WISE-EYE GUYS was a nonlinear, interactive
adventure in retro style for kids and their adult counterparts.  It followed
the adventures of four odd superheroes of vague and indeterminate powers as
they worked on their latest mystery on their home base, Weg Island.  The user
could choose any of the four and follow him/her along, looking for rollover
clues and suspects along the way in this somewhat surreal world where
seemingly anything could happen.

Besides writing it and designing the characters, I created hundreds of
drawings, first on paper, then on a Wacom tablet.  This was animation done in
the purely traditional way, which seemed to fit the whole retro feel of the
piece (black and white of course).  The voices were done by two people; wild
and wacky Jennifer Blaire did all female voices while that irrepressible
madcap Cortney Skinner did all the male voices (well, I did one, but you'll
have to guess).

By the time we'd completed chapter two Bali Hai had become victim of the
internet crash of 2000.  So two chapters are all that exist of the WISE-EYE
GUYS' first adventure "The Secret of Brozen Floke".

Recently, that clever dp/filmmaker extraordinaire AJ Rickert-Epstein, just
for grins, taped a screen as he played Chapter 2, giving some idea of the
look and feel of the piece (linked below).  In the future I'll post some more
WISE-EYE GUYS artifacts.
