Through the pain, frustration, and confusion doled out in generous quantities by the gaming industry, sometimes a gem will emerge. Jeremy Vinar and Mike Fahmie met during the creation of one such gem, Superman Returns DS. It was during this time they devised their mad plan to create a web comic, below is the actual conversation:
Jeremy: Youre Funny.
Jeremy: We should make a webcomic!
A mere 3 years later Mike answered Jeremys challenge and Virtual Shackles was born. Their comic, an exploration of video games and the world of video game development, follows the careers of Orion and Jack as they inexplicably remain at a company that neither values nor appreciates their effort (or lack thereof).
