Free Soda and Snacks
When Gabriel first showed me this video a couple weeks ago, my belly ached and I couldn’t see for the tears in my eyes from laughing so much. It’s funny because it’s true – sooooooooo very true.
Mountain Dew is the uncontested gamer’s liquid beverage of choice, and it flows freely at Gabriel’s game studio. Game companies even advertise having unlimited free soda and snacks in their job postings; it’s a part of the culture. And it’s pretty cool, who wants to grow up anyway?
