German Marius Fietzek wants a job at Tim Schafer’s Double Fine, who are getting to work on a brand new graphic adventure game. To apply, he didn’t just send in a letter. He made a video game.
Fietzek’s effort, done almost perfectly in the style of an old Lucasarts adventure game (ie where Schafer and co-worker Ron Gilbert got famous), will hopefully go down a treat with his prospective employers.
You’d think it would with Schafer, who did almost exactly the same thing when applying for a job in 1989 with what was then Lucasfilm.

UPDATE - It worked! Kind of. Marius ended up with an internship at Double-Fine.
