Homeless man secures Suda interview, drinks free beer at GDC

1 min read


I think I’ve just discovered my new hero, save for the fact that he’s a hobo and a moocher – but he certainly has balls. A homeless man managed to sneak in to a swanky Lollipop chainsaw party at this year’s Game Developer’s Conference under the guise of being a journalist – eventually securing an interview with Grasshopper’s famed auteur Suda 51.

"Suda was conducting interviews with press for most of the night," a source told CVG. "Later on in the evening a journalist from Edge arrived for what he thought was an exclusive one-on-one interview, but a second man checked in with him.

"There were plenty of drinks flowing at the event so nobody took much notice that this second ‘journalist’ was heavily soaked in beer. Warner thought the guy was with Suda’s people and the journalist seemed to assume he was with Warner.

"He managed about 10 minutes seated with Suda, mostly stroking his chin and nodding his head.

"Eventually it became quite clear he wasn’t a journalist – he was in fact a homeless guy that managed to blag himself all the way to the interview. PR staff quietly ushered him away and Suda seemed pretty speechless about it."

Free beer and a chat with Suda? Give that man a bells!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
