For a couple years I wanted to make a historical fiction video game set in Persia in 1258. But by the time I finished the outline, I got so busy with other things that I never even started the actual game making part. And I have almost no free time now, so I figured that I might as well release the script and at least let you read it since you’ll never be able to play it.
This is a screenplay I hope to have made into an animation. If you are a Flash artist and are interested in animating this, please get in touch with me! I’ll even pay you 25 cents!

“The Grass Is Always Greener on the other Side (of the Iron Curtain)”
By John Everett
[Open to a snowy sky. Pan down to see a man in a trench coat walking down a street. He is wearing an Ushanka with the flaps down.]
Pedestrian: My name is Grigory. I live in the USSR, in glorious motherland of Russia. Today I lost my job at factory just outside my village. (He passes a barn.) But I don’t care. I know that my government will take care of me, not like in Capitalist America where they let you die of hunger if you lose your job. (He walks into a village.) That is why we will win Cold War. If the proletariats are taken care of, everything else works.
