Freeverse Interviewed
7:00 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer's Ledge has posted a very humorous interview with Freeverse, creators of such freeware and shareware gems as SimStapler and Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab. A company formed by two brothers, Freeverse is known for a quirky sense of humor -- quite evident in their interview responses -- as well as some really snazzy graphics and illustrations in their numerous titles.

One of their earliest creations, Jared: Butcher of Song, has achieved an astounding amount of media attention totally out of proportion to its simple design and (lack of) function. The interview delves into the origin of this software 'toy' and who Jared might be, exactly:

What's the real story behind Jared? I mean the REAL story... not that bilge you try to get people to believe...

Okay, maybe its time that Jared's secret identity was finally revealed...

Jared is the third Freeverse brother. He is a therapist with two masters degrees and he really did learn that famous song of his while working in a Guatemalan orphanage. The genius of Jared, (other than the fact that everything he sings sounds a little bit like "Blue Moon"), is that he is, sincerely and earnestly, trying to sing his best. For years the canyon sized gap between Jared's vocal aspirations and abilities was an endless source of brotherly amusement for Ian and I.

For more details about the origin of Freeverse and their future ninja-based titles, check out the rest of the interview.
