This concludes my trilogy of contributions to Demo Derby (I gave these Undergrounds to Drew at PAX last year). Hope y'all enjoy the MST3K stuff in this issue. The guys don't catch on immediately, but the MST3K guys are making fun of the intros to the first four issues (this is the 5th).
As for the "we're going to teach you how to make a game segment," it did pay off, but it took more than a year. The result was a game called Project Wormhole, which was a fully playable game and similar to N₂O Nitrous Oxide.
