This was bound to happen: Microsoft have seen the success of Nintendo’s approachable interface and they want to emulate that, and who better to be the face of approachable family gaming than the ever-punchablelovable Clippy. Hooray!

This strip is based on a lecture that I’m giving this week on interface design in games. I sometimes worry if people remember the jokes more than the content…

Oh, and happy Valentine’s day.

See you Friday!
