Wishbone: WISHBONE'S TALE: PART SEVEN The last day
The next morning started the same as the one before, with the 6 of us eating breakfast and chatting. Fortunately, this time I was not hung over. Breakfast concluded, we each retired to our rooms to pack our things, because we were checking out before leaving for GOG HQ today.
MarkoH01 had complained about his small bag, not knowing how to fit the GOG swag into it, particularly the glass. When we met downstairs before getting picked up, and we actually saw
how small his bag was, we promptly dubbed him the "Tetris Meister". I don't know how he managed to fit everything inside, but he did.
At this point, we had to say goodbye to Gersen, because his plane home was leaving around lunchtime, so he had to go to the airport right away. He took a taxi there, while the rest of us took one back to GOG HQ.
And then they were 5... More discussions
We spent the morning in another meeting room, talking to some of the product acquisition people. We didn't talk much about specific games, developers or publishers, but mostly about how they went about their work, and the kinds of challenges they faced.
Around noon more goodbyes had to be said, as JMich, MarkoH01 and PaterAlf had to leave for the airport, to catch their respective planes.
And then there were 2... Winding down
The planned program was now over. GR00T and I went to lunch in the canteen, and then moved into the marketing office. We each got a desk and a laptop, to play more games if we wanted to, or just to relax. At this point we were quite tired, both physically and mentally. The past two days had been heavy on input, and processing it all was tiring. We spent some hours playing games, surfing the net, and talking to a few people here and there.
Around 17:00, two taxis came for us. I was going to the airport to catch my plane home, and GR00T was going to another hotel, as his plane didn't leave until the next morning. We said our goodbyes to each other, and to fables22 and elcook who had taken care of us while we were there, and then went our separate ways.
And then there were none...
