Adam Saltsman is the developer of Canabalt. He has written an interesting essay comparing Shinji Mikami’s critically dismissed Vanquish with the Wachowski siblings’ Speed Racer. My only question is why the fuck he decided to publish it as a public dump on pastebin. I'm going to assume it's a clever joke that I don't get because I have achieved old-fartdom.
Also: ‘vanquish’ is a weird-looking word when you spend to much time looking at it.
