E-Mails That Never Received a Reply #2: The DeBono-Square-Enix Connection

Sun, 07/18/2004 — Sak

The following e-mail was sent to Square-Enix of America aproximately a week ago; I wanted to enlighten them to the fact that they had the resources and perogative to develop and release upon the unsuspecting huddled masses an Edward DeBono electronic console game! They never responded.

Dear Square-Enix,

Hello, I've been an avid gamer and Squaresoft enthusiast for years upon years (I have to admit, however, that Enix's games have never truly appealed to me in the past -- this is one of my more idiosyncratic traits I wish to overcome in the near future). I consider the U.S. releases of Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy VI as, respectively, Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy III, hallmarks of my childhood years.

I write not to you now to extol the triumphs of past glories (however much you may deserve them!), but to make a request. For at least as many years as I have been a fan of Square, I have been a fan of one Mr. Edward De Bono. His website (http://www.edwdebono.com) is filled with ideas that are truly worthy of note! His ability to conceive and execute new modes of thought has earned him the moniker of "NMT" (or, "New Millenium Thinker").

My request to Square-Enix, is that they please browse through a few of Mr. De Bono's pages -- and, well, here comes my agenda! First off, I have to say that I do not know Mr. De Bono, have never had any sort of contact with him, nor am I a relative of his, I am simply a fan! However, I think his games would be truly wonderful if ported to the electronic medium! Think of the possibilities -- for example, imagine a Final Fantasy minigame created by Edward De Bono! It could be like his classic 3 Spot game (http://www.edwdebono.com/debono/3spot.htm), wherein the winner isn't always the winner!

I think a combined force of Mr. De Bono, Square, and Enix would be a force to be reckoned with; a triumverate not seen since the days of Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus! Please do write me back.

Thank you for your time,
