The Secret World Game Director Goes Bonkers

The Secret World Game Director Goes Bonkers

‘The Secret World’ Game Director Joel Bylos Proclaims:
 
“THE END OF DAYS IS COMING!”

- ‘The Secret World’ Game Director Joel Bylos Has Officially Gone Bonkers; Releases First Episode in Series of Videos Chronicling His Final Days on Earth -
 

On December 21st at 11:11 UTC the world is coming to an end. Apocalypse. The last goodbye. The final curtain call. Whether you believe in it or not, there is one man who does: Joel Bylos, Game Director on ‘The Secret World’ and now self-professed 2012 doomsday prophet.

Mr. Bylos – known primarily as the happy-go-lucky Australian who has brought much joy to hundreds of thousands of gamers through his work on ‘Age of Conan’ and ‘The Secret World’ – has just released a video where he begins chronicling his final days on earth:

According to Joel, the video is apparently the first in a series that he is putting together to bring attention to what he calls ‘the end of all things’. Don’t watch it; it’s just nonsense, really.

Especially that bit near the end where he tries to force the corporate hand to relinquish the subscription requirement.

As Joel would have said himself: You have been warned.

Best regards,
Funcom
