No, MrMister was just an annoying troll.

About the linkage, seems like LOTS of sites have linked to the demakes thread. BoingBoing as well as Destructoid just to name some others. Perfect example of viral internet action.

I've never felt more proud of this community! I wonder who was the first to write about it..a staff member of a gaming site who also happened to be a Pixelation member? A bored anonymous writer looking for something fresh and exciting?

Checking it again, Kotaku claims to have noticed it off of BoingBoing, so I assume it appeared there first.
Someone should tip them off about Mockup Frenzy #8 in a month or two.

A friend of mine started a fun little project to kill some time when bored on the net and he asked me to spread the word. Anybody's welcome to give it a shot, and upload one or two too.

Cavestory has stolen many, many yesterdays. It should be arrested.
