Hamlet - "Everybody dies".

Now we can say Defcon is influenced by Shakespeare.

I'm so shocked about that one, I don't even know if I should look it up, or just trust you, that Shakespeare actually wrote that.

"Everybody dies. But not today. Some day in the future people will die. Mostly after they had a nice life and a few kids. That's the way it is, fellows! But we designed this PC game. You can try to kill everyone and stay alive yourself. We like it, and we hope you'll like it, too. . That would be great, because if you do, we can have a nice life and a few kids."


Also possible, but a bit too long. And somehow destroying the mood.

hehe. Maybe if you just keep "Everybody dies." And then change "But not today" to "Today.", so you'll get "Everybody dies. Today."

EDIT: Just checked wikiquote, both Shakespeare and Hamlet, and the word everybody isn't used in Hamlet, (if it is, it's not a famous quote or something like that) and Shakespeare, never said everybody either (at least not in quote). And you can quote me on that. :wink: (Me=bad humour.)

...And in tomorrow's weather, we expect highs in the mid-70s, partly cloudy skies, winds from the southwest, and a 72% chance of radioactive fallout.
