- We've briefly mentioned it before, but Wired News has now posted some awesomely in-depth pics of Three Rings' office in San Francisco, showcasing the awesome-o office design from the Puzzle Pirates/Bang! Howdy folks.

As the intro notes: "From the outside, the offices of San Francisco game company Three Rings Design look like any small game studio, but the building's bowels are leagues from ordinary. The company's loft, in the trendy South of Market district, has been painstakingly outfitted to resemble The Nautilus from Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The offices have an attacking octopus couch, a secret lounge hidden behind a bookcase, captain's quarters and a steampunk bike rack, plus a ton of other Victorian details."

[BONUS: Random fact - when Three Rings boss Daniel James last visited the CMP Game Group digs here in SF, he spotted that my office window could see directly into his office window - albeit from a couple of blocks away. Now I can't see it at all, thanks to a posh new skyscraper being erected in between the two. So no more Rear Window shenanigans for me, then!]
