Fresh off his reclaiming of the Donkey Kong Jr. world record, King of Kong star Steve Wiebe will make another attempt to re-capture the high-score for Donkey Kong from rival Billy Mitchell at next week's Game Developer Convention, thanks to bug-tracking software developer Atlassian (Jira).
"Last weekend, I watched the documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters," explains Atlassian's marketing events manager Jessie Curtner. It's an awesome flick about the World Champions in the classic arcade game, Donkey Kong. ... After watching the documentary I thought, 'Wouldn't it be cool if Steve would come play Donkey Kong at [GDC]?' Well, Steve has agreed to do just that."
Wiebe will hang out at Atlassian's booth (#2132) from March 11-13th around 10AM 6PM, giving out autographs when he's not trying to beat Michell's Donkey Kong high score. If you have a copy of his new Christian music album, here's your chance to get that signed!
