If you Team Fortress 2 nuts thought the “Meet the Medic” short was awesome, just wait until you get a look at the “Behind the Scenes” entry the guys at Valve have put up on their blog.
In it, the entire process and conception of the short is described, and in an extremely interesting way. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but the original idea was to explain the origins of the Medic’s signature Medigun, not the Ubercharge. While that sounds intriguing, ultimately I’m glad we got the absolutely rad short we have now. Check it out, and be depressed that you’ll probably never work at a company as amazing as Valve.
