“Sandbenders” is a William Gibson reference – in Idoru, they’re a company that takes commodity components and puts them in a really beautiful package, with a pretty OS. Hand-carved cases, semi-precious stones for the buttons.

I’m debating if I want to explain this anywhere in the story or not. Probably just having Carol refer to her Sandbenders on-camera again will be enough to say “this is the company that makes her computer”.

  1. Really great comic! I had a blast reading this, like a game… We will probably use this as an inspiration in our game design workshops to design a game concept based upon it.

    • Oooh, let me know what you come up with, I’m curious! I actually have some notes for a game based on the comic as well, but I won’t show them to you until afterwards. *grin*

      (For bonus points, try to make it a game without killing. Rita really isn’t a murderbot kinda gal.)
