So who is Hugo the screentroll? by GWKTM So who is Hugo the screentroll? by GWKTM
I'm gonna do more Hugo-fanart, so I did this to clearify what it is all about.

So, Skærmtrolden Hugo was an interactive TV game played in a Danish primetime program Eleva2ren. Player who called to the studio was able to control the game with his phone buttons. Not much the same to console-gaming. It was so succesful that there was more minigames made for this unique format, leading to its seperation to its own gameshow, that was then  spread over 40 different countries - mostly European ones. Format didn't make its way to US or Canada due to some "Hugo-awards" thingy, which sure is why even you might not be familiar with it.

While the TV-game started to cancel in certain countries, its minigames were ported to multiple home platforms such as Amiga, Windows and PlayStation, and Hugo then continued as a video game franchise. Hugo's creator and first owner was Interactive Television Entertainment (aka Silverrock "Super Oswald" Productions and NDS Denmark), but character was then sold to KREA Medie (today a subsidery of Egmont Kids Media) with inferior consequences.

Hugo's current owner is Hugo Games A/S. As much faith and expertese they have about the franchise, they were only able to produce dull smart-apps that don't necessary output that faith. Sigh...

I'm having a wish that if I become a paid artist/developer some day or get a company of my own, I could become a partner of Hugo Games A/S and therefore be able to bring Hugo back on track, resulting the kind of adventures he really deserves.

Two questions though:
- Do you know any Danish fandubbers or fandubbing teams?
- Do you appear to have following Hugo game? www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…

Ok. But do you appear to have that Hugo game in link? Original TV versions of skateboard and scuba have lines that are not heard in Uniset/Hugo Gold version, so I believe those unheard lines could be found from the version I asked about.
