A few days ago, a video was posted to the backers-only section of Double Fine's forums of Tim Schafer playing/talking about Full Throttle. There were a few revelations. One is that Tim really and truly sucks at the bike-combat part of the game. Second, the game world was not intended to be post-apocalyptic. In Tim's view, people have just been seeing too much significance in the Chitlins, Whiskey and Skirt song. Another concerns the burned-out car in the junkyard. It's the car Tim had bought from his father. One day, while the game was in production, the car caught fire when he tried to start it. That happened to be the day when Peter Chan was doing the junkyard background, and thus the fire-damaged wreck of Tim's car was painted into the scene.
