When Blizzard announced its latest expansion for its card game Hearthstone, 'Journey to Un'Goro', some fans were disappointed that it didn't get a musical trailer. So Reddit asked for one. Then it started a petition. Then the game's director, Ben Brode, delivered.
"How does this thread have 5k+ upvotes?" he tweeted yesterday, before sitting down to spit some Un'Goro inspired lyrics. Considering the tricky subject matter, an ancient jungle filled with elemental power, he does a respectable job with the song.
Brode is a fan favorite for Hearthstone players, answering questions on social media and his distinctive laugh has become a meme within the community. Two years ago the Hearthstone subreddit even celebrated a Ben Brode day.
