2016! 01/02/2016

by Joe

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s been a whirlwind holiday – Christmas with two kids drains more time and energy than a black hole (pardon my Hollywood-esque knowledge of space physics) :D

Hope you all had an awesome holiday season and I hope 2015 treated you well :D Here’s to 2016 being even better!

Enjoy Scene 6 – “Under Control”!

I’m 80% sure Rosa is messing with Smyth’s head an “instructed” Scrufflebeck to comply and follow him to strike later. He is probably on the same level as those teenage vampires that died a while back, arrogant of his new power.

Otter on January 2, 2016 at 8:52 pm

Much as I like that theory Otter, it’s Victor in there, and he was rather synced with Joe before Joe’s awakening, including his link to scrufflebeck. The link to Rosa through Smyth is probably monodirectional, for control and power flow though.

SomeGuy on January 3, 2016 at 11:36 pm

Dang….

Ruben on January 4, 2016 at 5:13 pm

@SomeGuy But wasn’t Smyth bitten before Rosa’s transition to the plant state? So how come Smyth has a link to Scrufflebeck? And how does he have a more powerful mind than the new Rosa?

Oddish on January 5, 2016 at 9:57 am

@Oddish the vampiric link exists, although there is no plant link directly. Smyth himself is possessed by Victor, allowing Victor’s considerable power to be brought to bear on any line that Smythe could access to Rosa. I’m saying the only potential link to scrufflebeck is from Victor, who was strongly linked to Joe during a point where he/they would have bonded with Scrufflebeck, with the potential for there being a psychic link from that.

That aside, it’s possible, due to what little we’ve been told of how the elders work, that the children gain a measure of the power of the elders when a new vampiric ability is unlocked in them, which would make it so there would be a more direct link, since Rosa is the one that embraced Smythe, not one of the other vampires. Not really much information to go on for that theory, but it would explain how a single vampire could give new strengths to the entire race, given time.

SomeGuy on January 5, 2016 at 4:39 pm

@SomeGuy That was a pretty detailed theory, thanks! I, too, am very keen to see how this pans out and to learn what exactly is going on here!

Oddish on January 6, 2016 at 10:13 am

@Someguy Victor is dead…

Niko on January 13, 2016 at 6:04 pm

@Niko
C8S18-victor’s mind image’s neck is snapped and psi-nuked. That certainly looks dead. But then…
C8S19-smyth is possessed. It could only be more heavily hinted that it’s Victor if someone outright said “Victor is posessing Smyth!”, even answering smyth’s “who are you” with a flashed “Victor”, then “Joe”, before settling on Smyth, as the merge is completed

SomeGuy on January 14, 2016 at 5:48 pm

It’s been too looooooong! If I don’t get my Pocalypse I’m going to die! Help me Joe!

Znayx on January 18, 2016 at 1:12 am

Cobranite on January 22, 2016 at 6:19 am

@ Cobranite – A capital letter for each word? My OCD wants to strangle you right now….

WM28UK on January 25, 2016 at 12:01 pm

@Cobranite @WM28UK Yeah me too I keep reading it like each word is a sentence with a period and it hurts my head. Strangling time, bud.

(oh hey I’m still alive)

Znayx on January 25, 2016 at 12:51 pm

hehe nice right

Cobranite on February 2, 2016 at 4:56 am

god DAMN. I better do a full Pocalypse recap sometime soon so i remember what was going on. Bravo on getting more of it done!

ayy on February 4, 2016 at 8:52 pm

@ayy – Thanks! Welcome back! :D

I’m still here, everyone! Been busy settling in with a new studio (makers of Dash Quest! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tinytitanstudios.DashQuest&hl=en) but I should have the next scene up as soon as I can!

Joe on February 7, 2016 at 12:18 pm

Step one: See Joe commented
Step two: Follow link in comment and watch video clip of game
Step three: Get my tablet out faster than [insert some inappropriate simile] and get the game pronto
Step four: Thank Joe before even playing the game (Thanks Joe!)
Step five: Play game
Step six: Thank Joe for directing me to a cool-ass game (Thanks again Joe!)

Znayx on February 10, 2016 at 2:06 am

Retro games are the best!

Znayx on February 10, 2016 at 2:06 am

great and nice game… but…..
I need more Pocalypse …

Ruben on February 23, 2016 at 2:42 pm

The more I see this comic the more I want an open world sandbox of it.

Erik on February 23, 2016 at 3:30 pm

Remember when this year was gonna be about more common, shorter updates, and how we had nothing but rewinds and a short update to get back into the story?

Fun times!

TitanSeraph on February 24, 2016 at 12:16 am

Ahh, get good all hopeful, now make goof cry

Goof on February 24, 2016 at 11:04 am

Its been too long, Joe! Please update us soon.

Belxo on February 28, 2016 at 1:33 am

We’re still here, Joe! You’re not rid of your fans just yet! =P

BloodWolf7 on March 1, 2016 at 2:37 am

Though my comp is dead and what I’m using to check the site can’t display the videos (even if it did the screen is cracked and I need to get it fixed/replaced). Still, I’m checking! Looking forward to having some new stuff to view once I get it repaired

BloodWolf7 on March 1, 2016 at 2:38 am

Still here, everyone! :D Sorry for the super long wait! Too much to do and not enough me to do it all!

Joe on March 5, 2016 at 12:25 am

Don’t worry Joe I am still here :D

Cobranite on March 6, 2016 at 3:08 am

Joe! we’d love to hear from you. It’s a busy life and we know it, we hope you’re doing well

Belxo on March 6, 2016 at 3:51 am

Indeed, don’t break yourself and don’t break down Joe! We understand, no rush!

BloodWolf7 on March 7, 2016 at 2:27 am

I blame Donald Trump for Joe’s lack of content. Even though im from UK i still blame him for everthing bad.

WM28UK on March 7, 2016 at 10:32 am

I blame ties for Joe’s lack of content. Ties are terrible things that are clearly doing evil work. Sure, they look nice, but it’s clearly the reason why bad things happen. Someone, somewhere, is wearing a tie in relation to those bad things happening. It is obvious to me that they are the Secret Apocalypse, and working to bring The Pocalypse to life (while obviously working to prevent the truth from coming out)! Scheming, always, to do such things.

BloodWolf7 on March 8, 2016 at 2:45 am

The worse ones are those damn Tie Fighters,always causing trouble!

WM28UK on March 8, 2016 at 12:55 pm

Very unskilled, but there’s always a lot of them. You just never seem to be able to break free of them. I suppose that’s to be expected when something can be so cheaply mass produced. Break free, dear friends! Break free!

BloodWolf7 on March 9, 2016 at 4:53 am

@BloodWolf7
Ties from the Project Pocalypse send their regards.

Krawat on March 23, 2016 at 11:33 am

I’m wondering what the future will bring for this comic, now that Java is basically dead.
