Big Changes For Me! 02/05/2013

by Joe

Interesting news! A company has approached me and wants me to work as an artist for them. I have accepted the position and I’m starting next week :D

Unfortunately, since the TPD2 crowd-funding campaign didn’t reach its goal and production is taking longer than expected because of that, I’ve taken this job partly to throw some more money into the bank :D That is also why Green Pixel has thrown the extended Dr. Vile game into the production pipeline. Luckily, I’ll still be doing what I love to do as an artist and I’ll be working with some cool new people!

This job will not affect The Pocalypse or Green Pixel but it will, obviously, take up my day time. I will continue working on scenes and Green Pixel games on nights and weekends :D

Thank you for support and understanding while I make this big life change! As you know, I’m used to life changes (ie. Japan :D) so hopefully this won’t be too big of a deal. TPD2 is still in production and I’ll still make scenes!

Just wanted to let you all know and I’ll keep you updated! :D

Enjoy Scene 15 – “It’s Her”!

Vote to see all the enemies that you’ll be facing in TPD2! Good luck to us humans! :D Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! Thank you for voting!

Aaaaaahhh I thought they were finally going to see each other DANGIT.

Nivella on February 5, 2013 at 8:04 pm

GODDAMMIT!!! You enjoy torturing us like this don’t you, Joe? Can’t wait for the next one!

zach on February 5, 2013 at 8:14 pm

Well, the cage’s gone. We’re all dead. And now we know it’s definitely her. Dammit. REDRUM!!!!!

Damina DAnte on February 5, 2013 at 8:17 pm

Wait. I’ve got it. Victor is pretending to be Joe with ‘amnesia’…THAT’S real Joe breaking out!?!?? Or Victor’s mind is so wrapped up in Joe’s that he thinks Annika is actually his sister, and wants to break out of his mind to “protect” her?! I have so many different ideas spinning around in my head to explain this…I’m going to go absolutely INSANE trying to figure it out until the next update!!! Anyways……congrats on the new job, Joe!! I hope you still remember us once you become king of the internet art world!!

NarniaNerd on February 5, 2013 at 8:27 pm

Oh shit, here we go… gotta love those cliff hangers… ._.

(not-so-sporty) sporto on February 5, 2013 at 8:48 pm

I guess victor thinks he’s joe, too.

robert on February 5, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Great… So she’s ¿Victor?’s sister too? And he’s even more protective of her than Joe? I wonder if Joe is going to get his memories back soon…

NeoWarrior on February 5, 2013 at 9:06 pm

Oh damn! SHIT JUST GOT REAL!

SilentCobra on February 5, 2013 at 9:19 pm

@NarniaNerd I think it’s pretty simple, Victor’s in the box, and, although he tells people he is the real Joe, he knows, as well as Sam does, that if joe meets his sister, he will develop control of his power and kill Victor. Dont ask me what is the conection between a sister and super powers. And sorry for possible mistakes, my english ain’t so good.

Lucas on February 5, 2013 at 9:50 pm

Congrats on the job, joe!

Brenkie on February 5, 2013 at 9:59 pm

Well,the whole of the colony is boarding that hand-basket straight to Hell, now isn’t it?

BloodWolf7 on February 5, 2013 at 10:09 pm

Thanks, everyone! The job shouldn’t affect The Pocalypse since I can’t possibly post less than I am now ;D But I did want to let you all know and I appreciate the support!

Joe on February 5, 2013 at 10:11 pm

I just figured out what will happen next. I’ve seen every episode at least thrice, so I know AJs(Let us use this to describe Author Joe from now on. It is easier to type) style. IF you want to know as well, you need to call M. Night Shamamalamasama.

Pseudonym_ on February 5, 2013 at 10:27 pm

@Pseudonym_: M. Night Shyamalan. And yes, if that is a reference to the Sixth Sense’s complete turnaround at the end, then yeah. Sort of like that every episode.

Lil'T on February 5, 2013 at 10:37 pm

“I know what you’RE capable of”

Geoff on February 5, 2013 at 11:20 pm

@ Geoff – Thanks for the catch! Fixed! :D

Joe on February 5, 2013 at 11:22 pm

Nice cliffhanger.
Congrats for your new job Joe!

Geoff on February 5, 2013 at 11:25 pm

im gona start to hate you joe for this clifhangers :)

A NEW FAN on February 6, 2013 at 1:40 am

Congrats on the new job and thx for the new episode. Great twist and cliffhanger. One thing that I miss when getting such a cliffhanger is the 5 second zoom and screen pauze on the character to let the cliffhanger sink into the brain.. Now its so abrubt knowing we have to wait again for th enext episode… Those 5 seconds can prepare one for that black void of uncertainty. ;) Is the world going to end? Will Evil Joe take over the plant mind? Or annika’s?…. ohh the possibilities are endless..

Werner de JOng on February 6, 2013 at 5:26 am

Oh shit he’s FREEEEE!!!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES

Nomad on February 6, 2013 at 6:37 am

Aww!! Another cliffhanger!! But anyways, it’s still awesome!! BTW, congrats on your new job! :)

Maurice on February 6, 2013 at 7:48 am

good luck in your new job joe. and omg, we’re fucked, well they are. lol

ZidaneRobbie on February 6, 2013 at 8:24 am

wait what dajkladsjklads now i’m confused!!

YOU’VE TOLD US LIES AUTHOR JOE!! LIES!!! WHO’S THE REAL JOE???

JT on February 6, 2013 at 10:17 am

I think I posted this at the time, but one possibility I saw when the cage was damaged was that Victor’s memories, thoughts, psyche, etc might have leaked through the cracks a little, causing the amnesia and apparent damage control. It’s quite possible Joe doesn’t have any siblings, and it’s Victor’s family that he remembers. The other option is that Joe is starting to leak into Victors mind. I have a feeling that before this is all over they will cease being two entities, whether due to one or the other of them dying, or both blending into an amalgamation of their memories and personalities.

Some Guy on February 6, 2013 at 11:29 am

Some men get real angry when you try to steal their bitches and hoes.

Victor be trippin!

Wayne Mangham on February 6, 2013 at 12:38 pm

i´m with lucas….victor is freaking out cause he knows that meeting his sister, someone he genuinely cares about, will be one killer motivation for joe to fight – be it against the machines, vampires OR victor. so he seizes this last chance to take control of joe before he can meet annika. the only thing that keeps me from freaking out is that when rosa, sam and maybe even gorp work together they should be able to put victor back into a cage….btw, shouldn´t rosa due to their blood-connection, sense that something is off right away?

Peya Luna on February 6, 2013 at 1:18 pm

HOLY SHIT!!

amazing scene!

Tio Ba on February 6, 2013 at 3:02 pm

“YOU CAN’T HAVE HER!” Whoa. What the heck is going on!? Is Inner Joe really that other guy, or is it the real Joe!? I’m confused! O_O

I'll Eat Yourself on February 6, 2013 at 4:16 pm

Inner Joe is apparently somehow the real Joe, who is still supposed to be Victor. Maybe Inner Joe absorbed the unconscious Victor a long time ago, or something?

aattss on February 6, 2013 at 5:15 pm

Doc: “We need to get started right away! Ah, if I could scoop all Your brains out for closer investigation!”
Rosa: “Um, probably best if we didn’t do that.”
Doc: “Hmm! Then we have a lot MORE of work ahead of us.

That would sound more like a Doc.

EnterTheNameHere on February 6, 2013 at 5:59 pm

NOOOOOO! Why JOE!? Stupid cliffhangers. Congrats on the new job. This scene was great.

Soph on February 6, 2013 at 8:19 pm

Joe, I love your comic, I love what you do, but we all are here because we care about you and we think you have a problem, you’re addicted to cliff hangers, I know this is hard to hear but it needs to get out in the open so we can help you. And so the rest of us can finally see Annika and Joe finally meet :P

Nadodan on February 6, 2013 at 8:54 pm

WOW, I think this is the first legitimate cliffhanger we’ve had for a while (a well-timed bombshell dropping of new info)

Most of them had been what will do about the choices that have been stewing for a while, but this, this is something shockingly well placed.
Victor is within Joe, perhaps because he wanted the happiness Joe enjoyed before the ‘accident’.
Perhaps Victor simply wanted a ‘normal human’ life, or perhaps through envy he just doesn’t want anyone else having one…
Either way I didn’t think Victor had such a ‘human’ reason for wanting to live.
Perhaps both Joe and Victor can be saved..?

sh4d0wfl4re on February 6, 2013 at 11:46 pm

am i the only one who thinks, that victor will try to posess his sister? i mean he didnt say “she was out of reach” for a reason.

Stone on February 7, 2013 at 1:08 am

*no reason

Stone on February 7, 2013 at 1:09 am

I have said before that maybe Joe will recognize Annika, but maybe she won’t recognize him. If Victor, or whoever is (was) trapped in Joe’s mind, knows Annika, maybe she is like Joe and has one of the subjects within her, but is kinda sleeping (what could explain why she has no powers like Joe). Or maybe like someone said before, Victor’s memories “leaked” to Joe’s own conscience, since they are two minds in one body, we don’t know what effects one could have over each other. Oh well, all we can do is wait (im)patiently for the next scene. Congratulations on the comic author Joe and in your new job :D

Kulta on February 7, 2013 at 2:17 am

Shit just got real

Damn it on February 7, 2013 at 9:25 am

oh no. i have a bad feeling about this

shalidar13 on February 7, 2013 at 2:17 pm

I would think it’s pretty simple – Joe is more or less currently defeated, without the previous external help, Victor would have taken his body by now. This breakout is his last ditch attempt at control, because if Joe has Annika to protect in the colony, he becomes the big hero and Victor would lose his power to Joe, lose the body – lose everything.

Chris on February 7, 2013 at 8:02 pm

Sounds awesome for you Joe best of luck, cant help but feel that this could be on the back burner for a while so I hope you continue, I have currently applied to do an animation course next year and it is interesting to see how well it can turn out with your comics.

Pauric on February 8, 2013 at 11:08 am

Gaddamit i give up they’re never going to meet.

Marduk on February 9, 2013 at 3:43 am

Well we are screwed ._.

Osun on February 9, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Poop…

FlashLite on February 10, 2013 at 8:53 am

Bring it on Inner Joe! Nice scene Joe.

Edward on February 10, 2013 at 1:21 pm

seems the coding for your website has made all the text go all jumbly… or is that just me?

Keir on February 12, 2013 at 5:24 am

HAPPY VALENTINES POCALYPSE! :)
Greetings to everyone and to JOE. :D

LOR on February 13, 2013 at 9:49 am

[Insert curse word here] Well, We’re screwed… Joe, How are you doing? And also, You should take a month long break for how many episodes you’ve made. Keep up the good work.
^_^

Hiei on February 14, 2013 at 3:53 am

I think Joe is taking tips from Andrew Hussie about waiting for EXCELLENT cliffhangers when he needs to take a break… Seriously, both decide (whether purposely or not) to take a week+ long pause at a VERY powerful cliffhanger…
Good Job!

NeoWarrior on February 16, 2013 at 10:27 pm

Or Neo it could be his new job lol CLIFFHANGER DUN DUN DAHHHHHH.

Will joe keep his job,will the viewers keep calm,will our younger viewers get this tv reference?

Stay tuned and found out next week!

Wayne Mangham on February 18, 2013 at 5:04 pm

On Total Drama Wait-A-Ton (TDW)

:P

NeoWarrior on February 18, 2013 at 6:04 pm

Just Saying, when is the next episode?

What the fuck happened, Joe? on February 20, 2013 at 9:16 am

1.WHO WE ARE?
2.JOES!
1.WHAT WE WANT TO MAKE?
2.MORE EPISODES!
1.WHERE WE WANT IT?
2.WHEN EVERYBODY DIES OF ANXIETY!

Drakhat on February 20, 2013 at 5:00 pm

@Joe I always wanted to ask (but it always skips out of my mind), is there any way to watch the scenes in an apple device?

Tio Ba on February 20, 2013 at 6:15 pm

Apple can’t do flash as asked above, but it could easily be screen videoed and put up on youtube for the non-flash user. I use a prog called Wink by Debugmode for windows.
From one flasher to another, love it! FryDro

FryDroTV on February 20, 2013 at 10:51 pm

D’oh! Victor, you need to calm down. If you keep breaking your cage… See this is why we can’t have nice things.

Dyl on February 22, 2013 at 12:35 pm

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! JOE, WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO US!?

Nickantor on February 22, 2013 at 8:29 pm

Okay, I’m over it.

Nickantor on February 22, 2013 at 8:30 pm

Man, you don’t upload something like the WHOLE fucking month!

Erik on February 23, 2013 at 6:29 pm

I guess this is the end of the comic!!
CAUSE THERE DOESNT SEEM TO BE ANY OTHER EPISODES COMING!!!!
Its a shame cause I actually enjoyed finding this comic and being told an awesome story!!!

Pauric on February 23, 2013 at 7:29 pm

Yeah… This comic has been on my bookmarks since the very beginnings and it is very sad to see it go so suddenly… I hope Joe has a good job though… /(;_;)\
Au Revoire, mon capitaine…

NeoWarrior on February 23, 2013 at 7:51 pm

To all the doubters and whiners i feel i should say,try having and GETTING a new job first,then having a gf or wife and a house and then a baby,and then after all that tell me if you have any spare time for your comic hobby?

Give Joe some slack and stop being impatient.

Wayne Mangham on February 23, 2013 at 8:45 pm

If this is truly the end… THANK YOU AUTHOR JOE!!! :-)

DramaNoMore on February 24, 2013 at 10:14 am

Keep cool. Maybe he’s just very busy. :)

By the way, it’s “au revoir”. ;)

Dairadh on February 24, 2013 at 10:22 am

It’s not the end. Read his twitter posts on the right. The computer he uses to make this comic crashed and is being fixed.

David on February 24, 2013 at 11:26 am

Come on guys, stay positive! He even said “This job will not affect The Pocalypse or Green Pixel but it will, obviously, take up my day time. I will continue working on scenes and Green Pixel games on nights and weekends :D” See, I even left the smiley face for good measure!

Bertucci on February 24, 2013 at 11:41 am

This isn’t the end, he’s not only moving but he also had to get his computer repaired, it says so on his facebook.

GM3RD00D3 on February 24, 2013 at 2:25 pm

his laptop is being repaired and his internet was out because he moved, its not the end of the comic.

mouseman on February 24, 2013 at 10:13 pm

We know it’s not the end, but really; 20 days without an update is too much Author Joe.

Lil'T on February 25, 2013 at 2:42 am

cant you read? Quote: “This job will not affect The Pocalypse or Green Pixel but it will, obviously, take up my day time. I will continue working on scenes and Green Pixel games on nights and weekends :D”

-.-

well im not amused about this long wait either but he just needs his time…

Jareth on February 25, 2013 at 9:09 am

i’m back and only returned to say:

OH MY GOG THIS IS TORTURE.
I CRAVE FOR UPDATES. I -NEED- THEM.
AUTHOR JOE PLEASE.

JT on February 25, 2013 at 1:12 pm

Jareth-> by your quote, Joe should’ve posted 2 scenes in the past 2 weeks since it’s been 2 weekends…

NeoWarrior on February 25, 2013 at 4:17 pm

All I have to say is ‘Oh shit…’

Ayshara on February 25, 2013 at 6:36 pm

please Joe don’t leave us like this, we just want another chapter or if you can please make a final scene, but don’t leave us hanging

Rhod on February 25, 2013 at 8:44 pm

@ Neo you need to learn to read then as it says “WORK ON SCENES ON WEEKENDS” aka he can only do so much on the weekend not the entire episode,seriously some of you guys need to get a life and some patients,he doesnt have to do anything,he doesnt even have to reply to you or make another scene,its his comic,his rules,his time,so get over it,sick of all this whining now.

Wayne Mangham on February 26, 2013 at 8:29 am

@Wayne- Fine, but filling this with blisters about the comments of others hardly works either. BTW: I think you meant patience not patients. We aren’t doctors to be having patients…

NeoWarrior on February 26, 2013 at 4:05 pm

Maybe we need some doctors in here to help the people suffering with “I cant wait-itus”

Wayne Mangham on February 27, 2013 at 11:28 am
