Testing, Testing, and Balancing 04/09/2011

by Joe

The Pocalypse Defense (yup, that’s what we’re calling it!) is almost done! We’re testing and balancing now :D We’re not 100% on how we’re going to distribute it, but we’re focusing on completing the game. It’s been a bigger project than we thought! Our next game will be much simpler :D

No launch date yet! (Because I don’t want to be a liar ;) )

Enjoy Scene 8 – “Unknown Hero”!

Please continue to vote! :D The Mystery Mutant’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

Have a great weekend!

Matthew on April 9, 2011 at 3:01 pm

mikelord356 on April 9, 2011 at 3:07 pm

I reckon this man is actually captain america; he just stole obi-wan’s cloak. woah too many references there lol…

MorganrBan on April 9, 2011 at 3:21 pm

awesome:D i was wondering when he would rear his mangy head again… =^_^=

Curator on April 9, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Yaaaay! Once again, I am reaffirmed in my belief that werewolves are infinitely more awesome than anything else and filled with the power of heroics.

Bonus points if they are also ninjas. Or druids. Or druid ninjas.

Delta Pangaea on April 9, 2011 at 3:46 pm

YAY! Greybane!!!!! =D

Overload on April 9, 2011 at 4:16 pm

wooooooooooo!! greybane’s in action

christian on April 9, 2011 at 5:07 pm

so the werewolf is back….. hes going to kill rusty say so if u agree (can i test the game PLZZ)

mutant hunter on April 9, 2011 at 5:13 pm

That guy is seriously BA! Although this is the first time i’ve heard of him ^^;. Still new so forgive me :P

I wonder though if Joe could beat greybane in a fight? >=)

Cori on April 9, 2011 at 6:37 pm

Yeahfor Werewolfs there are definitally the coolest creatures,much better then vampyres (and by large better then Sparklepyres if you kno what i mean)
Hope to see more wolf action. also wouldn’t mind if he would kill rusty.

Also now i wonder if werewolf’s in pokalypse are only half-transformed or do they have a full transformation (with a wolf head and all)? guess i have to wait and see.

Helhound on April 9, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Woo! Greybane saves the day. :)

I can’t wait for pocalypse defense to come out. :D
Maybe, you should look for a sponsor for distribution.

Ekeron on April 9, 2011 at 8:03 pm

wait a second, did we see this guy before? everybody seems to recognise him, they even call him greybane. can someone refresh my memory?

no name for you on April 9, 2011 at 8:27 pm

Short but epic as Nether :D

Anonymous_Jr on April 9, 2011 at 8:53 pm

*blinks* did…..wait that was Graybane!Who would of thought that the old man can move that fast….wish he let Rusty die though…*sees some looking at him* what I know some wanted him dead too! Plus we don’t know if hes fully a werewolf yet although Joe did sneeze when he was around the old man so it it is a possibility. Still though I am liking this more and more.

sykes on April 9, 2011 at 9:49 pm

I knew it, Greybane is a werewolf! Those claw slashes were obvious weren’t they?

Anon on April 9, 2011 at 10:27 pm

no name for you try looking for greybane in chapter 2 scene 9 first time he appears

mikelord356 on April 10, 2011 at 12:46 am

Grey Bane is a friggin’ Hippie-Ninja! Whoot!!!

Tekkenfreak4 on April 10, 2011 at 2:02 am

GreyBane rocks!!! i want to be him in your game.
so how thing going in japan, going to be coming over in a week.

oliver on April 10, 2011 at 3:03 am

@Anon – “Greybane” is sort of a dead giveaway. The only way that could be more obvious was if he was named fenris. And somebody mentioned something about wolves after seeing him, I think.

Aethrys on April 10, 2011 at 3:22 am

Totally excited for the game. Can’t WAIT to get my zombie butt kicking on.
Hey Joe? Can your next incentive be some kind of desktop background? Or at least something with dimensions that would work for that kind of thing? It’s just that I have a lot of pictures of awesome things scrolling through my background, and I feel that The Pocalypse deserves its proper place next to those things.

Willy on April 10, 2011 at 4:24 am

Hey Joe, have you ever played Metro 2033? I ask because it has a pretty neat storyline, survivors of a nuclear war living in the metro tunnels underneath moscow, using pre blast military grade rounds as currency, and fighting for survival against mutated creatures that control the surface, and the tunnels beyond the train stations. One of the most interesting things about it is that it’s adapted from a book, and you won’t forget that while playing because there are copies strewn liberally throughout the game, in a sort of self reference.

Aethrys on April 10, 2011 at 8:55 am

Plz don’t slow this down anymore, it has too much potential to go to waste :)

Kudos to all your work up to now, its stylish, funny, dramatic, mixture of everything and just where I like it between childish and adult, keep up the good work!!!

Bojan on April 10, 2011 at 10:13 am

Pocalypse Defense? Sounds good! I hope you have started testing it already! I don’t even need to mention the amount of players it’ll have when it comes out! :P

The Grey is the “three survivors and a jerk”‘s hero, huh? Hope he realizes who is most dangerous of the four and finishes him off soon…

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on April 10, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Ah, Greybane makes his triumphant return. Turns out werewolves are pretty powerful…

Chaotick on April 10, 2011 at 1:40 pm

Hurrah for Greybane

@Chaotick If werewolves weren’t powerful then vampires would have a advantage (which is something most would not like).

lukesf on April 10, 2011 at 4:07 pm

@noname We saw greybane once in a previous chapter for a small amount of time, and Joe sneezed and complained about dog allergies.

lukesf on April 10, 2011 at 4:11 pm

people who have been
reading
should get it free :P

hypnokrit on April 10, 2011 at 9:50 pm

When ever someone gets to be the major badass in the comic someone comes along and one-ups them every time, can’t wait to see more Greybane action

SpiritOfAdventure on April 11, 2011 at 12:41 am

Reading ‘The Pocalypse’ and watching ‘The Walking dead’ at the same time! Awesome sauce ;) I am obsessed with zombies… why? :L

Technolotips on April 11, 2011 at 6:18 am

@mikelord356 – I’ve heard of Dead Frontier, but haven’t gotten around to trying it :D
@MorganrBan – Haha, I think I was watching A New Hope when I designed him!
@Ekeron – Yes! We have considered finding a sponsor!
@oliver – Everything in Tokyo/Yokohama is pretty much back to normal :D Enjoy your trip!
@Aethrys – Thanks! I’ll check it out :D
@Bojan – Thanks for reading! Nope, I don’t plan on slowing down The Pocalypse!
@hypnokrit – The Pocalypse Defense is just a flash game, it’ll be free for everyone! :D

Joe on April 11, 2011 at 7:51 am

M.Joe..are you alright?,…I have heard of another earthquake there…

Rovage St Laurent on April 11, 2011 at 9:32 pm

Jordi on April 12, 2011 at 4:12 am

Ashendant on April 12, 2011 at 7:58 am

Rovage- another one? When was this?! Seems Japan is one of poor living conditions…

NeoPhantom, Mirage Warrior of the Netherlands on April 12, 2011 at 8:52 am

@Rovage St Laurent – I didn’t even know there was an earthquake! I had to check the news after I read your comment :D Thanks for your concern!
@Jordi & Ashendant – No release date yet! Please bear with us as we wrap things up! :D

Joe on April 12, 2011 at 8:59 am
