Annnd, We’re Back! | August 23, 2011

by Joe

Thanks for all the well-wishes, everyone! My vacation was great!

We drove down to Izu Peninsula, about a 2-hour drive from my place. Nothing recharges my batteries better than swimming in the ocean on a hot day and lying down on the beach under a parasol :D The drive around the peninsula was amazing, too. Driving through and around mountains made me pretend that I was Initial-D’ing down the mountainous roads of Japan in my little rented Toyota Corolla. Of course, with a baby in the car, I was pretending at a steady 30km/h ;) Maybe not as exciting as Initial D, but it was a blast :D Getting into a car and seeing the side-streets, where buses and trains can’t get to, also reminded me how much I love Japan. The sights and sounds that you experience when you’re away from tour groups and schedules are priceless and well worth the drive :D It’s gonna be tough to leave Japan, let me tell ya!

Anyways, thanks for your patience! I’m super glad to hear that many of you have missed the updates! I just want to let everyone know that The Pocalypse no longer has a set schedule, but more of a “target time”. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights, Eastern Standard Time, are what I aim for, but I may not make it sometimes. Sometimes it could be Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, sometimes Monday, Thursday, Sunday, but I definitely want to keep 3 updates a week going. Feel free to follow The Pocalypse to stay updated! :D

Enjoy Scene 5 – “Reclamation”!

Please continue to vote and get yourself a Cubert wallpaper! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

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

Give Scrufflebeck a good home by buying a Scrufflebeck keychain! They’re now available for CDN$10 in the store :D Thanks for your support!

Speaking of keychains, I doodled these little guys up and I’ll be making them into bead keychains soon! They’re all 16×16 and will be roughly the same size as the Scrufflebeck keychain. Let me know what you think! :D

Oh my!
And heres a fun thing ;D, Cladunx2 comes out at the end of august on the PSN, which is a fun retro-style game. So getting to my point ;D you get customization with the custom characters, and you could probrably make bernie, jess and joe characters :D
Just thought i’d throw it out for creator joe, and anybody else ;3

ryan’s right, there is blood, joe (both inner and outer) may have gotten seriously injured, maybe mortally. Author Joe, i both despise and admire you, for the GODDAMN cliffhanger, but as a writer, that’s just perfect story plot. HEY OTHER VIEWERS, we are at the climax of the chapter, hopefully A.J. will fill in on joe’s fate. thumbs up by me! XD

The way you just jump cut from the gunshot to the ending tile was intense. I have to admit that i’m disappointed in IJ for going into murder mode so quickly.

It’s interesting how just having a body changes a persons mindset. OJ became seemed to become much more focused and creative when cut off from the vices of the real world. While IJ seemed to lose the logical mindset he had in the Dream World. Both sides of Joe seem much better when disconnected from a body.

@red ja yeah, joe maybe a selfish jerk, but he’s the first main character, i’m just saying unless some mystic force comes in and intervene, joe is going to be incapacitated, last time he got shot (by jess from the first chapter), and it took him four days to recover. the story will either: continue to follow Joe such as for the first couple chapters and skip when he awakes; or follow the other characters which will have the days run slowly and take their time.

What the heck! Bernie shot him that much I know but…there was blood! Holy crap Joe is becoming more human since he was in struggle with the other half of him, so basically when those two fight there is a temporary part where he is not so super anymore. But Court I think Bernie shot out of reaction you know he wasn’t sure who was who after all, because other Joe was going to kill him and Bernie himself was torn.
