Funnest Part of Game Development! 10/26/2011

by Joe

Writing the design document for Green Pixel’s next game! I always thought that this was the most enjoyable part of the development process. Making the art is fun too, of course, but putting the entire game down on paper and imagining it coming to life in your head is such a productive way to visualize the future finished product :D

Yes, it will be The Pocalypse-themed and we will be revisiting a previous concept (wink wink). Can’t wait to run my ideas past @hushlorentz and get started! But, first, let’s finish BlockHopper! Coming to Flash and iOS soon! :D :D

Enjoy Scene 30 – “Living Mind”!

Please continue to vote and check out the new Scrufflebeck’s sketch! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

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

Keep playing BlockHopper beta and please keep sending us feedback! Thanks for playing! :D

Living mind ?

This better be good.

Razorhead on October 26, 2011 at 2:25 am

I wonder if I’m the first one to post, this time. :o It would be “funny”, haha, cause I didn’t intend to. Just curious about the title. “living mind”. Mh.

Dairadh on October 26, 2011 at 2:27 am


So “Sam” is some sort of etheral creature ? I don’t quite understand why he claims that the body belongs to him, since he admits that he’s not born in it. Mh…

Dairadh on October 26, 2011 at 2:30 am

Wooow very interesting turn of events again.I would very much like to know much more about Sam in the next episode make it like a interrogation where Jess asks the questions and Sam answers them.Oh and Ooly shit Cubert talked.

Dagzter on October 26, 2011 at 2:38 am

@Dairadh, dude posting before watching the video……that’s low. Anyways. CUBERT TALKED! WHAT.THE.HELL. Also I like where this Joe/InnerJoe/Sam/Elvis(Wat?) story arc is going. Please dont alter course author Joe. And if the doctor could have a little “accident” lets just say you will not go hungry. But dont hurt Doc, I can’t function without measured doses of his craziness and snazzy 3d glasses.

bobsickle on October 26, 2011 at 2:43 am

… seems like that’s either Joe or Inner Joe, or Cubert was given a mind by Joe.
Possibility: Joe is trapped with Inner Joe, and they are separated somehow.
Possibility 2: Cubert had grown up because he was left in the colorful mental world.

Shade Person on October 26, 2011 at 3:07 am

@ Bobsickle ; What is low is considering that posting first is important enough to call someone “low” just because he didn’t watch the video and posted a comment without thinking. :/ There’s no prize, you know.
I wonder… maybe the Cubert we’re seeing is… Joe ? Ô_o That would explain his way of talking.

Dairadh on October 26, 2011 at 3:13 am

OMG, it’s Joe trapped in cubert form

Rikion on October 26, 2011 at 3:31 am

whooo cubert is back

raikue on October 26, 2011 at 3:42 am

This scene reminds me of CAVE STORY, where BALROG just breaks through the roof.

LegendaryAsshole on October 26, 2011 at 3:47 am

Joe must be Cubert! :O

@Bobsickl: The post is completely harmless, relax. Jeez, lol. xD

Tara on October 26, 2011 at 3:49 am

Maybe the Joe that we know is the Cubert of Sam’s Mind. Now the question is where does Inner Joe fit in? Perhaps this being has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Who knows? This is by far the most interesting story at the moment, in my humble opinion.

Sophie on October 26, 2011 at 4:05 am

I loved the end.

Nick on October 26, 2011 at 4:07 am

ARGHHH! What the FUCK is going on here?!

Nick on October 26, 2011 at 4:08 am


Yinello on October 26, 2011 at 4:35 am

Cubert and Joe switched places!!!!! That’s why Sam is so sophisticated!!!!!

NeoWarrior on October 26, 2011 at 5:01 am

I HAVE THIS FIGURED OUT! Sam is the Vampire Elder’s Name who promised to save Joe from Joe, So By the elder taking over the body, Joe was forced into Cubert’s Body :D

Anonymous_Jr on October 26, 2011 at 5:14 am

I know whats going on that is the first non vampire to be able to enter the dream world and it turns out joe lost his memory and he is the only one who can help and or save mankind am i right.

Christian on October 26, 2011 at 5:24 am

i believe it is joe trapped in cuberts form like rikian said

serpentinepattern! on October 26, 2011 at 6:14 am

Cubert summed up my reaction.

Gah! on October 26, 2011 at 6:41 am

oh dear…

Rasmus on October 26, 2011 at 6:42 am

ok i get it
Joe used Cubert as a body because his current body is being inhabitied by Sam.

Evan Lea on October 26, 2011 at 6:58 am

ARG what is going on here!?
Interesting, Cubert just burst through the roof onto the table, NOW WOOP HIS ASS CUBERT@!

lurker on October 26, 2011 at 7:15 am

Well, Joe did put a bit of his mind into making Cubert…. And Sam does seem to have upgraded the thought processes a bit…. So… Cubert is a functioning part of outer joe’s ‘mind’…?

sh4d0wfl4re on October 26, 2011 at 7:26 am

I agree with those that think that when Sam entered Joe’s Body, Joe went into Cubert because he needed a body to survive. Dark and Normal Joe may have fused into 1 person, or maybe Dark Joe didnt make it, and is now drifting bodylessly around the dream world. Serves him right XD

Leviticus on October 26, 2011 at 7:39 am

Dude, this is an awesome comic. I can honestly say that I can’t wait for the next one! Especially since I also don’t understand what’s going on with Joe right now. What he says is making almost, ALMOST, no sense to me.

illeatyourself on October 26, 2011 at 7:45 am


illeatyourself on October 26, 2011 at 7:45 am

About the theory saying that Joe was forced to retreat inside Cubert because of Sam controlling the main body… when BadJoe was in control of the body, Joe didn’t need to hide inside of Cubert, he had a “dream body” of his own. I don’t think the situation is different, that’s why I’m confused… why would Joe need to use Cubert’s body (if it’s Joe… it could be just Cubert after all) ? I’m pretty sure Sam forced Joe to adopt this body.

Dairadh on October 26, 2011 at 8:19 am

Oh my god… It’s Joe. As Cubert… AUGH MIND BLOWN.

Zayne11 on October 26, 2011 at 9:24 am

oh a Psionic Horror cool

Ashendant on October 26, 2011 at 9:33 am

my guess is that Joe is trap on Cubbert badJoe was just a alter ago of Sam and Sam is cotroling the play now and he look cool

Dranlord on October 26, 2011 at 10:12 am

It’s obvious, isn’t it? The “bastards” he refers to are some entity (probably vampires) that set him up with this body as a host. They promised him that the body was not inhabited by a mind, so it would belong entirely to him.

Of course, not only are there not zero minds in that body, there are now three.

Psychapprentice on October 26, 2011 at 10:36 am

did anyone else just stop and say OMG as soon as Cubert came along and TALKED?!?!?

Alex apocalypse on October 26, 2011 at 10:44 am

@dairadh sam is useing joes dream body right now thats why it could be joe in cubert

red ja on October 26, 2011 at 10:53 am


Delta-Pangaea on October 26, 2011 at 1:27 pm

@Delta-Pangaea – Lol, I was about to write that!

DramaNoMore on October 26, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Next episode
Joe: Origin

Geoff on October 26, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Cubert transformed into Joe. And Cubert is NOT happy. *CUBEPUNCH!*

Happy Vampire on October 26, 2011 at 2:37 pm

I think that Joe didn’t need a new body because Dark Joe was still a part of him. But now that Samuel,a completely different being,entered the body,Joe needed a body. Dark Joe and Joe raced to Cubert,Joe kicked him in the lower parts ( that’s Joe style. ) and entered Cubert. And now Cubert is angry. *CUBEPUNCH!*

Happy Vampire on October 26, 2011 at 2:42 pm

@Dairadh WTH i thought u were also first to comment since when i posted my comment like 10 minutes earlier it still hadnt loaded Razorhead’s comment

Dagzter on October 26, 2011 at 4:00 pm

OMG! cubert talked

KJ on October 26, 2011 at 4:18 pm

@Happy Vampire ; Ooooh, your idea is interesting… if Sam is completely different from Joe, a whole other person, yes, it makes sens. :O
But what RedJa said is not bad either. Sam use the dream body of Joe right now, so Joe has to use another one (Cubert).
Both theories seem valid for me and, in the end, they are the same idea : Joe can’t use his usual body.
@Dagzter ; Lol yes, I’m surprised too. The comment took its time to appear. x) Thanks to that… Razorhead is the low one ! ;p Mwahaha !

Dairadh on October 26, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Okay… so I killed a whole night watching everything up to now…
*bookmarked it*
The idea to throw many things together for the ultimate apocalypse, or pocalypse in this case, is refreshing, funny, and scary at the same time.
And now a living mind… *sinister plotting*
Oh dear…

BlackBirdAolen on October 26, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Ehhh…? wait wut?

frida on October 26, 2011 at 7:53 pm


earl pineda on October 26, 2011 at 10:02 pm


Liro Raeriyo on October 26, 2011 at 10:14 pm


Joe needs some help… Too many minds claimig his body as theirs… I think a little white room when he could discuss with them would be useful XD

Blues on October 26, 2011 at 11:13 pm

i have also forgoten about when the elder put both joes in the same space there were two joes literally i mean two bodys you know dream bodys but its starting to get confusing

red ja on October 26, 2011 at 11:31 pm

so there is Sam, Joe, and Evil Joe now. next your going to tell us he is a cylon aren’t you.

matt on October 26, 2011 at 11:42 pm

HA I KNEW IT! When Andy (I guess it was him) said that if you stay too long in this realm your body would be destroyed I knew that that’s what could have happened to Sam, that would explain why Joe had something inside him. Probably Sam made a pact with the Elders a long time ago, probably they offered a new body to Sam. Well, only author Joe can confirm our theories, and the plot gets more and more interesting :D

Vitor on October 26, 2011 at 11:50 pm

cubert to the rescue-be!!

Barbaric Bob on October 26, 2011 at 11:52 pm

Bwahahaha, fucking hysterical. Joe/Cubert yet lives!

Richard on October 27, 2011 at 8:50 am

no its not cubert, its the fake cubert that joe created in minecraft world.

d-man on October 27, 2011 at 9:35 am

woops, sory, messed up fake joe and cubert… sory…
but still, is that cubert or joe? i mean, cubert doesnt talk

d-man on October 27, 2011 at 9:38 am

So.. I just started watching this 4 days ago.. And I caught up with in my own time, and I love it. I would elaborately detail on that even more, but I have things to derp about.

Calicade on October 27, 2011 at 9:52 am

So Cubert was drunk at OJ’s Dream World Bar,met a nice girl,got laid,and Joe took over the next morning.Thats what I think

Edward on October 27, 2011 at 10:16 am

its not cuburt its joe duh he can only make cubes so then he made himself that to be able to talk to them

aaron on October 27, 2011 at 12:01 pm

I’m gone for little over a month and a new game is under way, Joe gets “killed” and turns out to have something similar to the zombie virus but now it looks like he’s some kind of entity, the Elder infects people and now has Doc hostage, Nick goes off on his loony mission, there were three votes, Scrufflebeck almost dies and then turns into some lion thing, there are vampires that seem to want to destroy the old order, a new character is introduced, and I missed the one year anniversary…I’ve missed this comic so much thanks for continuing it for so long Joe keep up the good work

SpiritOfAdventure on October 27, 2011 at 2:00 pm

RETURN OF THE CUBERT, which now houses original joes mind, im gonna guess

YoYoDude on October 27, 2011 at 8:18 pm

Joe took over Cubert’s body from rage and now wants to get his own back. Tadaa. Also, this could be the so-called payment for the elder.
