Funnest Part of Game Development! | October 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

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.

Well, ok… CUBERT IS TALKING ! OMG !

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…

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.

@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.

… 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.

@ 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.

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.

Joe used Cubert as a body because his current body is being inhabitied by Sam.

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’…?

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

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.

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.

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.

@Dairadh
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 ; 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 !

Okay… so I killed a whole night watching everything up to now…
I LOVE THIS COMIC!
*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…

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
