Green Pixel is Blogging! | December 5, 2011

by Joe

As we excitedly work during Block Hopper’s crunch time, our beloved programmer, Rich (@hushlorentz) has decided to keep everyone up-to-date by blogging his daily achievements! Check it out at http://greenpixel.ca/blog/, especially if you’re an aspiring game developer, like us :D I will also post any art-related tutorials and things that I learn during the course of making our games. Feel free to comment anything that may help us, as I believe that making games is a community-driven effort :D

With Block Hopper finishing up, I am also finishing up our next game’s design document! It will be The Pocalypse’s second game and if Rich gives it a green light, we’ll be working on it soon! You can stay updated by following @GreenPixelDev on Twitter, checking out the Green Pixel Development Blog, and/or right here on The Pocalypse! :D

Enjoy Scene 44 – “Link Severed”!

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!

Hm… Sam’s original body is gonna get killed. But judging on what Dominik did, Inner Joe is going to be mad…
Now I think Jess will smack Joe upside down for not stopping Dominik.

@Alex I’m sure Graymane just lifted a leg and peeded on the Console.

Sam is not evil, nor are the machines. They’re sterile and detached. The only two evil races so far are Humans and Vampires. The Vampires revel in the pain and anguish that they cause. Sam is probably driven by the need to walk the earth again but want’s a body as perfect as his mind so he doesn’t have to worry about death again. Oddly enough, it looks like neither he nor the machines have “killed” any one. They’re just waiting for new body so they can all share in the “perfection”.

That being said, maybe it’s because he was giving us so much personal backstory, but I really didn’t see this turn with the machines coming.

@raziel i think humans are more or less neutral as a group, machines are lawful neutral(as they seem to have rules and protocols) btw the brains in the jar are only ones SAM has found to possess a strong mind, odds are he kills anyone he deems too weak for his goal(remember this guy trained the vampires, and was betrayed by vamps, hes not likely to keep around those that he doesn’t feel are important).
i wonder if Jess and Bernies dad is in one of those jars?

Wow, That was tense. And a lot of threads coming together at once. Really good writing.

@Night I meant that humans and vamps are the only ones shown thus far to be capable of “Evil”. I’m sure there are some somewhat decent vamps in the world too. Also I don’t think Sam would reduce such a great mind as Bernie Sr’s into a jar. He would at least give him a command position or make him a body/suit worthy of him that would put Arbiter to shame.

for the question of: ‘is Sam evil?’
the answer is: ‘why Sam seeks perfection.’
revenge – evil; love/justice – good; love/revenge – evil (lawful?); justice/revenge – evil (chaotic); moving on – (lawful); just to have a body that he can enjoy life in – (chaotic/lawful);
Remember Sam enjoys pleasant interactions with civil rules. He dislikes separation from those he cares for (death).

@Raziel Star’s Second Comment
If Bernard Sr. was turned in a brain,probably he’s contained in Obliteration’s body.

Joe,I thank you for posting the progress on Block Hopper,because I want to be a game programmer also. Though,I’m going for Art School because my father will teach me how to program. :D

I had a hunch that brain in the middle was Sam. Creeeeepy.

So from what I can infer:
1. Sam is the big brain in the machine city
2. Some how same and other Joe came in contact with each other mentally or physically in some way
3. Joe is okay…or so we hope.
4. Other Joe is trapped now.
5. Dominic may or may not be dead or at least brain dead.

6.AUTHOR JOE YOU NEED TO POST MORE POCALYPSE!!!!

That is all.

Everyone in that scene sure was spending a lot of time talking to outer Joe and ignoring inner Joe despite the former being unconscious and the latter screaming about killing everybody…

great… Sam forced Greybane to come. and save his brain… Sam probably will live inside Greybane for a while, just like Dark has been living since the beginning till he took over Joe’s body… Also, it seems that Dark might’ve perished inside Sam’s crumbling mind, as he had no way to escape the mind-cage Dominik created…

I’ll just leave this here re Sam:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
C. S. Lewis
