Land of the Setting Sun! :D | November 11, 2011

by Joe

Japan doesn’t observe Daylight Savings Time, so the sun sets at around 4:30 PM, here in my neck of the woods. If you’re a vampire, that may sound great, but if you’re a human who enjoys sunlight (or a plant), this may not sound like enough day. I agree, it sounds bad, but actually, it’s working out great for me! By the time it’s 5 PM, it’s so dark out that it feels like 8 PM. Feels like an extra 3 hours! :D

Oh, and Skyrim. Wow, reviews. The only Elder Scrolls I’ve ever played is 15 minutes of Oblivion, but Skyrim looks and sounds like a must-buy! But, with a wife and kid, The Pocalypse, creating game art, the occasional meal and sprinkles of sleep, I don’t know if I can fit Skyrim in, even with the “extra” 3 hours! Maybe I’ll wait for a price drop or even GOTY :D Ugh, and SWTOR is coming out soon. No mercy, man. No freakin’ mercy.

Enjoy Scene 36 – “Big Guy”!

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

Can I pitch this amazing game idea i’ve had. Yes, good. Basicaly it’s a massive AARPG or action adventure role playing game (but i’m sure you knew that). You can create a simple character at the beginning, e.g. name, hair style/colour, face, body type, traits, voice, gender, etc, etc… For the traits you could choose a species as well as special traits about you. The species would have different story lines for instance the vampire would be an outcast who doesn’t want to kill, the humanoid robot would be self aware and break out of factory production, etc. The whole game would, obviously be in your amazing art style (which reminds me of a great game called lock’s quest on ds) and would contain an enormous overworld and, apart from quests and the storyline would be a free roam game meaning you could ignore the storyline and just explore. Also mosts houses could be explorable and lootable even if some where just copied to save time. The fighting system could be realtime instead of battle system (So legend of zelda style not final fantasy style) to increase the speed of gameplay and keep the attention of the gamer.
There could be settlements and it would switch around so for if you where a human the vampire and robot settlements would be hostile and if vampire it would switch round, mabye there could be cameos from characters as well!
I also have an idea for the dream world. Each of your characters would be able to access the dreamworld for some reason or another (the robot you say?… Ghost in a shell. Nuff said) and you could buy a home in each settlment that would contain a bed/charging unit. The bed/charging unit could heal and mabye save but after that you would recieve the option to enter the dream world. In the dream world you could create things by ‘mind crafting’ (love that by the way) and save them but also you could enter a small allready crafted world and do certain things or make certain things to gain stats for your character. Well that’s pretty much my idea also it doesn’t even have to be in flash, I have a friend who has done programing for various game companys and is an exceptional programer and computist (is that a word?) who i’m sure would be happy to help and between us (and mabye your friends) could create a game engine for this. I could help too with art, (I have a small amount of experience in spriting but that was mainly 2d) storyline/ideas and mabye even a bit of programing (i’m just starting to learn it).
Obviously this is only a dream, but could we make dreams come true?
I would appreciate if you answered back even if it was to say that my idea was terrible and to never comment again… although I hope you don’t do that. I also appreciate that your time is very limited and you would not have time to do something like this.
Well I think that’s about it and keep up the amazing comic, (I love that it’s not a conventional comic) it’s currently my fav web comic and I can’t wait for more updates. I love the style, humour, characters and storyline. I love cross the most I think his character has the most unanswered questions and I love to guess.
Best wishes this christmas (what’s christmas like in Japan? I would so love to go there) Will.

Wow… Scrufflebeck just went from Delta to Alpha… And his antisocial attitude towards the doctor is just… precious!

Why is it even considered a comic? There’s nothing comical about it (not counting the funny stuff). It’s actually a flash animation video series, not a webcomic. Just saying. Back on topic now. How much ya wanna bet Scrufflebeck’s growl at the end was his version of “No way, I’m not allowing you to become a plagiarist or an identity thief of my actions. Especially since honesty is the best thing for a relationship!” XD

You know Doctor Nick seems to have cooled down on the idiocy gauge. I think ‘losing’ Joe hit him hard, perhaps he had been more guilty of the things he accused Jesse of? That and his failure to ‘save’ the one he put his hope into tore him apart.
Theory:
This mission isn’t about topping anything the other characters did, but instead about our colony’s doctor finding what he lost along the way when he failed Joe.

I love how the Scrufflebeck chat-avatar makes it looks like Doctor whats-his-name is pissing him off.

i still like to see scrufflebeck to have some personality, not just the “grr…”s, he’s remembered for the domesticated plant-dog creature with an awesome personality. Despite all the death in pocalypse, there has to be SOME kind of colorful minded animal. Come on joe, you should know that.
On a different note, of the history on machines (city), the only things that machines (and all other species) fear is Plant monsters. the humans have both, a plant (scrufflebeck) and a machine (Harry) to help fight the vampires. yay! What’s not to like?
Another note, i wonder if Author Joe would give the the pocalypse cast a new look or some kind of feel to the story, something new that’s all.
one more note, WHAT HAPPEN TO ANDY!!!! (and cross) they left traveling and haven’t been heard of since, come on!!
Anyways… thumbs up by me!! XD (like i always do)
