Ludum Dare 25! 12/13/2012

by Joe

Rich and I are spending this weekend participating in the Ludum Dare 25 Jam! :D We’ll have 72 hours to make a game from scratch! Yes, yes, this is taking time away from The Pocalypse-related stuff but it’s a short, weekend-long challenge that lets us look at something different and shows us what we can come up with in such a tiny amount of time (unless the theme ends up being Post-Apocalyptic Mutant Vampire Zombies – then we have to do something The Pocalypse-releated ;D). I’m sure it’ll be a sleepless weekend filled with coffee and pizza and I look forward to it! :D I’ll keep you all updated on Twitter and Facebook on how we’re doing and what we’re coming up with!

Also, check out the next TPD2 enemy group: VAMPIRES!

Let me know what you think and if you want to join this crazy world as an NPC sprite, I’m still taking more people! :D Please check out the store for more details!

Enjoy Scene 9 – “Off We Go”!

Vote to see the plant monsters that you’ll be facing in TPD2 (before I post them next update)! Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! Thank you for voting!

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

Shit son

Awesome ! New Hammerston gets strong allies.

SilverMaxy on December 13, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Ah, Joe the spastic, over-protective older brother finally shows his true colors! We knew he could do it!

Excellent comic! I’ve been reading through the archives over the past few days and I’m really enjoying it. I love the format and the story is wonderful. I can’t wait to see where it goes!

Zidane…Rob…Samuel…Mutant…Likes! XD

ZidaneRobbie on December 13, 2012 at 2:23 pm

I wish I could donate by phone, that would be cool. :)

ZidaneRobbie on December 13, 2012 at 2:33 pm

@Someone – Haha! :D
@Jeran – Thank you for reading! :D
@ZidaneRobbie – Sorry that PayPal can’t accomodate that! :(

Joe on December 13, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Thought you were going to put elders in the game, that would be great!

Tesh on December 13, 2012 at 3:17 pm

@Tesh – Elders have reserved Boss status! :D

Joe on December 13, 2012 at 4:03 pm

@ Zidane – I thought u could use paypal or something similar via phone,u can with ebay i think unless im thinking of something else?

Wayne Mangham on December 13, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Also doc says “being” instead of “beings” somewhere in the comic but i cant remember where lol

Wayne Mangham on December 13, 2012 at 5:36 pm

@ Wayne Mangham – Found it! Thanks for the catch! :D

Joe on December 13, 2012 at 5:44 pm

dumbass joe is dumb… im not talking about you author joe, you’re a genious! :)

Rasmus Nielsen on December 13, 2012 at 6:43 pm

Figures Aaron would pick NOW to mention Annika to Joe… Couldn’t he have done so BEFORE he lost his memories?

NeoWarrior on December 13, 2012 at 7:49 pm

How about vampire gang enemy’s, like the brown coats. I like the idea of young vampire street crime. Thanks for the new comic, great stuff Joe!

SnowRyder on December 14, 2012 at 5:33 am

Don’t blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink. Good Luck.

TheDoctor on December 14, 2012 at 8:21 am

Always nice to log on and find a new The Pocalypse :)

Things should get interesting now that Joe has someone to fuss over. More reasons for Joe to do something stupid? Brilliant!

AwesomeFerret on December 14, 2012 at 8:39 am

Probably a bad time to mention I met a girl named Annika, too…

robert on December 14, 2012 at 9:03 am

@ robert – I have a message from joe “FUS-RO-DAH!”

Wayne Mangham on December 14, 2012 at 9:55 am

“It feels like we have been here for months” Ohohoho I see what you did there. Probably because I used the same joke before in one of my early comics. Cheap joke but works when the viewer is aware of the time difference. :)

Otter on December 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

@Otter and what comic would this be?

JustLaxin on December 14, 2012 at 7:01 pm

@Joe I have a question that was touched on, but never really explained. In Ch7/S21, Rosa’s eyes are white with black pupils. When we next see her in Ch7/S23, they are black with red pupils, similar to Victor. You never really gave an explanation. Why did they change?

Pseudonym_ on December 16, 2012 at 2:35 pm

@ Pseudonym – Erm maybe because he forgot? Seriously dont read too much into it,hes human after all everybody makes mistakes…

Wayne Mangham on December 18, 2012 at 10:00 am

@Wayne How do we know he’s human? For all we know he is a machine from the future sent/reprogrammed by Bernie to warn us of the Pocalypse happening.

Pseudonym_ on December 18, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Oooh this might not turn out well. And by the way, I would LOVE to have myself in your game, but I honestly am unable to donate or anything like that.

illeatyourself on December 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

RARG!!! I LOVE the game you made for LD Joe, but it is too hard! Every time I get one tree or car away from victory, an enemy hits me and I can’t move fast enough! This has happened about 17 times now!

Pseudonym_ on December 18, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Not bad of a game you guys did for the Ludum Dare ! You guys got great skills !
I am definitly looking forward to Pocalypse Defense II !

upiru on December 19, 2012 at 6:54 am

Where to download said game from Ludum Dare???

Wayne Mangham on December 20, 2012 at 10:04 am

Poor Harry, guess Rosa’s zompire gene got the best of him or she bit him too long.
