New Dad Over Here! | January 18, 2011

by Joe

So, I’m a father now! My son, Nathaniel Michio (his middle name), says hello and thank you for all the well-wishes! My wife and I also want to send you our sincerest thanks for all of your kind words and support. I have the best readers ever! :D

Obviously, life is going to switch gears a bit, but I’m going to try my best to keep The Pocalypse’s update schedule intact. I want to know what happens next just as much as you do (maybe more!) :D I also really want to complete the game because I’ve been playing early versions of it and I’m already having a lot of fun with it!

What else needs to be done? I’m going to make a list so that I know and you know what needs to be done around here:

– Add images and more descriptive text to the characters in the Wiki and remove the Crew page.
– Expand on our entry in TV Tropes (I could use your help on this one!).
– Get the game done and submit it to multiple game sites (that’s a big one!).
– Catch up on all the missed Forum activity.

Anything I forgot or anything else you’d like me to do? Let me know! :D

It looks like we have a tie right now between Jess and Terry on who’s going with Joe and Jake! I’ll leave voting open in the forums until 9PM EST, so please break the tie! If there’s still a tie when voting is closed, I’m going to post a very easy question in the “Party Time!” voting topic in the forums for forum members to answer. The first person to answer the question correctly gets to choose the third party member! So, I’ll only post the question if there is still a tie at 9PM EST.

Thanks again for everything! (Wow, 50+ comments!) :D

Enjoy Scene 18, “Zompire Versus… Puppies?”! (Yay! Scrufflebeck!)

Oh, and please continue to vote!

EDIT: We have a tie! The tie-breker question is in the forums here!

And try not to exhaust yourself out between baby and your projects. Take time out for yourself and your wife too!
Chores can always be done another day. :)

Hey Joe, welcome back!

I just showed my fiance your kid’s picture and she asked what you look like. Maybe you could add a pic into the
About section or something? Maybe even a family portrait? Just an idea, not trying to pry.
