New Game Keeping Me Busy! 06/04/2011

by Joe

Sorry I’m late! :D

The game that I’m working now is keeping me pretty busy, but it’s moving along much nicer and smoother than The Pocalypse Defense (second time is always easier than the first time, eh?)! As you know, it’s not going to be The Pocalypse-related, but we will be needing your help before we release to the big game portals! I’ll fill you in when our new platformer is ready :D

In other news, thanks to a commenter for a past scene (HMan!), I’ve just realized that an irrational fear that I’ve had for years has a name: trypophobia.

According to Urban Dictionary, “Trypophobia is an intense fear of the following things, which results in an all-over itchy feeling and general uneasiness. Lotus seed pods, Crumpets, Pumice, Cavities in teeth, the Ampullae of Lorenzini in Sharks, Holes in concrete, Bug tunnels in wood, Enlarged pores of the skin, Aero Bars, Holes in walls caused by bullets, Bone marrow, Wasps’ nest, Honeycomb, Bubbles in Dough, Ant holes, Veins in meat, Clusters of holes.”

I always get goosebumps when I see a cluster of small holes in nature, especially in human skin. It just creeps the hell out of me. If I see a zombie with disease-induced holes in its skin, I’ll be running from the holes, not the undead cannibal :D Anybody else have this phobia?

Enjoy Scene 3 – “Sleeping with Doc”!

Please continue to vote! :D Bug’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook (check out our paper doll pictures! Send me your own pics, too!), Twitter and RSS, too!

Have a great weekend!

Oh Doc :D

*catchy tune plays as Doc’s head dances while the screen flashes different colors in the background*

Yet another amazing installment.
Keep up the good work, Joe.

HykFlame on June 4, 2011 at 3:59 pm

I have trypophobia too! I just never knew what it was until now. Now I can finally explain myself to my friends when they ask me why spaz out near the patterns. Thanks Joe!

redsorcerer on June 4, 2011 at 4:32 pm

I was a little confused with tje title…

Joshua Owen Heath on June 4, 2011 at 4:39 pm

I don’t know why but when ever the doc talks, I always give him the voice of the Professor off of Futurama

Eastar on June 4, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Yup. Cricket.

Delta Pangaea on June 4, 2011 at 4:44 pm

@redsorcerer – Us trypophobes gotta stick together! One day we will bring down the small, clustered holes of this world :D
@Eastar – Haha! Prof. Farnsworth is an inspiration!
Delta Pangaea – The Noisy Cricket! I must admit that I enjoyed the first MiB. The second one… not so much :D

Joe on June 4, 2011 at 4:50 pm

lol i knew it the lfb is basically just like the little gun from men in black am i right?
it blew a hole in a transport truck and the lfb blew a zombie to…pieces?bits?cells?
well either way i say they same…and also true..she never said anything bout drilling>.>
lol Doc has messed up mind:P i wander if we will ever see him act sane

scavenger on June 4, 2011 at 4:54 pm

@Eastar – Me too! However in the last couple of scene’s his voice tends to shift between Professor Hubert J Farnsworth and Quagmire ;)

Smurf007 on June 4, 2011 at 6:01 pm

@scavenger yes but the docs gun doesn’t seem to have the recoil of the noisy cricket(name of the m.i.b gun if i remember right), remember in the movie j was sent into a car behind him when he fired it. and i just noticed joe’s comment confirming the name of the gun, in other news i want an armory full of docs weaponry(most of them seem damn fun to me)

nightarix on June 4, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Dude, we have the same exact thing.

I always get goosebumps when I see a lot of holes on something, after which I get more goosebumps when I see my goosebumps because they kind of look like holes.

Riou on June 4, 2011 at 6:31 pm

Do I get into the trypophobes club yet?

Riou on June 4, 2011 at 6:32 pm

Never call Doc’s inventions failures… Unless he invented the lasergun while researching for the fountain of youth.

Technically, rule one would be violated if he drilled the floor because he;d be less than 5 foot (under) from the boxes…

NeoWarrior on June 4, 2011 at 7:37 pm

@Neowarrior – what if he used a extended drill like this:


Nick on June 4, 2011 at 9:25 pm

But longer :)

Nick on June 4, 2011 at 9:26 pm

and yea Neo ur right he would come in the 5 feet of her box fortress.(a bit childiss right)
but is there a disease for being afraid for death u know that guy taht comes for u when u die.

jeftai on June 4, 2011 at 10:12 pm

I’m surprised the LFB even left a blood splatter.

PrincePlatypus on June 4, 2011 at 11:26 pm

how much for an LFB? :D

YoYoDude on June 4, 2011 at 11:38 pm

I want Doc’s gun now!

sykes on June 4, 2011 at 11:54 pm

@nick I may have the perfect drill.
it has a tele scope inside.

George lutech on June 5, 2011 at 1:52 am

The LFB is an improvement on the NC, because unlike the NC it does not have ridiculous recoil to match it’s ridiculous power.

Aethrys on June 5, 2011 at 1:53 am

The invetors mind is always working, hooray for engenuity

SpiritOfAdventure on June 5, 2011 at 2:11 am

OMG,I can’t believe,”Nobody is safe from LFB!”
I want one too!
One thing,why do we need a gun to help us in hot days,if someone spot Doc in a Summer day,that person would think that Doc wants to suicide…
Keep working!

Vasco Ji on June 5, 2011 at 4:11 am

I can’t wait for the next game!

HMan! on June 5, 2011 at 4:49 am

Though I’m not going to lie Joe. Putting out that first game was a genius way to spread The Pocalypse! I would never have known about this site if I didn’t play flash games in between classes

HMan! on June 5, 2011 at 4:56 am

I’ve gotto say this, i found this episode 5 hours ago and i watched the entire series UP TO HERE, from 5 hours ago to NOW. Its 4.35 in the morning, my head hurts, im screwed tommorow, but i loved this series

Draconium5 on June 5, 2011 at 5:21 am

That reminds me of something from Men in Black the Cricket Gun…
tiny gun.. big Splat.

What_Goes_Here on June 5, 2011 at 5:52 am

I have seen each and every one of your Updates! i found this comic by accident a week ago and it blew me away. If i had the money i would pay you to pop these out daily lol. I loved them all to death.

Jon on June 5, 2011 at 7:40 am

lol im very sad that imma have to wait a week now lol!

Jon on June 5, 2011 at 7:48 am

Jon-there is usually a update every 2 days or so..or if i am correct i think it was monday wensday and friday…dunno

scavenger on June 5, 2011 at 8:28 am

@scavenger, you are correct, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. (you spelled Wednesday wrong btw, think of it as wed-nes-day even though it’s pronounced wens-day)

lukesf on June 5, 2011 at 1:34 pm


really fucking angry man on June 5, 2011 at 2:02 pm

I lul’d so hard when the zombie ate it against the LFB.

Professor on June 5, 2011 at 4:02 pm

maybe Joe should think of a completely stupid collection of anti vampire weapons…i’m thinking like RPWS(rocket propelled wooden stakes)G³(garlic gatling gun)…and ask Doc to develop em,maybe even a sunlight lazer…

Dojel on June 5, 2011 at 10:17 pm

Angry dude pointing LFB at Iron Man’s head: DIE IRON MAN!
Iron Man: Haha you can’t kill me with that.
*five days later*
Weather Woman: BREAKING NEWS! We have spotted Iron Man’s head flying over the Arctic at 100 miles per hour, and it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna stop for another few years! There seems to be a huge dent in his head!

Nitromification on June 5, 2011 at 10:39 pm

wow doc awesome but what happened to the first shot why doesn’t explode? 4 of june was my birthday but i couldn’t say anything because I went out but there was no computer so continue doing the scenes and the games you ¡¡rock!! =D

oscar3000 on June 5, 2011 at 11:04 pm

reallyfuckingangryman@ you i have seen the entire thing in 2 days if we count the hours i seen the scenes there could be 1 day

oscar3000 on June 5, 2011 at 11:06 pm

@oscar3000 He toggled it for a “strong breeze”,XD!

Vasco Ji on June 6, 2011 at 4:25 am

macullen ps this is real name on June 6, 2011 at 4:53 pm

macullen ps this is real name on June 6, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Yell; “Mine!”
Blood spatter left.
Jaws drop down.
Eyebrows shoot up.
Think;”Holy CRAP!!!
Say; “I’ll never doubt your inventions again.”

[By the way, did anyone notice that the gun not only blew up the zombie that was running, but also the zombie shot by Jake?]

Musleblast the Ultimate Gamer on June 6, 2011 at 9:49 pm
