No Zooming! :D | May 23, 2012

by Joe

I’ve received a few messages regarding quality issues for the scenes. Thanks to BloodWolf7 and his screenshots, I’ve figured out the problem :D

Do your scenes look like this?

Don't zoom!
Don't zoom!

If so, go to your browser’s menu bar, go to View (or similar) and find Zoom. Reset your browser’s zoom or set it to 100%. That should fix the quality problem. As you know, pixel art doesn’t scale well in small increments :D

Did you spread The Pocalypse Defense 2 campaign today? Please do! Let’s make it happen! :D

I keep on remembering both of them and think, ‘they’ve been asleep for about 6 seasons so far’.

@Solidman I think of a new chapter less as a continuation of the story, and more as a gondola leading up the cliff.

Terry was Jess’s old BF. When they went on a mission with Joe and Bernie, the Elder attacked Terry and almost died. He only lived because Jess kept him alive with Sentinel’s life support long enough to get him back to the colony’s hospital.

sigh of course we finally get to find out a bunch about Joe and they give us a tiny bit about the person everyone wants to forget-Rusty, although I’m glad Terry is back I am still wondering about Greg, (or I think his name was Greg) speaking of which hey Joe do you believe in god?

When he sits up on the bed, his graphic shows his Right arm is injured, yet hit pixel body shows his left arm is injured.

Wait I thought Terry was dead? If he’s alive, then this deserves a nice big YAY!!! :D I don’t know why, but everybody seems to love Terry, and I seem to be one of them! I must admit, he looks a lot older now, whether it’s because his glasses aren’t on or because his graphic is different and was made long after the original graphic (I SWEAR his hair was longer than that), but he looks more mature now. I think I liked his original look, because it made him look like a young sacrificial hero. Everybody loves a young sacrificial hero.

On another note, Jake is in for a HUGE surprise soon! XD And now that I think about it, if Terry was thought to be dead, WHY DIDN’T THEY BURY HIM OR HAVE SOME SORT OF FUNERAL YET!? Lastly, how much do you wanna bet Rusty will demand a crossbow so much he will eventually become a sort of pseudo-Hawkeye? If you don’t know who Hawkeye is, he’s the Avenger that is almost exactly like Green Arrow in trademark abilities.

I TOTALLLY forgot about Terry!!!
I wonder if anyone remembered him before this scene… I wonder if Joe(author) went looking at previous scenes to see what to make next and found out he had a wounded character that he forgot… :p

..am I the only one who cares about Rusty?
I wish I was as skilled as him with the crossbow.

Anyway.

TERRY! YOU’VE BEEN NEARLY-DEAD FOR 6 SEASONS! IF YOU ARE INFECTED I WILL KILL YOU MYSELF.

He can’t be infected. He would’ve turned by now if he was.

Joe! If possible you should go back to the original Pocalypse Defense on Kongregate (and other sites if possible) and edit the information to say you’re making a sequel, and link to the indiegogo page. It might help.

I’ve made a post in the comments section of the game with the URL in it.

http://www.kongregate.com/games/GreenPixel/the-pocalypse-defense

Anyone who has a kongregate account should plus the comment to make sure people can see it. Anyone who doesn’t should make one, rate the game 5 stars, and then plus the comment. (The 5 star rating is probably a drop in the bucket at this point, but it might help. Who knows?)

Unfortunately, the comments don’t link things apparently… But it’s better than nothing.
