Robots Are Fun :D 03/23/2012

by Joe

Working on more TPD2 stuff, I wanted to post some of the robots that will end up in the game :D How do they look?

TPD2 - Some robots!

Robots are way more fun to “draw” than humans (feels weird calling pixel art “drawing”)! Reminds me of my childhood, drawing Gundam robots and my own Megaman renditions (Megaman Z, haha). When I’m back in Canada, I’ll dig up my old drawings, scan them, and post them if I have the courage to :D

Keep the TPD2 suggestions and ideas coming! I greatly appreciate them! Feel free to join the brainstorming and discussion in this forum thread! :D

Enjoy Scene 26 – “Take Me With You”!

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

Check out Green Pixel’s first iOS game: BlockHopper! http://blockhopper.greenpixel.ca/ Thank you for your support and have fun running, hopping, and thinking your way to the Goal! Make your own levels, too! :D The FREE Lite version is also out! Get it here!

I’m still waitin’ for the time Joe will do something for the good of mankind, and not for himself.

now that i fulfilled my dream to make the first comment i want to say that the scene is great as always but why dont you use the animations of the robots from TPD1?
btw sorry for my bad english

I retire what I said in my previous statement.
Roth,the ‘Ass’ title is still yours!

Happy Vampire on March 23, 2012 at 2:22 am

Sam I think you’ll be wating a looooooong time for that. Joe is not a “good of mankind” or even a “good of others” kind of person

Jermell on March 23, 2012 at 4:51 am

Those robots look sick and I think Roth is gonna die out there :P

zach on March 23, 2012 at 5:01 am

‘swrong wichoo, GreyBane? You know perfectly well that Roth is gunna die, foo’. And I bet that youre gunna kill ‘im too! GreyBane: WHY YOU NO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS??!

Joshua Owen Heath on March 23, 2012 at 5:22 am

Honestly I disagree with everyone that says Joe should be selfless instead of selfish. But then again I replaced my morales and ‘Good Vs. Evil’ with ‘losses and Gains’, and I have a rule to follow that up “Maximum gains, minimum losses”. And by gains and losses I mean ‘gain benefit’ and ‘lose benefit’ or more simply described as being selfish and wanting whatever I feel like is best for myself. So I can’t just simply disregard what I do and call others selfish, Joe is doing what he feels is best for himself(even though his knowledge and information is severely limited).

Myself above others, even if it means pretending to be what ‘they’ want.

It’s interesting to see Dr Nick still feel like he’s caged and useless. In the end, his “trip” resulted in only making him want more. He doesn’t think people accept him because he doesn’t accept himself. Thus all the wannabe hero stuff and putting himself in danger.


Yinello on March 23, 2012 at 6:22 am

Joe I think it sould be “I want to get out of this place!” instead of “I want out of this place!”, maybe is not the right correction but “I want out” just sound wrong.

Luxeraph on March 23, 2012 at 7:58 am

Some people do say “Want out” regardless.

I like the robots, you should probably modernize some of your old designs into Pocalypse style too, I think it would be cool

Cazaki on March 23, 2012 at 9:31 am

@Roger & Cazaki – Actually, these robots belong to the humans! The enemy machines will stay the same :D

Joe on March 23, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Bet that the two human machines are actually the civillians that “mysteriously disappeared while staying near Doc’s house”.

Happy Vampire on March 23, 2012 at 10:56 pm

@ Roger: You have still yet to acomplish your dream. Mabey next time.

Anyway Greybane knows he could just show that brain to Doc and he would be all ears, but he decided to take Roth anyway. What a nice guy.

blinx92 on March 24, 2012 at 1:13 am

Okaaay so… Let me get this straight: You’re getting Joe, Bernie, Jess, Rosa, Harry and Scrufflebeck in one room with an army of machines. Also, Nick, Greybane, Doc, Andrius and Cross are meeting… Huh. *deep breath* EPIC SCENES INCOMING! *stays glued to the computer for the next three months*

LucarioGuy15 on March 24, 2012 at 4:21 am

YES! Finally some action is coming!

Brenkie on March 24, 2012 at 5:17 am

I do like the robot designs actually!

illeatyourself on March 24, 2012 at 7:12 am

Huh. So nick or whatever his name was is going out in the field again. That won’t be a good sign. Not unless he can somehow get out there without breaking any rules, aka by getting permission. His reasoning is good though, so I don’t really see why they wouldn’t let him go after such a reason. After all, the best doctors can also work the fastest, and thus would be able to heal the wounded before they die, whereas they might otherwise die if a different doctor was there who couldn’t work fast enough or didn’t know the right things. On a different note, I find myself what will happen with Joe. I am guessing he will probably end up having Scrufflebeck be more of an escort, making sure he doesn’t die while he tries to get to the elder. I can see him talking more with Bernie about the whole Rosa misunderstanding. And I can see him and Bernie meeting up with Greybane, Nick, The Elder, and Doc during this mission. Let’s see how much I get right.

illeatyourself on March 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

He’s ready to totally stab everyone in the back for his powers.

You know, there’s so much that is going to go wrong with this mission that it just might go right. Though, I do hope it ends with Joe in a Machine test-tube.

Locke on March 24, 2012 at 6:30 pm

You know, if Joe were just a little better at diplomacy he may get Elder Dom’s help w/o pissing off Bernie and the gang.
Or, if he gets mad the Dom for something right after/as he regains his power, Bernie could be ok with that too.
…Provided Arbiter gets the last shot.
Anyone else see this becoming an epic fail?

sh4d0wfl4re on March 25, 2012 at 2:50 am

Why do I get this innane feeling that when the team(s) depart, Joe will close the curtains of this chapter and leave us in suspense?

NeoWarrior on March 25, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Nick is going to get himself killed out there. The only reason he might survive is with greybane. As for Joe I expect this of him being sad after being rejected and jumping at the chance to get his powers back.

Zero on March 25, 2012 at 3:13 pm

I wish you hadn’t shown us the robots, they should have been a really cool suprise

Not going to say on March 26, 2012 at 2:27 am

In the scene where Joe says to get the next Full House DVD, I believe it should say I’m done with this one not done this one. Just thought I’d point that out. :)

EnglishMajor(ish) on March 26, 2012 at 11:07 am

Not going to say- I´ll have to agree with Mr. No Name…
