The Pocalypse on Minecraft! And, Need a Name Again! 06/16/2020

by Joe

You guys helped name Noah so I think I’ll leave it to you to name the new machine that Phillip has quickly warmed up to (though I guess being given a weapon of mass destruction will do that?) :D Leave your suggestions in the comments then I’ll choose my favourite 3 or 4 and put up a Strawpoll link on here, Twitter, Reddit, and Facebook. Looking forward to your ideas!

EDIT: Thank you for the name suggestions for the machine “leader”, everyone! I picked the three that I thought would best fit the current and future narrative :D Cast your vote and we’ll likely see the result in the next scene!

I announced this last week on social media but if you didn’t see it, we have some The Pocalypse skins published in the Minecraft Marketplace! Last week was The Pocalypse Heroes and this week, The Pocalypse Villians is now up :D I’d love to see them in action so send me screenshots if you grab the skins. Happy Minecrafting!

Enjoy Scene 4 – “New Home”!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates!

You can also support The Pocalypse by being a Patreon Patron! Thank you! :D

A new unit? Gee Phillip why do they let you get so 2 units?

This seems like an interface for communication, and not a touchscreen with nuclear launch codes, so perhaps it would provide Phillip with information more than direct firepower.

Perhaps Testaments, Revelation

(cont’d) obvious references aside, Phillip may even angle it to help ease his family into supporting any big plans he has.

What about… “Preacher”? It felt like that machine was actually some kind of priest welcoming them to the city. It has some weird messiah Vibe to it.

@Justinwya & Tio Ba – Thank you for the suggestions!

Andrius’ lines in this scene were absolutely epic. 10/10, you outdid yourself Joe.

How about Shepherd? Someone who cares for you, feeds you and protects you at this point of the story. But also someone, who feels superior to you and can send you to the slaughterhouse, when all is said and done…

The Architect on June 16, 2020 at 9:36 pm

@Luio – I’ve missed writing for good ol’ Andy!
@The Architect – Thanks for the suggestion! :D

Nice episode ! For the name i can suggest Nevi’im, Eden, Architect, or Chris but the best to name something is Bob :D

I must admit that Rosa looks a lot more terrifying in her Minecraft blocky form than in the comic :D

Dave on June 17, 2020 at 11:58 am

@SilverMaxy – Thanks for the suggestions! :D
@Dave – Haha yes!

Thank for voting, everyone! Closing the poll now and the winner is… a draw! 15 votes for Shepherd and 15 votes for Eden :D I’m gonna do the scene and have the characters announce the name!
