What I’ve Been Doing! And, Story Recap Part Three! 06/23/2015

by Joe

Yes, I’m still alive! The theories about my demise were quite entertaining, though ;D

As you know, I’ve been super busy these past few months and I haven’t been able to give The Pocalypse the much-needed attention it deserves :( But, I can now let you know what I’ve been up to!

I’ve teamed up with some super awesome people at Horrible Unicorn Game Studios (HUGS!) and we’ve began development on “Legacy of the Copper Skies“! (A couple of screens below!)



I’m lead artist on the team and I’m responsible for all the pretty pixels! :D The game is currently on the Square Enix Collective and we need YES votes! So, please, please, please head over to the page (http://collective.square-enix.com/projects/136/legacy-of-the-copper-skies) and hit YES :D We’d really appreciate it and it would really help the game get a successful start!

Aaaaand, when the game is successful, maybe we can convince the team to turn its experienced talents to The Pocalypse Defense 2! ;D We’ll see what the future holds but, for now, please help us make Legacy of the Copper Skies as awesome as possible :D

As for The Pocalypse, my time is starting to loosen up a bit so I’m hopeful to start getting scenes up in more reasonable timeframes. Let’s get the recaps done and then move on to Chapter 9!

Enjoy Chapters 5 & 6 and thank you always for your support!

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

Whew that recap took a long time. I cant really remember what’s going off though lol…

WM28UK on June 23, 2015 at 10:12 am

Yay!! I’ll be sure to vote yes, Joe. Maybe I should draw some fanart of it.

The Last Heroine on June 23, 2015 at 1:12 pm

@WM28UK – I need reminders too haha :D There were parts of Chapters 5 & 6 that I almost completely forgot!
@The Last Heroine – Thank you so much! Fan art would be awesome! :D

Joe on June 23, 2015 at 1:23 pm

Golly, that was enjoyable. I really need to sit back and rewatch the whole thing some time, it’s been far too long. I’m glad to see this come out Joe! Good luck with the game!

BloodWolf7 on June 24, 2015 at 6:17 am

I would vote on the game, but unfortunately it requires to register an account, which I won’t do (Who needs a Square Enix account anyway?), so… sorry about that.
But I’m glad you are back making the comic :)

eey on June 27, 2015 at 1:47 am

Hey author Joe is back! haha, thought i wouldnt see life signs of you again dude

Acrontus on June 28, 2015 at 2:32 am

@ Dave…..just why?? Hate that kind of attitude and holy shit the sites gone pixellated…. either that or my eyes have finally given up?

WM28UK on June 29, 2015 at 10:21 am

@WM28UK – Yup, site’s been updated! Got rid of a lot of old stuff that wasn’t needed and the new layout will be ready for future plans! :D

Joe on June 29, 2015 at 11:00 am

@WM28UK Sure, not wanting to give out my e-mail/personal info for an account I would then never use and I could easily get spam from is a totally shameful thing.
So let me rephrase that so you can get it:
“I would gladly vote on the game, because it looks awesome, but I’m not interested in the hosting site (Square Enix) or any of its services, and they force me to register for voting, which I don’t wish to do, alas I can’t vote, not because I don’t want to.”

Dave on June 29, 2015 at 3:37 pm

@Dave – Totally fair and understandable :D What’s important is that you think the game looks awesome so thanks for that!

Joe on June 29, 2015 at 3:44 pm

So, on a whim, I check my ‘dead’ folder, and see this has updated. Awesome to see this isn’t dropped, and the game looks promising. I look forward to when its playable

SomeGuy on June 30, 2015 at 3:59 pm

Glad to see the new project, but what about Pocalypse:TD2?

Sean Stevens on July 2, 2015 at 1:29 am

@Sean Stevens – Still in the works! I’m working with a great team at Horrible Unicorn Game Studios on Legacy of the Copper Skies and, when this game is successful, maybe we can all convince the team to share its talents with TPD2 :D

Joe on July 2, 2015 at 10:36 am

@Joe – While hesitant, I find this answer acceptable. looking forward to it.

Sean Stevens on July 3, 2015 at 12:40 am

DUDE! Long time no see! I thought it was the end of the pocalypse for good ):

Tio Ba on July 3, 2015 at 1:37 am

@Sean Stevens – Totally understandable and I appreciate your understanding and support :D
@Tio Ba – Long time, indeed! Don’t worry, if the end should ever come, I will let you all know in a more grand fashion :D

Joe on July 3, 2015 at 12:05 pm

I dearly hope that grand fashion won’t be around for quite awhile! Until then I’ll keep watching for updates!

BloodWolf7 on July 5, 2015 at 2:14 pm

Bwoahshit! He lives!
Thought we lost you for good there, buddy! :D

Augusta on July 6, 2015 at 12:34 pm

@BloodWolf7 – Not anytime soon, don’t worry! :D

Joe on July 6, 2015 at 7:37 pm

Our attempts at assassination were unsuccessful @BloodWolf7 WE….MUST….TRY….HARDER…..WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY!

WM28UK on July 7, 2015 at 8:53 am

@ Augusta – sorry my bad!

WM28UK on July 7, 2015 at 8:54 am

@WM28UK & BloodWolf7 – I knew that was you! >:(

Joe on July 7, 2015 at 9:04 pm

Initiate protocol #1337 – The Pixel Wars shall begin!

WM28UK on July 8, 2015 at 7:33 am

@WM28UK Way to spill it the whole plan!

BloodWolf7 on July 13, 2015 at 1:17 pm

@BloodWolf7 – Shit sorry, i mean war? what war? no wars over here Joe….you are hearing things mate hahahaha this guy….

WM28UK on July 14, 2015 at 7:59 am

why is it taking you so long to make the scenes now joe you used to make them so much now you dont why in 2011 you made lots of them and now it takes months for you to make one what is up. I know you got other games but what about this series we all really enjoy it we just want more scenes.

Chazbo on July 14, 2015 at 11:16 am

Well, for one, he has a kid now. and for 2, he’s working on another project, with another team, that will (hopefully) be helping him with The
pocalypse once thy complete that project.

Sean Stevens on July 16, 2015 at 1:17 pm

Ok fair enough after this project will he start making more scenes then.

Chazbo on July 16, 2015 at 2:38 pm

@Chazbo & Sean Stevens – Actually, two kids now! @_@ But, yes, I really wish I had more time to work on scenes like I did in the beginning (I did 3 scenes a week, which, in retrospect, is insane – I have no idea how I did that!) but life has gotten in the way and The Pocalypse has, unfortunately and necessarily, had to move down my to-do list :( I am hopeful that one day, I’ll be able to return to a more reasonable and, more importantly, consistent schedule :D

Joe on July 16, 2015 at 10:36 pm

congratulations on your second kid and i know that you have a lot of tink that come first instead of the series so i sorry for being inconsiderate.

Chazbo on July 17, 2015 at 8:12 am


Chazbo on July 17, 2015 at 8:12 am

@ Joe – train the kids, kids do the comic, profit, sleep zzzzzzzzz

WM28UK on July 17, 2015 at 8:13 am

@Chazbo – Not inconsiderate at all! :D I appreciate you taking the time to check on the status of the comic and it’s fans like you that make me want to devote more them to it.
@WM28UK – Haha, that is an excellent idea :D

Joe on July 17, 2015 at 10:06 am

Wow, been a while since i got to comment. HOW’S EVERYBODY! I, too, on a whim, decided to check up on my dead comics. Surprised and glad to see ThePocalypse back with another scene and a site design update!

Author Joe, I know you’ve been lots busy, and I do hope that you’re able to manage your time well.

Just, post a quick word update when you can. So we know you’re alive.

Damian Dante on July 27, 2015 at 2:12 am

@Damian Dante – Good to see you again! :D

Joe on July 29, 2015 at 9:24 am

A quick word update is all I think we really ask of you, so that we know things are still well. The silence is what is truly killer at times =(

BloodWolf7 on August 2, 2015 at 5:54 am

This is my first comment(I think…lol)…surprising that it took me so long to make one too, since I’ve been reading this comic forever now lol. Good things come to those who wait, and this comic shines in that message. Loving the comic, can’t wait for The Pocalypse Defense 2(or any other future The Pocalypse related games ;)), and stay frosty my friends! Especially you Joe, I’m sure you’ll be blazing out new content(comic or game wise) faster than you think, and if not enjoy the ride! :p

DMAN on August 4, 2015 at 6:51 am

Well, this has officially become the Berserker of Webcomics; awesome story, unique art, but will only update 1-3 times every year.

Since you’ll only have time to do an update so few times, maybe only once more this year, can you at least make the next one on Christmas? That way it’ll be like a present :D
