What I’ve Been Doing! And, Story Recap Part Three! | June 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!

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!

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 :)

@ 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 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.”

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

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.

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.

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 =(

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

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
