Zombies and NPCs :D | November 27, 2012

by Joe

Thank you to everyone who has shown interest in being an NPC in TPD2! I’ve been having a blast making new NPCs and I’m ready for more! Please check out the store for more details on how to get yourself into the game as an NPC! :D

Now that I’m in sprite-making mode, I’ve been working on the units and enemies that you’ll be controlling/fighting :D Some common feedback I receive is how The Pocalypse needs more variety in its zombie population. Here’s 3 new zombie-types that will appear in TPD2 and 1 that you’re all familiar with :D

Enjoy Scene 7 – “Re-convincing”!

A big THANK YOU goes out to Dominic Longden for this scene’s song! :D

Who can you find in the Hammerston suburbs? Vote to see! Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! (Powerfist, Greybane, Rosa, Cross, Stinger, Jake, Obliteration, and Doc are in this one!) Thank you for voting!

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

“Ah…um yes I am a taxi driver” Funniest line I’ve heard in a while. Joe is still very unlikable and apparently very gullible.

Not only is it that every time they talk he is trying to convince him to stay, Joe also never has any of his memories. someone needs to get him some sort of journal or something

Noooo! Too short Joe! It’s longer than it used to be, but it’s still too short!

Also, I am taking on a bit of a project for the Pocalypse. But I need your help. I need you to tell me a sprite you like(besides a character), and I will build it in Minecraft. I have almost all, if not all, of the characters ready to be made. So let me know about doors or a TV or something if you want the sprite in the collection.

Wow. Seriously? “I’m a taxi driver.” Joe. Please look around you and see if there are any taxis. If there are no taxis, there is no taxi drivers. Vampire who is tricking Joe needs to find a taxi.

“Unsavoury characters” should be “unsavory.”
That said:

Cliffhanger! Aaaa! I can’t wait for the next one! Thrilling as usual.

Actually nevermind. They’re both legitimate spellings.

Damn you, alternate spellings! Curse you!!!

That’s right, Taioko. In fact, the added ‘u’ implies British upbringing. Like with colour, or flavour. Plenty of other differences between American and British English that I can’t quite think of right this moment.

great new desings joe !
just well a diffrence between the zombies would be great, like give the one hair, other one bold diffrent color clothing stuff like that, that would be so much better then one model used over and over again

Way back Bernie mentioned something about underwater monsters. Will there be any scenes under water?

For a second, I thought Joe was like a normal person with realistic feelings and emotions.

I think that vampire might be Rosa undercover, or maybe not… I can’t wait to see how this will turn out :D Amnesia from brain damage, amnesia from trauma, amnesia from gunfight… Common things in the entertainment industry but “amnesia from the ‘soul’ of another – superhuman – person trapped inside your body that is not even yours” is quite new I think. We got a new trope going on here :D
(I’m just theorizing here of course, but I think that’s why Annika didn’t recognize Joe in the last filler scene, because it’s not his body.)

Also (author) Joe, where is the Leaper Zombie that jumps on your troops from a distance or the Tonguer Zombie which pulls your forces close to the enemy? I miss those :D
Don’t worry though, stealing ideas from the best (Valve) is not a crime ;)

i hate how this is turning up, its like watching 50 first dates, and what little I did watch of it too

Well, I’m out of basic now and I just got caught up again. My guess is Joe will turn the vampire down when he realizes he never told him his sister’s name.

@Aethrys I doubt Joe will ever notice until it’s too late. XD

Pretty music! I want to download it if possible! If it is, tell me where I can get it please! As for the episode, I rather wish it was longer, and I hate cliffhangers. XD Great episode though! I loved it!

Sorry Author Joe, but Joe really is so incredibly naive… please tell me his subconcious has at least learned something.

@APStorm, yeah, I know about the whole British thing with the spellings. Initially it was, “Damn you British spellings! Curse you!!!” but I felt that some people might take that the wrong way when it was meant as a carefree joke. So I changed before clicking “Submit” and I don’t regret it. :V

That said, it gets me thinking about if the vampire is British, like some of the other older vampires.
Wouldn’t surprise me.
I’ve got to wonder precisely where New Hammerston would be on a map…

Just finished catching ALL the way up from the start of the comic to here. And dammit Joe, you’re like the king of cliffhangers or something! I’ve loved reading/watching/drinking this comic, and I can’t wait for more!

Joe’s denial is appaling. I never took him for much anyways. I really am tired of him at the moment. But he’s a realistic character so i feel for him. I don’t think i’d take the end of the world that seriously.

Joe-> Ok!
It just seemed that all enemies zombies are guys. What happened to the girls who fell to the clutches of the zombies? Were they dismembered and can’t hunt? Are they smarter than the average zombie or else use the male zombies as slaves in the way of Amazons? Cause, seriously at least one female should have fallen to the zombie disease in the Pocalypse :p

@Joe I follow the comic without commenting… After you release TPD2 even if you have others games remember that this comic is more important… Most of the people that funded your campaign did it because of the comic, if it all just were TPD1 all the people that follow you would have just moved on with theirs lives…

Anyway I really loves this comic… Its just fun to watch and read so please dont dare to give priority to others things after you release TPD2 (which I’m waiting for)… Life first, Comic second and other games third :)
