Yes, today’s page is the end of How To Play. Yes, that is the note we’re going out on. I know this story was pretty different, but I’m really proud of it and I think it was important. It’s important to me, at least, to keep a bead on the humanity of my dumb monster characters amidst all the fantasy adventuring and terrible puns.
Speaking of fantasy adventuring and terrible puns – you can look forward to both in the next story! Which starts next week!
Yeah, no break this time, we’re plunging right into the next story. It’s a good one also! You’ll like it! If you read it! (Which you should!)
Some assorted vaguely Halloween-related news…
I did some art for volume 2 of the Songs from Mt. Ebott Undertale fan album project, which should be releasing later tonight! If you’re a fan of Undertale, or my art, or some combination of the two, that is a thing that’s worth checking out.
Pachinko Man, my point-and-click adventure game, just turned 2 years old! Perfect time to go and play it if you haven’t already. Gotta brush up in time for the release of Pachinko Man 2: Secret of the Ooze!
Also, I made a playlist of Halloween-type chiptunes over on my ridiculous Soundcloud account! Throw out your “Spooky Sounds Vol. 3” cassette tape, folks, THESE are the fresh jams trick-or-treaters can’t get enough of.
Anyway, happy Halloween! I’d give you all a fun-sized Milky Way bar and a pack of Sixlets if I could.
Badnix is back… and as you’ve probably noticed, we’ve hopped back in time a bit to Rog’s college days. Will Rog make it through school and become a successful enemy monster? The answer… probably won’t surprise you. But this story might!
My hope is that every new arc works as a clean jumping-on point for new readers, and World 4 is no different. This story is, among other things, a reintroduction to Rog and the Badniverse (yes that is the correct term) at large. So if you’ve ever wanted to show somebody Badnix, but didn’t want to explain ~5 years of convoluted webcomic backstory to them, now may be a good time!
In general I think the comics are going to be lighter on plot and heavier on humor & character stuff going forward – but if you’re a longtime reader haunted by the forest of dangling plot threads from World 3, don’t worry! We will get there… together. Eventually. (Probably.)
Hey guys! Been a while. Just thought I’d let you know some of what I’ve been up to.
My recent game, That Pokeyman Thing Your Grandkids Are Into, kind of took off way beyond my expectations? It got written up on Polygon! Yeah, like, the actual Polygon dot com. So, I was busy for a bit managing that and trying to patch over the massive bugs people kept finding. If you haven’t played it yet, you can check it out on Newgrounds or Kongregate. (Or on my site, but, y’know, I don’t get ad money for that.)
I have, somewhat inexplicably, gotten really into making weird and troubling chiptunes, mostly based on a mix of old video game music and antiquated pop music. Recently, I started a Soundcloud account to collect them all! I hope they will leave you entertained/deeply confused.
I’ve also been doing a lot of traveling, and freelance work, and doing art for albums and stuff that I’m not sure I’m allowed to talk about… but! Through it all, I have continued working on new high quality Badnix pages for all to enjoy.
A new story will be starting up in about a week – it’s pretty different, but I feel like it might also be the funniest/best that I’ve done? So make sure to stay dialed-in at Badnix dot com!
