Young Rog and Chibi Perry have returned! We first saw the li’l forms of these characters back in 2011 for the first Badnix Halloween story, and they popped up again for a time travel story in 2014. Now they’re back… for yet another Halloween story! Should be fun.
Note that, chronologically, this story takes place after all Li’l Badnix content seen to date – if they seem younger it’s because I’m actually trying to draw them visibly younger, instead of just like, making Rog’s legs shorter. (Note also that the chronological placement of this one-off holiday story probably doesn’t matter at all.)
Whew, finally came to the close of another story! I’ve gotta admit, it wound up being tougher than I thought to get the hang of a Kelly & Metafoblin-centric story. Having said that, few things have brought me more joy than bringing Evil Kevin into world. (Will he show up again before the Haunted Ghost of Cap’n Redgebeard? Taking bets in the comments section!)
Anyway, I’ve really been jonesing to get back to simpler stuff and characters I feel more at home with… aaand I’m going to do that! Starting next week we’re going to take a little mini-story detour for some good ol’ fashioned Rog & Perry monkeyshines. Also it will be Halloween themed, on account of I love Halloween so dearly and can’t resist drawing stuff related to it in October. So, that’s going to be a thing! Beware! Take care!
The final version of my new game, Kurm Frog Teach ABC, is now available to play for free on itch.io!
The game is a physics-based visual novel (that is literally the best description I can think of) in which you control an education-minded frog puppet who just wants to teach children ABC. Along the way you’ll encounter math problems, celebrity basketball tournaments, harmful vegetables… oh! And there is a monster at the end of the game.
I created Kurm Frog for the 2017 Awfuljams competition (which it won!) and I’ve been polishing it for a public release over the past month. It’s hard to talk about the game without giving too much away, but it’s something I’ve worked really hard on & am really excited about! If you like my comics work or my other games work, I think you’ll like it for sure. So make sure you give it a try!
ANARCHY IN DREAMLAND! This is an excerpt of a piece I did for the Kirby Charity Zine. You can pick up a digital or physical copy of the zine over here – and you really should, because A) all profits from the zine goes to Meals on Wheels, and B) the art in there is REALLY REALLY GOOD. Check it out!
Also (and you know this already if you follow me on the Social Medias) – I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A NEW GAME! It’s called Kurm Frog Teach ABC, and if you’ve enjoyed other games I’ve worked on (like Pachinko Man), you… might enjoy this one too? I DON’T KNOW!
I’m trying to avoid giving too many details away about the game because I want people to be surprised when they play it, but trust me when I say YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH A NOODLY-ARMED FROG SOMETIME IN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO!
