Just in time for Devil’s Night! Pachinko Man, the point-and-click adventure game I designed/wrote/programmed, is finally complete! And you can play it right now, in your browser, for free!
The game is very similar to Lucasarts classics like Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, with the added twist that you are a Man who is also Pachinko. It’s surreal and funny and is full of beautiful pixel art by Alex Swenson, creator of Job Dog. It also ranked 2nd and won an award for Best Writing in the SA Gamedev Competition 2 years ago (which if nothing else should tell you how long we’ve been working on this dumb thing).
We thought about releasing the game on Steam or some type of App Store, but ultimately we’d rather just get as many people to check it out as possible. So if you like the game, be sure to share it! I’ll thank you for it – and Pachinko Man will too. Or he would if he wasn’t a fictional character.
My recent travels through the plague-blasted wastes of New York have cut into my cartooning schedule a bit – so in lieu of an ordinary comic, you get this seasonal filler today. TA-DAAA!
We’ve done the Halloween costume thing once before, but this time I decided to have some fun with it and venture into hyper-obscure territory. Can you figure out what any of the costumes are? Or the connecting theme? Let me know! I promise I will be sincerely impressed.
Anyway. Happy Howl-boo-scream season, guys~
Two new characters have been added to the Cast page – the shadowy King Metafoblin and the equally shady Charlotte Nidd. Check ‘em out! If you’re into that kind of thing.
Well, it took ages, but I’ve FINALLY settled on a new site design! The old one had its charms, but I feel like this one’s a lot cleaner and easier to use, and fits the new full-page format a lot better. Plus it’s all colorful and shiny! Those purples and grays on the old number were bumming me out.
This has also given me an excuse to update EVERY SECTION OF THE SITE! I particularly enjoy the new Cast page – I’ll probably be adding more profiles to it in coming weeks, but there’s already lots of info up there to help you get recapped on the story.
Eagle-eyed readers may spot the two giant “???” buttons at the top of the page. What mystery pages do they conceal?! Well, here’s how you unlock them:
- Read through the entire archives of the comic at least once
- Read through them again, but this time in reverse (making sure to skip over all guest strips and filler – this WILL break the code)
- Click on the site’s banner ad 200 times
- Enter code ABBACAB on your Genesis controller until you hear a chime
That’s actually complete nonsense, they’re just sections I’m planning to debut later on. They will be very cool sections, though! I promise you will like ‘em.
Also forthcoming: new comics! Sorry about the delay, but you can probably tell I’ve been busy. New storyline should start on Wednesday!
