TG: so TG: looks like it just TG: the two of us TT: Looks that way. TG: fancy thay TG: * that TT: Guess I can go back to talking in orange. TG: why yes TG: u should def slip in 2 something more comforfable TG: while i pour you some robo wine TG: we have TG: much to discuss TG: *tents fingerns together w sultry cunning* TT: Actually, I think I like the red better. TG: ok i can check the cellar TG: might have some choice years left of the pinpot noir TT: I don't doubt the choiceness of those pinpots, but I'm not really here to screw around. TT: There's something important to talk about. TG: aw dang TG: janes after me TG: sorry bro it has to wait cant leave janey hangan TT: Alright. TT: But just so you know. TT: I think Dirk is probably going to make some sort of formal romantic overture toward Jake today. TG: WHAT TG: wait really TT: I've been crunching numbers all day on this. TT: The percentage of probability is simultaneously bananas and through the roof. TT: A complete disgrace of tropical fruit erupting from the peak of an unassuming domicile. TG: ohhhh my TG: how do u know TT: Because I've aggregated thousands of subtle clues indiscernible to primitive human neurology and rammed them through my determinative infatuation engine at the astonishing speed of information. TT: And also because I'm pretty sure it's what I would do if I were him, which is literally the case. TT: And also. TT: Because he kind of told me I guess? TT: There's that. TG: well thish should be interesting TG: did u tell jake or.... TT: Not specifically. TG: man does he even know how he feels TG: lol the poor guy is tortally under siege from all sides hehe TT: He knows well enough. TT: I've badgered him with enough "insincere" solicitations to paint a pretty striking portrait of my cognitive progenitor's inclinations, even if he wasn't able to pick up on such hints from the man himself, which strikes me as statistically implausible. And that's not even me just spewing more ironic AI bullshit. TG: i was never that clear on that TG: r u like TG: BOTH cruching on him... TG: or is it real 4 him and ironic 4 u or...... TT: It's complicated. TG: nooo shit TG: says the robo clone of the guy smitten wit the guy everyone elses smitten with in cluding said robob clone, maybe??? TG: hey can we hold this thought TG: have 2 answer jaaaaaame................ TG: *n TT: Yeah.
As you can see, it is a pretty swift horse schedule, with a couple of horseless weeks mixed in there. You may recall my mnemonic device for remembering the previous M/W/F schedule of Monhay, Wedsneigh, and Frihorse. Now we can add two more to help you remember, Tuesnort, and Thursclop. I understand this comic can get confusing sometimes, so you are definitely going to need those to help guide you on the rest of this journey.
All pages for the above horses have already been drawn. I still have a batch of pages to draw to round out A6A6I5, but not as many as I have already done. I hope that you like it when characters in stories talk to one another, because there's an awful lot of that to come. Please stand by patiently and enthusiastically as my fake teens sit around bullshitting to the bitter end. Then a bunch of cool stuff will happen, and that will be that!
1) New trailer for Hiveswap! Creeping ever closer to the release of episode one. In case you weren't aware by now, What Pumpkin Studios is developing it. WP is now a gamedev studio which I happen to think is pretty cool. There have been a bunch of Kickstarter updates recently showing progress too. Here are some more links which will help you keep up with game news: Twitter | Tumblr | FB
2) Homestuck returns on April 13th! That's in just a few days. Are you ready? I doubt it, but when has that ever stopped us before. We start with Caliborn's much anticipated masterpiece, running from the 13th-15th. Then regular updates probably resuming a week after that. I haven't decided on the update schedule yet, but when I do it will almost certainly be communicated to you in the only manner which you will tolerate from me, which is more horse calendars. I am thinking of a fairly swift update schedule. A lot has piled up. Over the last month (not counting his 40 page masterpiece, which was done months ago) I have somehow drawn another 400 pages, which is possibly some sort of MSPA record. Be warned, due to that obscene page rate some of these panels are lookin pretty fast and loose! They nevertheless exist, which is usually what matters most for this website. There's still more to draw beyond that to finish off the rest of A6A6I5, which is the final "normal act". But really not too much. We're getting real close here. I will chip away at the remaining panels as I roll out this batch. Then, it's all animation work after that.
3) Paradox Space! 4/13 is the exact one year anniversary of its launch. And as HS resumes, PXS will be pausing for a good while. We actually paused production back in January, and have just been posting from a comic buffer since. This has much to do with shifting priorities heavily to gamedev needs, but I'll explain more about it and the future of PXS in a little while, on that site. But also, there'll be a PXS book coming out soon! It looks very good. Also, if you haven't checked out PXS in a while, now would be a great time, because it's going into its pause on a very strong note. It's been running an incredibly great 51 page story by Zack, Jon, and Shelby. Kudos to all of them. This has easily been one of my faves.
