uranianUmbra [UU] began cheering tipsyGnostalgic [TG] UU: miss lalonde, do be carefUl. UU: i can see that yoU are preoccUpied with aggressors at the moment. UU: bUt yoUr viewport is beginning to black oUt more freqUently. UU: i wanted to talk to yoU one last time before yoU enter, and yoUr whole session blacks oUt for good. UU: and before... UU: well, before i possibly do the same. U_U; UU: please reply when yoU have the chance. TG: hi TG: whats this TG: about u blacking out for good? TG: * blapck TG: * wait no n/m UU: ah, hello! UU: escaped troUble, i presUme? how are yoU doing? TG: i feel kind of like shit but other than that im toters perf TG: im starting to wonderd if drinkin early today wasnt that coolest idea?? TG: now i have all these responsibitities while my brain is tellin me to go fuck myelf TG: *self TG: aint wanna fuck no elf TG: not in this condition at least TG: i would probs need some hella strong coffee b4 boning a elf UU: i am sorry to hear yoU're feeling Under the weather. UU: bUt now i am wondering. hm. UU: coUld it have been that regUlar intake of yoUr soporific liqUids was inhibiting yoUr commUnion with the void, rather than exaggerating them as i had presUmed? UU: if the effects are wearing off, it coUld explain the increase in viewport blackoUts. UU: and once they wear off completely, perhaps that is why yoUr entire session goes dark on yoUr entry. TG: that is an interesting theory that has like TG: mostly no usefull bearing on anything probably? UU: yoU are probably right. still, i can't help bUt specUlate on sUch matters. it is what i do. :u TG: yeah TG: i think i was being a dick byut im not sure? sorry TG: glarghgle TG: i am sure feeling liek TG: a gross bunch of nasty trash in a scarf TG: all taking my surly shit out TG: on nice and cute aliems UU: oh, not to worry. ^u^ TG: heyy TG: UI TG: UU* TG: you know everything right UU: hee hee! if only. TG: k well TG: what is with the looming strandy crap in the sky TG: the miles> glasses called em that TG: i know i got to escape them TG: but what are they actually gonna do?
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.
