Well hey, a new comic board. Why not start off with the biggest one we talk about so much.

Let us talk about Homestuck.

And also Problem Sleuth.

I'm actually really impressed by the HTML5 use here instead of regular Flash. I was wondering if he'd ever dabble in it.

Also:

Still the best.

Meeting more of the Alpha Trolls is really awesome. Sure, it bloats the cast even more than it already was, but Hussie did a good job of making them unique. It's also good that they aren't just exact opposites of the beta trolls. but still similar in some ways.

Thinking about it, I'm actually a tad apprehensive.

I'd like to find out more about what the actual reality of the game will be. Homestuck is ripe with video game material that could be fun to see. The alchemy being a thing that can exist will be very nice, if a bit limited to how many items are in the game and what Hussie comes up with. I'd like to see what the actual gameplay would be like, as well. It'd be easy to make a basic RPG style game, but it'd be nice to see if they went with a different method than that.

I do like the RPG style flashes, though, so I guess if it was more of that but fine tuned to be more like an actual game, then maybe that'd work. Maybe combat akin to the first flash in Act 4.

The rewards of the project are definitely tempting, though.

I'm sure they'll sell them on What Pumpkin eventually.

Im glad it will tell its own story than being too intertwined with the actual story though.

I like to limit my kickstarter contributions to 150 bucks, so I don't think Pyralspite will be in my budget, but I will get all those other nice things, like the god teir shirt and print.

And I'm now a backer. I'll be getting a digital copy of the game and it's soundtrack, plus signed copies of the game and an exclusive print (which I'll have to wait to use until my brother finally reads it because SPOILERS).

I was gonna get the fun pack, but if I wanted a t-shirt or pins I could just buy them later. They'll always be on the store, and who knows, other, more interesting merch might be added to it since Homestuck will be surviving past it's initial 7-act story.

Someone actually donated 10,000 to have a fantroll appear.

Glorious days.

It hasn't shown on Kickstarter yet.

I wonder who did it. Something tells me this will cause all sorts of hilarity.

Alternatively, they might've contributed it some other way, since Kickstarter only allows a maximum of $10,000 pledges, and maybe they wanted to pledge a little more than that for whatever reason.

And its gone again.

Donation volley ball!

Also, I'm donating 25$. Game + Soundtrack. Access to the game development blog persuaded me.

I think it's the usual thing with Kickstarter things that you usually get access to part of the site for updates on the project.

Yeah, this is my first time donating to something.

Mostly because most of the kickstarters are silly.

I've helped fund two kickstarters. One was The ScrewAttack Gaming Convention 1013 and the second is this one.

So the first 10k fantroll was posted and looks pretty rad. He has a top hat. He also has a cool story behind why the dude donated 10k for this.

Next game update is up by the way.

Loving all the pre-scratch trolls so far. It's fun to compare them to the post-scratch ones.

This is why people shouldn't take Homestuck seriously.

No story that is meant to be taken seriously should ever have 12 year old wind gods hitting omnipotent demon canines with Trouble dice-powered popping hammers that materialize silly hats.

I personally think every serious story should include that.

Ages from now, that will be a standard feature of every vast epic

this is not a bad comic i think. The last update feels like he has not actuqlly forgotten the other characters that he had previous ly not used for a while
