After discussing some listener feedback, with a special defense of the Sluggy Freelance web comic by Aaron Carstein, we decided to challenge each other’s game design skills with a 24 hour contest, similar to Game Chef. Each of us came up with 7 game elements that the other host would have to come up with a game or scenario that would incorporate all seven elements. As our game ‘ingredients’ ranged from the Ural Mountains to pacifism, we both came up with some twisted stuff. Take a listen and voice your opinion on the superior creation with our brand new forums! No letter from Tom this week due to a hard drive failure but we got a good anecdote and of course, shout outs.

Shout Outs:

  • Darken: A D&D web comic of a group of evil adventurers being, well, evil. Not stereotypical ‘I am going to tie this woman to the railroad tracks’ but more of a ‘I am a selfish bastard who really only cares about himself and I will do whatever it takes to survive.’ A breath of fresh air when compared to the typical goody-good heroic adventures that populate D&D themed works.
  • Minus: A brilliant fantasy web comic of a little girl with godlike powers who uses them for her own amusement. A modern day Little Nemo in Wonderland with a touch of the Twilight Zone.
  • Wonderella: Superhero themed comedy doesn’t get much better than Wonderella.
  • The Secret Life of Elevators: A man gets stuck in an elevator for 41 hours. No, it’s not a joke. It’s an essay on elevators, life, and the existential dread that hangs over our heads. A great read.
  • F-22 Raptor: A flight sim where you can drop a nuclear bomb on a city. This is a good thing.
  • Lichcraft: An Oblivion mod adding new adventures and the ability to become a lich. If you play Oblivion on the PC, you should get it.
  • Pyramid Head: Another Oblivion mod. Put Pyramid Head in the game. Because you know, those other demons and monsters in the game? Total pussies. You want Pyramid Head. You NEED Pyramid Head.

  1. Hey guys, love the show as usual. Haven’t written in awhile, but hearing you talk about web comics, made me think of one that I read that is unbelievably great! It’s called Atland.
    The guy who, writes, draws, inks and colors also runs Blambot, a site for comic book fonts, free and pay. Here is the site, you won’t be disappointed.


    It’s currently coming to an “end”. He’s taking a break and then is going to relaunch it. No staleness here, unlike Sluggy Freelance, which I was only able to read once. I mean one page. Terrible. I agree with you on this one Ross.

    Keep up the good work!
