Has anyone seen that PowerThirst video, the rocket can addition? I thought about that when writing this.

This took an absurd amount of time,
BUT BUT BUT
I finally got a handle on flash! Which means there's NOTHING that can stand in my way!

I'll comment more tomorrow.
For now
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Thanks for stopping by!
~Gear

P.S. The rest of the comic will continue hand drawn as usual. This was just a fun thing I've been wanting to try, and I thought the page concerned primarily with TIME would do well with animation.

Wow, stellar. Big field of gray. Lovely, and so mobile friendly.

Quick UX question here for you: What's the likelihood of a new member of your audience taking any time whatsoever to get off one device and move to another just because you decided to play around with Flash?

Wow this animation is pretty awesome, where did you learn how to do good pixel art, I have been trying to learn so I can do some sprites for an old school style game but can't seem to find good places to learn.

You can get ripped sprites from multiple places, but I like to turn to the Spriter's resource [link] . If you want to make your own sprites, there are various ways and tutorials available online. I use the pencil tool in photoshop to manipulate sprites and build my own, but you certainly don't need photoshop to make sprites. There are plenty of opensource sprite editors online.

Poor Samus. Looks like this is finally starting to demoralize her. That look of defeat when he leaps off the page...

Good thing the koopa troopa seems to be starting to suffer from some sort of ennui.

You know, I'm starting to suspect that this is the first time in a long time that this koopa has had anything like entertainment--or perhaps even a conversation. Well, Peach is polite, she may have talked with it, but she also comes across as fairly docile in many media (well, unless you give her a tennis racket or a go-kart or a skillet, I guess), so having someone so different, so tenaciously determined to escape, has got to be a blessed relief to the tedium.

He probably was enjoying seeing Samus get herself deeper and deeper into trouble, but now that it seems that she is well and truly stuck, he's likely realized that she will need a bit of a push in order to get things moving again.

Just a question, do you draw princess Samus pixel by pixel, or do you draw a big size picture and reduce it ?

First off... really cool on the animation. It looks awesome, and obviously was a big time investment.

Second, it feels like the meta-plot has just struck our turtle between the eyes. If Samus doesn't get out, the plot is stuck. He has nothing to do, and is left watching her dangle indefinitely. Or until Mario gets there, I guess. But that might also be functionally forever, since oldschool platformers could be pretty hard, and a lot of players gave up without beating them.

So now I'm curious how the two of them resolve this.

You've totally bolstered my confidence.

Thanks for your thoughts. ^^

Therein lies the problem with defying the Third Law--if player-character progression is completely stopped, then the plot can't move (unless Bowser comes around again). I do hope that Bowser isn't too hard on him though once Samus does escape.

For whatever it's worth, I thought you'd given enough hints about that aspect of the story.

That was awesome. I like how you used a modified version of the Peach sprite from the opening of Mario RPG. It was so appropriate. XD I wonder what the troopa has to do?

Congratz on grasping a handle on sprite animation. :) Though even if this is supposed to be a comic it would've been cute/hilarious with some 8-bit sprite effects.

I find this page really funny at any rate.
