Homestuck
« on: September 24, 2010, 09:46:58 PM »
From the voluminous desk of Andrew Hussie,

A production that puts the Web in Webcomic (and also the "mic").  Like EarthBound crashes into and destroys ninety percent of The Sims.

An ADVENTURE, wherein FOUR CHILDREN play a GAME WHICH INFLUENCES THE REAL WORLD, and the bizarre CONSEQUENCES THEREOF.

 comic that updates not once!  Not twice!  Not three times!  But FOUR times per day (average - it's more like d12-2).

With MUSIC and DANCING and BEAR BAITING INTERACTIVITY!

Archives THOUSANDS OF COMICS DEEP.  WEIRD TIME SHIT!  A CREEPY DOLL that was created out of the nightmares that IT ITSELF INSPIRED!

Don't just stand around in indecision!



What do you want to do next?

Well, Gamzee is flipping out.

Looks like everyone's right fucked.

Looks like a callback to the kids' web browsers, although Hephaestus was probably enough of a tip-off.

That Problem Sleuth+hammer combination will probably turn out to be the most important item in the game.

Gamzee somehow got the Warhammer of Zillyhoo to menace Karkat with, so it's got some time and space shenanigans going on.

I figured that was a different item entirely, since it had a different grist requirement.

The Gent of Piss has returned. There may or may not be a Quest Bed involved.

Does this mean that fedorafreak's handheld device will attain god tier?

Just the battery, I think.



The real question is whether or not he's in a session of his own, or if he somehow stumbled into someone else's session.

That eight-person session diagram from way back when Rose was playing ectobiologist a couple of years ago showed up in a recent scrapbook picture - I'm thinking it's relevant to the current situation, but don't know how..

The baroness not being human might serve some clue, but that could easily be true no matter whose session it was if she were one of the queens.

Either that, or Hussie is going to use the Scratch to fuse multiple sessions into one, and increase the influence of the japanese animes by upgrading the 'chess' metaphor into a 'taikyoku shogi' metaphor, and combine the playing cards with mahjong.  With that amount of complication added, he can have a ton of extra nobles.

Either that, or Crocker is the propspit equivalent of jack noir, who happens to be female, or the derse equivalent of Ms. Paint.

Her being a troll is probably the most likely outcome, though.

It starts off pretty slowly, but I'd recommend reading to the end of Act Two at least. By then you should have a good idea of whether or not you want to keep going (the answer is yes).

Well, Hussie is currently not updating as fast as normal.

And by 'not as fast', I mean he spent a week not updating, then put up 41 pages in a single day.

Word on the street from the artists and musicians is that he's got them working on something big, ala the translation team of "funniest joke in the world" - nobody sees anything that isn't their portion.  And apparently it's about a ten minutes long flash animation.

I'm completely fine with Hussie making us wait a week or so for this flash.

Anything to keep his mind off of that thirteen year break notion.
