As you guys know, we've been working our butts off all summer making Pitfalls and Penguins (The Jack of All Blades RPG) and we hit a very important milestone today.
The first print run is fully funded on Kickstarter, and if you are interested in preordering the book you get a copy if you chip in at least $20 to the kickstarter. The price is likely to go up once the kickstarter is over so this is a good chance to get it on the cheap. Much like our comics the pdf of the game is free online, so feel to check it out at PitfallsAndPenguins.com
Spent a lot of this week working on google sketchup models that will not only make the next few pages better, but will also allow me to clarify the action in some of the last few pages:
Art and I have prided ourselves for years for our ability to bring new pages to you every Monday, no matter where we travelled, or even during times of great personal loss.
A lot of things are changing for us right now, as Art is about to finish school and needs to pass his pharmacy licensing exam, and as I try to juggle my day job, the comic, and my new video projects.
Even so, this comic has an awesome final chapter written for it, and it deserves to be seen through to the end. The last few pages have been visually sub-par in my mind. I'm revisiting them, and preparing the next few pages, to look as good as they should be.
You have stuck with us this long, and we want to show you we appreciate you by making this chapter as awesome as we can.
The next few pages might not always be out on Monday, but they will be damn good, and we will be proud of them. Thank you so much for your understanding.
I recently made a video about some of the physiological barriers I was running into trying to fit more work into the week, and about creative experimentation. If you're interested, you can check it out here:
We are still working on the comic, but the next several comics are considerably more complicated than most of the comics we make. And on top of everything else Joe and I are incredibly busy in pretty much every other aspect of our lives. This is NOT a hiatus. The comic will continue to update, just at a necessarily slower rate. Thank you for your patience.
I met the creators of this game at PAX East:
I also interviewed Andi Buchanan on my way home?
