For the past few months, I've been working on a arcade-style shooter game starring one of the characters from my webcomic. Burnie, the lovable Fire Elemental fights a horde of flying demons with 8 degrees of movement controlled by the keyboard and 360 degrees of firing controlled by the mouse.
I've decided to take the concept a step further and blend the game directly into the current place in the comics story. That means that Nerdcore #112 will start out with a couple of panels of exposition, summarizing the "backstory" that was given in Nerdcore #111, then you'll be thrust into the game itself! Playing the middle "panels" of the comic!
There will be three endings, depending on how well you do in the game. The next week, the comic will proceed as normal, continuing the story from the best ending, which you've hopefully seen by then.
The game/comic will be posted on Saturday, Nov 25th. on piratejesus.com/nerdcore
