Rom Check Fail - Thanksgiving Plans

Listening to: Nothing.


This is a new comic I'm working on called Rom Check Fail. It will be something I do independently from Robot in the City and I'll be trying to update both regularly.

I've always wanted to do a comic that was video game related, but never had the confidence to do so. I always figured it would just end up being the same as every other video game comic and be brushed to the wayside for its lack of wit and humor. Then I read a comment from Bill Watterson regarding his comic Calvin and Hobbes and it inspired me. It was about the strips where philosophical talk would happen between Calvin and Hobbes. He decided that he'd stick them in the wagon for these strips since talking heads would be boring. That's when I decided to stick normal conversations in video game type situations.

I'm still trying to find the right style and pacing, but I think it's a good start. The site's registered and I should have something there relatively soon.

And for those indie gamers out there: yes, I am well aware of the fantastically made game ROM CHECK FAIL by Farbes. I will link to his game on the comic because I think he deserves much props.
