      Our Facebook page

      The coursework for my second year of Game Design is to make a game, with 4 others, in 12 weeks. The artwork above shows the basic concept so far. Some of you may remember I had similar coursework last year (a tower defense game) though I didn't mention it much here.

      This year however we've also been told to make use of social networking in order to get a feel for what actual indie game development is like; so we've recently made a facebook page following the development of our game. The goal is to gain some attention for our game and maybe even a little feedback. I'm at a slight disadvantage in this respect as I've never used facebook before, and therefore have no one on facebook to ask for likes. I do, however, have this journal and at least a few watchers left.

      I'd appreciate it a lot if you'd take the time to like our page. If, like me, you don't have facebook; plus modding this entry and sharing it with your own watchers would be just as helpful.

      Thank you for reading.

      The Stickmen - 345

      2 years ago

      "Goodbye"

      18b989685f35e46cbe16d097938ca27d16222101

      Author Note: So, it’s been almost 8 months since my last update (the archive on the website is wrong as I've explained before). I think, on the 3 year anniversary of the comic, it’s time to announce the end. Going to University messed with my routine to the point where I couldn't keep up and when I was a dozen comics behind I just sort of stopped trying. I will be keeping the website up for the foreseeable future, and I may even upload the occasional comic, but I wanted to give the Stickmen an official ending. There will be no more regular updates

      To anyone who stuck around till now; thank you for reading. 345 comics is far more than I ever thought I’d manage and it was a lot of fun while it lasted.

      "Assumptions"

      7f18ae198310f2adc82e7be383df63ab57800994

      Author Note: Not seen either of these two in a while. Or, you know, a comic. Took a week off to catch up on TV and read some comics I've fallen behind on. Walking Dead is getting gooood.

      The Stickmen - 343 - On a tangent

      "Division in the ranks"

      ac73ca2b0965474338ee6510841bea6a74341058

      Author Note: 343 and not a halo comic? Huh.

      I did have a 4th panel showing lime beating Lemon with his sign, but I thought you all could use your imagination for what comes next.

      "Sleepy"

      86bcdfb75f853d8ecd2062dacf48d0a263692161

      Author Note: Midnight at New Years was always some impossible goal when I was younger. I can't even remember the first year I managed it. Must not have been important to slightly older young Chris.

      The Stickmen - 340 - On a tangent

      3 years ago

      "Mass Effect"

      c246b787ff7885a2d0736c6abdd33bb384418807

      Author Note: Still the best game I've ever played.

      I've spent almost every moment on my computer since seeing the end listening to the soundtrack (which makes me cry every single time) while looking up every error/inaccuracy/plot-hole the ending has. There are too many to ignore, and too many things which suggest they are (hopefully) pointing at something else. Not to go into spoilers, but I have to say I now fully believe in a certain theory beginning with the letter "i". Given the quality of the series, especially 3, it makes more sense that the ending is the most intricate ending I've ever seen than the inverse. Please don't prove me wrong Bioware.

      "More math puns."

      Author Note: This wasn't rushed. I promise.

      "Posthumously proud"

      42ffc25a8d64fc44bcf0634d1063c01472448631

      Author Note: Sorry about the lack of comics lately, I have a lot to do. I have a game due on Monday and a whole bunch of write ups following that. I’ve also had other things to worry about such as math tests. The biggest reason you’re not getting a comic today though is Mass Effect. I’ve been playing1 and 2 in preparation for 3 (which should finish downloading in about an hour). Two of the best games I’ve ever played... I’m really starting to worry about all the things I’ve heard about 3.

      Last night I finished 2... I made a mistake and Mordin paid for it. I made a deal with myself to keep this character from 1 to 3 so I’m not resetting. I have to live with the guilt.

      "Lies"

      1f41f3fe3a9f6044fc1f0bfbd158f76a19998457

      Author Note: I remember my first bedtime trench story. It sticks with you.

      Why do parents lie to their children so often? "Carrots can make you see in the dark", "don't make faces or it'll stay that way", "tell the truth and you won't get in trouble", "santa isn't real, stop putting out cookies". All lies!

      When I'm a parent, I'm going to lie all the time.

      Author Note: Does this happen to anyone else? Oh, and the apocalypse thing: Almost always Zombies.

        Helping my business grow and (hopefully) finally flourish. Getting back into the dating scene. Been really enjoying life outside of RT in general and gaming in particular (I haven't picked up a game controller for anything but Grifball in quite some time).

        Yeah... life has been good.

        I'm fine, I just haven't been in the mood. Probably because it's the holiday and I tend to do nothing during holidays.

        I unsubscribed for now. My obsession has shifted to Mass Effect for now. I was on the Progenitor.
