Default I'm making a video game! Demo soon.

I feel the time is now right to officially announce a long-gestating project. I'm turning JAQ into a video game using RPG Maker! It follows the plot of my comics fairly closely, but the real draw for me was expanding the world to include as many NPFers as possible (and just in time, when many of them haven't posted in years!), including lots of references to stuff from the heydays of last decade! Haha, I'm selling this super well, right? Seriously though, I'm kinda making, like, an interactive nostalgia trip that's hopefully amusing to play for its own sake? The main thing being a massive "NPF Town" map, with lots of stuff to poke at and explore, and plenty of side-quests to add some breadth to the otherwise linear story. I've put in over 300 hours of work on this over the last year or so! Still a long way to go, though.

That said, I'm going to drop a demo (which I guess will be like a pre-pre-alpha kinda thing) which covers the quote unquote starter area (ie, the top third of the town map). Following the comics, it only gets you through about the first nine and a half of them, but there's a lot more to explore outside of that. So yeah, I'm rushing to add the last few elements missing from that area (a few dialogue trees, items to buy, that sort of thing) and then I'll make it available, probably early tomorrow.

So, maybe this is a thing at least a few of you are interested in?

I was actually thinking about JAQ the other day. Everytime I find a key in a game I remember the "You got a small key." gag. It's stupid but I guess that's the kind of thing my brain puts in priority memory.

Anyway, sure, hit us up with a demo whenever you're ready, who would say no to free games.

I would be quite interested. After all, always did support JAQ.

Default Do I get a cameo?

So This is NPF; The Game of the Movie That Never Happened, based on the original webcomic, right? I kid of course. I do vaguely remembered JAQ, but I think it was a bit before my time and I only ever saw a few of the later episodes, so I had no idea what was going on and trying to go back and find it all scattered throughout the old comic thread was a bit too much work.

So yay videogame version!

I mean, that's not inaccurate...

As for cameos, I will gladly put anyone into this game, on the proviso that if you don't already have sprites you have to help me make them. (ie, Provide a base and tell me what you want done to it.)

And as for the comic, if anyone does ever want to read or re-read it, it's still archived down in my signature. Just click "Next in storyline" to only see the JAQs.

Meanwhile, I've cut together a (crappy) little trailer of my work on the game so far. The first section is those 9½ comics included in the demo (and nothing else--I wanted the rest of the demo to be unknown so you can explore) just so you can see what it looks like, and then the back half is stuff I've been working on from much further into the game (set to some music that Fenris wrote for that superhero flash series we never made).

Looks very neat. I still got that JAQ poster hung up in my room, even! I hope your efforts go well, and of course support any and all things that may stoke my ego.
