Mag, Scientist : Episode Six!

Late again, but here's episode six...

Click HERE to read from the start!

Party Crash : A 2000AD Choose Your Own Adventure

This year's 2000ad online advent calendar is currently in progress and Dirk Van Dom's contribution is a multiple choice adventure in the style of one of those books that were very popular a number of years ago. Here's an explanation from the man himself...

Remember the old ‘choose your own adventure’ stories? Well, I’ve prepared one for you to read/play, that centres around a night at a 2000ad Christmas party, as you mingle with various characters, get involved in various situations, and just generally try to make it through the night. The rules are simple. DON’T get eaten by Zombo. DON’T send Slaine into a warp spasm. And, above all, DON’T piss off Judge Dredd. If you can manage all that, you MIGHT impress Tharg and be rewarded, you MAY score with a really hot chick (3 to choose from!), you MIGHT save one character from an old nemesis, and you COULD foil a devious plot to sabotage the party and blow everyone to smithereens! Depending on the choices you make and the way you progress through the story, there are a number of different objectives you can be presented with. There are also quite a few sticky endings you can come to if you don’t choose carefully, so watch out!

To make things more interesting, Van Dom decided to get some folk to do some illustrations to accompany the text. Due to the nature of the thing, which pictures you see will depend on which choices you make, so you'll have to do some exploring to find my one.

Incidentally, the picture I've used at the top of this blog post is something I quickly put together using cover art by Chris Weston. Feel free to nick it for your own blog if you too want to post a link to DVD's game.

The Stick-Man Christmas Special (2008)

Apologies to anyone hoping to read the next installment of "Mag, Scientist" today. The next episode has been delayed and should now be with you in a couple of days time, but while you're waiting... Christmas time is almost upon us once more, and you know what that means, don't you?

That's right... Repeats!

In this case, the repeat is the Stick-Man Christmas Special I drew a couple of years ago.

The 2010 Stick-Man Christmas Special will appear in the, (also soon to be forthcoming), Eighth Temple APA issue. All going to plan, that should surface some time next week.
