Double Dragon: "We'll Live"
Posted: Friday August 30th, 2013 by

Just because Annie sold me a hamburger and I showed Ted a sad face doesn't mean I didn't do exactly what I said I would do. I won't talk about the deal itself because that undermines the point. I'll leave you guys to make awesome assumptions about what it took for me to acquire the game.* So why would I hide it from Ted? Well, this is where we're splitting to live our lives apart. No need to end it on a sour note right? Some day he'll come back to visit and enough time will have passed that he'll respect what I did there. I hope.

This comic would have been posted on time yesterday had I not wrestled with myself over the song choice to play me out. It needed to speak to far more than just talking a large russian man out of his "son". It needed to address Ted's presumed success as well. I went through a lot of music. But the opening to Eminem's "Lose Yourself" eventually came to me and it did everything I needed it to do.

* In my head, Annie never saw the game as his son. He was driving a hard bargain and Ted gave up too soon.


A friend of a friend working out of Wales-based game studio is trying to get their current project greenlit on Steam. If you wouldn't mind, hit the link below and support both the game and the burgeoning game dev talent in Wales.
Steam Greenlight: Master Reboot

Details: Master Rebbot is a first person, adventure/horror game set in a world where death is not final, but rather the soul can be uploaded to the Soul Cloud, a series of dedicated servers that store your memories, allowing you and your families to revisit them forever. But something goes wrong in the process, leaving you stranded and alone trying to piece together the moments that make up your life, leading you to question life, death, and deal with those things that will return to haunt you.
