#209: Games Without Frontiers
Sunday, January 3, 2016
This kind of wraps up the Virtual Gaming experience for Jerry and Spacebot -- these guys and girls are absolutely crazy, or are they? And is that Brain Slug that tries to eat Jerry's head really dangerous, or just a hologram? Guess we'll never find out. Looks like they lost their AGP before they won any.
Next week, we'll see more places of future Metrotopia. Next up is a guest strip, though.
Tonight, we listened to the album "Day & Age" by The Killers. They combine several influences, e.g. Coldplay, U2, the Red Hot Chili Peppers(!), and Radiohead. Interesting record.

Wizard: Okay, then let's play Metroid because our new friends know it. Easy mode for now.
Wizard: It's a complex system of projections. Also, beware the bouncy balls and monsters!
Jerry Fallout [yelling]: Aaaaaargh! Spacebot! [calmer] I can't see anything! Let's leave!
Spacebot 4000: I guess I agree!
Jerry: Whoa, that thing tried to eat me! That's not how I remember Metroid!
Spacebot: Me neither. Well, let's forget it and go grab some food!
Blog and social media pages
Friday, February 5, 2016
Since our return in November 2015, we've massively expanded our presence in social media. Even though all of them have their links on every page, here's the complete list:
Our own blog
If you like our little comic, feel free to like or follow us in the social media networks you're members of, and use their sharing mechanisms to spread the word. Our eternal gratitude will be yours if you do.
Using these channels, you can also communicate with us, ask questions, or even try and make suggestions. We won't promise to listen to the latter, but are always glad to hear your opinions about our work. Even the critical ones, as long as they're more constructive and more eloquently worded than "you suck."
We deliberately left out Instagram since they're too hipster to allow access from a computer and require a mobile device. We create and publish this comic using a MacBook Pro, and I'm not too fond of switching devices just for one social network (I know there are unofficial workarounds, but never mind these).
