L8I – Cache Miss

Once, long ago, with some friends, I brainstormed a cartoon that would be a sitcom starring parodies of common videogame tropes. I've tinkered with it for a while, designing and redesigning characters, even sculpting them in 3D...

...until I had the bright idea of prototyping my stories with a sprite comic. Even better. I would prototype my stories using graphics that I could turn around and re-use to make fun little video games.

It's an idea that isn't wholly gone from this comic. Will I one day be demoing a Hat Trick video game? Or making Jump the Shark more than just a joke at a gaming icon's expense? Support the comic because that is an awesome future to move towards!

Note: Bunny Trail Junction has a rather special copyright because I am trying, in my own small way, to find a healthier reality for intellectual property. However, Candy the Witch, displayed in the animation above, has been used in collaboration projects with normal copyright protection, and so, rather than sort out the mess of whether I can include her in the broader Sharealike license, I'm going to mark her as an exception. All Rights remain Reserved with this one until I otherwise say.

Back on the Menu, Boys!

We’ve launched a weekly comic with the Mad Christian Mondays Newsletter, John Michael Jones Gets a Life. As for the others, Hat Trick, the Therian Bestiary, and so forth.. well, I’m not abandoning them. I aim to bring them back sooner or later.

Right now, in preparation for future comics, I’m retooling the Hat Trick video game. Some time soon, a new, better version of it should be available online. I have half a notion to take that version, and make the next chapter of the story a game in and of itself, but I don’t know whether I will roll that way in the end.

Hat Trick is my favorite, though, so I will finish the story if God permits.

A Note on What’s Going on with Bunny Trail Junction:

  • I had always planned to release a December monthly, then go on Hiatus at the beginning of 2022 and evaluate how the comic had gone thus far, relaunching upon the completion of my evaluation.
  • A close family member spent November nearly dying, resulting in the cancelation of the December comics. I do still have them on hand, and will go back and retroactively add them eventually.
  • Bunny Trail Junction is on Hiatus for January and probably February. The format and upload schedule will be changed when we relaunch, but we will continue the stories we’ve left hanging.

Thank you for your patience. I am quite excited for the next incarnation of this comic. For a sneak peek at what that might look like, take a gander at our video games.
