Dev Blog Update #4

Posted on

Let’s talk about what is going down with the site!

Extras page access key update

It seems a lot of you are really digging the content within Extras box!

Thanks for signing up to the Facebook page in order to get access!

Since some readers don’t use Facebook, I have posted the access key over at TopWebcomics as an incentive to vote for the comic.

Try it out, it only takes one click and you would be doing the site a huge favour!

It’d be great if you kept voting every day, but it’s up to you!

Extras page unlockable content update

New content will be available through the Extras box every time the Facebook page reaches a milestone.

Currently there is an outstanding 241 participants, with new content being unlocked every 100 likes.

So start recruiting, as something spectacular will happen if that number breaks 1,000!

Art page fixes & dialogue updates

Ever since the old archive of comics were hauled into the Extras box a lot of lingering problems with previous comics are still present.

These include spelling errors in the dialogue, text being too big and inconsistent, and transparent backgrounds being buggy for a few readers.

I am going to run through the archive and fix up as many of these as I can this week.

  • Fixed text & transparency issues.
  • Added sound effects to panels.
  • Added patterns to backgrounds.
  • Recompressed files as smaller .jpgs.
  • Fixed site background gradient issue.

I think it would be neat if the text size and fonts were consistent throughout the comic, even if my art style has changed a lot over the course of half a year.

Hope you enjoy the outcome!

Fan art

I’m still itching for some great Fan art!

If you have the time, enjoy the comic, and want to express your love, please feel free to contribute.

You never know, you might get something in return if I ever find a bucket of time to dip my head into!

Thanks for reading, keep telling me about site issues and other features you’d like to see in the future!
