The Escapist webcomic contest

I recently took part in a contest launched by gaming website The Escapist. They were looking for a new webcomic to publish, offering a contract for two strips a week. So I did what I could and came up with this (warning: most of this won’t make sense, much less seem funny, unless you are a bit of a videogame nerd):

Not the most inspired comedy, unfortunately, probably also because I had never even considered making a comic on this topic before. I encourage you to check out the honourable mentions, though, since these guys knew what they were doing (this one and this one are especially beautiful I think, and enjoyable by non-gamers too). I’m pleased with having managed to submit anyway, and I’m quite happy with the simple but (I think) nice and easily recognizable style. Now on to things that come from the heart instead.
