Some days I feel like this.
Yes I did it. I removed that little app. There is a reason though. It’s not that popular but I’m still constantly worrying about bugs and stuff like that. Also I update my comic so rarely I always forget to update the app’s content. I want to dedicate the little time I have for the actual thing.
It’s official now I guess. I changed jobs and am moving to Espoo. You probably know I’m an avid gamer and have been very interested in working in the game industry. Being a programmer at Futuremark is a bit closer to that and I am very happy about this opportunity. Hopefully I’m also less stressed out in the future and have more time for this comic!
I finally managed to release my game Marty’s GemDrop on iOS. It only took a year.. It’s my first published game on iPhone and iPad, so I’m still in learning mode.
You can currently purchase it at 0.99$ from the app store. If you’re not ready to spend a dollar or a euro, wait… I will release a free ad-supported version in the near future.
I didn’t forget Nerd Me a River just yet. It’s my favorite site! I just haven’t had a lot of ideas for comic strips lately. Need more FUNNIES!
Sorry for all of you who only have iPhones, I don’t have the tools to make an iPhone version Well, at least not yet I don’t. I was thinking of releasing a PC/Mac version of the game also, but I’m not sure if it’s suitable for a not-so-portable platform. Or am I just too careful?
Here’s how it ends, with a SUPER SPECIAL COLORED FINAL PANEL for all of you who have waited for these past… THREE YEARS?!! Oh.. my… god. I really am the slowest comic artist ever.
I created the plot for this comic on a whim, without thinking it through at all and changing it in every chapter so that it would be funny and not logical. I hope you liked it. The story has some gaping holes and some things (every single thing) were left unanswered. The ending is a tribute to an ending in an original Captain Nerd comic I made years ago, while tributing a comic ending my brother made many years ago while he was imitating a comic I made even manyer years ago. Simple, isn’t it? I think it concludes things nicely. What? It doesn’t? Well, at least it’s funny. What? It’s not? WELL AT LEAST IT’S COLORED.
I will probably make part two that explains or does not explain the plot in this comic But right now I’m going to focus on some game development and maybe after that, I’ll start updating NMAR more.
PS. I might release the original Captain Nerd comic I mentioned that is almost 10 years old. I found it on my hard drive while looking for some other stuff. It’s nice to see my drawing skills have developed, at least a little. My patience to do detailed stuff and write a good story, however, haven’t. Well, see ya next time.
