Pixel Dungeon Adventure - A Web Comic
« on: August 13, 2018, 04:43:50 PM »
I'm new to the forum but thought I'd share a web comic I've been working on for a bit. It's called Pixel Dungeon Adventure and is a sort of D&D Dungeon Crawler hybrid. Anyways, hope you all enjoy.

UPDATE: I've you can now read PD Adventure from the beginning at pda.h2zgames.com
I'll continue posting new ones here though.

Welcome! :)

Yeah, that scenario always feels all too common - though really hard to get around in game design too I find unless you make all the enemies undead or something. Order of the Stick does some good deconstruction of it. I really like the pixelly style though - it definitely sets it to fit clearly in-genre!

The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Re references to stat dumps etc: is there a specific game system this is built/designed around, out of interest?

Nah. Just kind of an amalgamation of various games I've played. A little D&D, a little old school jrpg like dragon quest, and little dungeon crawl plus some other random stuff.

Keeps you safe from readers rules-lawyering you that way too! (I've likewise gone for not having a specific ruleset in the comic I've been starting out on writing recently which has a vaguely D&D like world).

Are all the tilesets for this your work? They're really nice - I particularly like the focus on the heroes' hats, it helps give them some clear identifiers despite the very minimalist style :)

Thanks. The pixel work is my own. What's the name of your comic? I'll be sure to check it out.

I'm with the wizard!

How often are you writing new ones of these out of interest? Or do you normally do a few a day?

I tend to do them in spurts, so like 4 or 5 in a day and then go a bit without creating a new one. It might sound corny but it's whenever I get "inspired" if you will.
