The Urthona Revolution

Say, didn’t you have this story lying around called The Urthona Revolution?

Yes… it was a good story, but for a number of reasons never turned into a game.

And didn’t you keep complaining about wanting to do some kind of episodic storytelling?

Yes, because I felt it would do me good to have the kind of project that actually allows me to release stuff regularly. A kind of creative pressure valve, if you will. Something I can work on every now and then, once or twice a week, to take my mind off of my bigger projects (without becoming a monster project itself).

Where is this going?

And didn’t you really enjoy making those collages for The Museum of Broken Memories?

Yes, that was-

And didn’t you just read this amazing webcomic called A Stray to Botaram which reminded you of the potential of the medium?

Yes, but I really don’t see where this is going. What could I possibly do with-

Oh.

Now there’s an interesting idea. You mean like this?

(That’s a link, by the way.)

Yes, Jonas. That’s exactly what I mean. Granted, this is only a short teaser, but every story has to start somewhere… and this is where this one starts.

Who exactly are you, by the way?

I am the voice of Sky Cat. Here, Evil Roda took a photo of me.

Jesus Christ!

No, not really. I could kill Jesus Christ with a tray.

Or with your laser eyes.

This is true.

And if people don’t like the comic, they can stare at your photo and go into a trance.

They are already doing that. And so are you. That’s why you think you’re reading this.

What? No! No! Aaaaaaaaargh!

And now, a selection of musical cues from The Twilight Zone

  1. Thanks for linking to my DA when you linked to the pic, mate.
    Also, this has me wondering, have you ever read anything on my DA?

  2. You’re welcome!

    I haven’t read enough to give meaningful feedback, though I would like to. I’ve been aware of the site for a while, but I simply haven’t managed to find enough time to sit down and read. I haven’t even read a single page of the novel I’m currently reading in several weeks. I need to get into some kind of more healthy rhythm.

    A web-web-web-web-web…

    A webcomic!!!

    I mean, a webcomic. A w e b c o m i c . B y J o n a s K y r a t z e s.

    Again. A webcomic. By Jonas Kyratzes.

    This is great. Am very much looking forward to reading it.

    A webcomic!

    (Oh, and it does remind me of The Fever Room, forever my favourite game scenario/setting. But this is different, this is something else. )

    “By Jonas Kyraztes!”

    Edited by God: Wish granted.

    Oh, “remind”. God. Wish I could overwrite that one.

    Oh God.

  5. I look forward to reading this webcomic.

    On a different note, I have a new computer and have been playing Phenomenon 32. Thus far, I’m really digging the atmosphere. Controls are still a tad sensitive, but I’m steadily getting used to it. And the music… you made a good choice there, Jonas. Excellent work.

  6. @Museum’s Guard: Yay!

    @Wolfgang: Also yay!

  7. One thing I like is how in the Industrial Area, a little bit of music I recognized from Museum starts playing. It’s kinda creepy, but that’s the game for you. Fantastic.

  8. I am so happy that someone recognized that!
