Well it took some time but here we are. Giga has worked on revamping his style while away so let us know what you think and how he/we can improve it.

It's silly to draw distinctions between casual games and hardcore games but Zynga's stuff always felt less of an entertainment vehicle and more of a casino machine. There are ways to make -ville type games work and be entertaining and frankly they'll have to if they're gonna survive.

This comic was meant to go up before the break when Farmville 2 came out but by shear luck (not so for the employees involved) that Zynga announced layoffs making this stuff relevant again.

Welp, we're back! I've redesigned Gardevoir so that her head follows the same perspective as everyone else's, so hope y'all like it! :D

In addition, I've finally finished all of our new character portraits for the "Character" page. As soon as Box catches up, we'll upload those for you guys.

I've also enrolled in web & graphic design at the local technology comic, hopefully putting the stuff I've learned from making the comic to use. Wish me luck!

and now Gardevoir is a good 32% harder to cosplay as.
In all honesty I do like the new style, it's not a huge change, but it does affect the feel of the entire thing.

Next Comic will be a little while. Keep checking back. The Storm meant there was a change of plans in the script.

Love the style, love the commentary, love the joke! Keep it up, you've earned an old-school subscriber.

I like the new head design, it's kinda cool.

Well I don't like the change. Gardevoir looks ugly now in my opinion.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Can everyone go into specifics about what you either like or hate about the new design so we can refine it?
Anonymous (Guest) edit delete reply
I like how Gardevoir looked before better. The way she looks now makes her look like one of those male Gardevoir or something.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply

You mean Gallade? Because Male Gardevoir exist but there's no difference in the sprites of either gender. (the Fandom has a field day with that concept.)

Nah, I don't really like the new art style. Well, as long as you get rid of that weird bit of hair that's behind the bangs, it would look fine.
MisterM edit delete reply
Still, dat Roll face is cuuuuuuuttttteee...
ChaosKiwi edit delete reply
Mhm. I see. Yes.

The hair looks wonky. I'm sorry but it's true. It's just too... raised, I guess. little to high.
