Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Oh hey, we are launching the Trenches!

    New, but familiar territory for the gang. I like it.

    Best part: I now get a new comic every day during the week, Monday thru Friday. Bonus.

    Anyway, I look forward to following The Trenches.

    new game, how many times will someone make note that the forum link goes to here? so far we are at 3 not counting this post.

    Looks narrative driven? Hope there is some PA-esque zaniness (humorous or dark) coming. If this single comic is representative of the series, it is a little dry for my tastes. Seems odd to see 3 hilarious people keeping funny at arm's length.

    This review was for all the fans I've neglected. I will now retreat back into the Internet.

    Also, I expect this to be exactly why I will never ever take a job testing games.

    you're = you are
    your = belonging to you

    their = belonging to them
    there = not here
    they're = they are

    This was totally unexpected since it feels like forever since the announcement, but I am suddenly crazy excited about this. I'm actually really hoping this is narrative-driven what with the link for "Seasons" and all. I'm just going to take a wild guess from this one comic, but it looks like Scott's doing the characters and Mike's doing the backgrounds, which is a really cool mash-up I think. Also, the site design is slick. I just wanna roll around in it for a while.

    Yeah... I definitely appreciate folks who try to get in the game industry, but I've never really thought it was for me.

    It seems like games only really attract two kinds of people:
    1) People who are super passionate people and intelligent. See the folks in the game design thread on here.
    2) People who are like, "d00d, I wanna make games!" I knew a few guys like this in college. Oy. It's really bad when they're failing they're CS classes and they're all "how are linked lists relevant to making games!??!?!?!?!?!"

    I'm not sure I've ever seen a middle ground. Like, you usually just don't end up in games.

    57th post!! Oh wait...

    It'll be nice to see how this pans out...lovin' a full week of Web comics slathered in maple syrup and topped with bacon bits...

    Now, for those left over days...Saturday and Sunday...what to do...

    I'm really looking forward to this new collaboration.

    I still remember being introduced to PA back in '99.

    BTW, does anyone know if there is a RSS xml link? I tried to put trenchescomic.com into google reader and it didn't work. Thanks.

    Just base-64, as someone mentioned above. It's easy to recognise by the characters that appear in it.

    It's also the way (for example) a picture gets encoded when you append it to an email

    Wow, it's kind of amazing you were able to note that it was a Tesla Roadster and not, say, a Lotus Elise.

    I hadn't even considered that it was a real car when I first saw it, just assumed it was a generic Ferrari-like sports car.

    Neat-o! For anyone else whose curiosity is piqued, it's this.

    These comics will get their own sticky thread in SE++ just like regular Penny Arcade comics and PATV episodes.

    They will still fall under the rule of "all discussions in the thread are to remain on-topic regarding the comic and its content" as per usual

    I feel like I've seen these descriptions before. Did they announce the characters as a kind of teaser at some point?

    Yeah, I found that, but there's no descriptions. I feel like there was an earlier version of the site. archive.org disagrees though.

    Quick questions: Is this a permenant ongoing thing or just a temporary project?

    And is SE going to keep sticking new comics like we do with PA?
