Bottle Rockets> Tricky Bottle Rockets is a sci-fi platform game by James Earl Cox III set to the song "Alberto Balsam" by Aphex Twin. A short artistic work about mothers, daughters, and space, it integrates a glitchy aesthetic quite well into the plot and gameplay, and will generally succeed in making those who play it feel all the feels.  ...
Skip Around the World: Finland> Dora Skip's landed in Finland in this point-and-click adventure from Carmel Games, and he's desperate to meet the famous "sauna guru"... but first he'll have to perform a few weird tasks as you travel around to actual locations and maybe learn a little in the process.  ...

Ha, nice crush the castle (and any other castle crushing game) reference. Keep up the good work there.

They didn't count on...

RED REMOVER!

It's really not his fault, the technology was a highly guarded secret. It was in a box sitting on a floating platform in space.

I don't mean to insult James Francis with this comment, but these comics just aren't funny. The fact that he just portrays the already obvious conundrums that occur in most games is much more annoying than it is funny. Most people already knew about the logical fallacies that a lot of games suffer from, since most games aren't trying to be based around realism, but entertainment.

It's like posting a funny picture that you found 5 years after everyone has seen it, and expecting everyone to love it.

Now, just because I don't think the comics are funny does not mean that I hate them. The art is rather catchy and colorful, which is very eye-catching and pleasing. It sort of reminds me of old Saturday morning cartoons; simple, yet very well done.

Again, I do not mean any harm with this comment, it's just that I find the comics to be a bit of an annoyance.

Good one babylon sticks! I enjoy it when I can relate to these comics, and this one is no different. I love Crush the Castle games!

@Seth B
correction: these comics just aren't funny to you. Judging by the scores these comics receive, you're in a minority here. There is obviously a lot of people who do think they are funny. Comments like yours are a bit of an annoyance, and I mean no disrespect, of course.

I second Stephan. These comics are, by and large, amazing and funny. The only annoyance is the people who merely complain that they aren't funny. Skip the comics if you don't like them, or perhaps offer constructive criticism rather than only being degrading.

Well done James, I love this one! :)

Crush the castle doesn't have cannonballs, flying barrels OR obese penguins! This comic fails!

:P

I agree that the artwork is great and the subject matter is pertinent, but have to agree that the punchlines are usually lacking.

Perhaps it would be more interesting to have viewers leave the suggested punchlines in the comments and then we could all vote on the best!

Remove everything but the last line, and it would be FUNNY.

Of course, now that we have King Defender this comic takes on a whole new meaning.
