Babylon Sticks: Inspiration comic

A custom casual gameplay comic created exclusively for JIG by Babylon Sticks creator, James Francis. Follow Babylon Sticks on Twitter: @babylonsticks.


"Yeah, well, if we die, you'd better hope we respawn!"


You ran 2735m before not quite dodging a snow drift.

Tap anywhere to resume your escape.

This comic can certainly be applied to the game Volcanic Airways. "The Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland has erupted, you must escape the volcanic ash and get to safety! Loops get you more points!"
How's that for inspiration!

A slightly different perspective:

You smothered 54 helpless skiers and 3 yetis before running out of mountain.

Tap anywhere to rebuild the snowpack.



This comic gives an idea if a game is inspirated by real things.
Again, congrats James.


Wow, and I thought *I* was bad at SkiFree...

Now I'm picturing Shigeru Miyamoto shouting, "This would make an AWESOME game!" in a dilapidated apartment with busted pipes projecting through walls, drowning turtles, fungi growing on furniture, and a small fire occasionally sending sparks flying through the air...

I bet nobody ever said that after accidentally locking themselves in their office.


Or prior to killing themselves as a suicidal bussiness man.


I bet not everyone has a museful crow bar lying in every room of their house either... 'Tis a shame.

I like how dynamic this cartoon is. The signature at the corner even has a different hat on!


Jonny_s: Oh man, that is BRILLIANT! :D


I have to make this game!!!
