New Cartoon Now Online

2011-01-15 10:47:45 by CirrusEpix

So, I can finally make that post I wanted to for the last month.

For those who had not been following, I was contacted by Nexon, the company behind the online game "MapleStory" to create a cartoon for what would become a monthly news-blog about their company and games. While I might be criticized for this choice later, when I stopped laughing and realized they were serious I started to see this as a great opportunity to reach out to lots of gamers and elaborate on many of the themes I explored nearly a year ago including "moderation," and "be nice to others." I finished the first episode before Christmas, and I am proud to say that it is finally online. The whole "Babber Box" (as they call it) is about 30 minutes long, and you can find a snippet of the cartoon at about the 15 minute mark. xFdk

Of course, (i guess for time reasons) the whole cartoon was uploaded separately at this link: id7c

As you can see, the style and art is very similar to the game, but I had to make some changes so that they are a bit easier to animate. This episode was intended to set up the main characters including the return of everyone's favorite fool "Michea." My goal is to follow their misadventures and pick apart all of the weird behavior, logic holes, and funny practices found not just in MapleStory, but in most online games. If I can start a "be-nice-to-noobs" revolution (coming in episode 3), then this will be well worth it for me *smile

So check it out and let me know what you think.
