I know what you're thinking? What the fuck are you doing, Doc?

Well, unfortunately, I don't know myself. Here's how it goes.

This is a Comicompo!

What is that, exactly? It's when someone draws a comic page, gives it to you, and you have to draw the next one without any previous knowledge other than the page given to you!

I am asking anyone who has a mouse to join this one, because simply put, the game is not about artistic talent!

The more rediculous the changes in style, the better, the more wacky the changes in character dialogues, the more awesome, the more disconnected and forgetful our heros are, you get a better ending! You do not need to stick to canon, you do not need to stick to anything other than characters.

So sign up now for this competition, and get a page in the comic book of history.

The currently selected theme is "Indie Dreams". Where the comic starts as the indie developer falls asleep and dreams, and we see how the developer ticks. (Yume Nikki jokes aside).

I'm giving myself a day to work it out, but I want to see who'd be willing to draw nonesense and haphazard illustrations.

Basically, the game is played by each person getting a page number, and thus as each person draws their page, the next person recieves the previous page. Unable to see the rest of the comic, they draw based on what they see, and lead into the next part, leaving the next person to do the same.

Despite my utter lack of drawing skill, I'm in.

I notice you didn't forbid jokes about LSD, Weird Dreams, Cocoron, or any of a number of obscure dream-themed games.

This reminds me of another game sorta like this where one person writes a sentence and then gives it to the next person and they draw a picture of the sentence. That picture is given to the next person who does not see the original sentence and then writes a sentence about the picture. And then that sentence is given to another and they draw a picture of it and so on.

It can be scanned as long as it's sized to the set dimensions which will be decided before the game begins.

Since we've gotten a good response, I'm still unsure as to what would be a good time limit for each page. I'm thinking somewhere around either 3-8 hours, considering it would take a very long time to complete the entire compo with the amount of people we have.

Although feedback would be wonderful.

The game will begin tomorrow at around 5 PM EST. (Barring any issues with time, locations, or other.)

Well, it's not too late to join. Since my connection to the internet has been lovely today,(Thanks verizon!), I'm going to be compiling and starting this mess bright and early tomorrow!

So anyone who still wants to join in, feel free.

Dimensions and pages get listed tomorrow.
