This comic is inspired by my own determination to stay ahead of a Let's Play of The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, which I have easily done. Even if they weren't only posting 10-15 minutes of gameplay a day (gameplay further slowed by them talking and making jokes), it turns out that the game goes by really quickly when you're an adult who's played it several times before.
When deciding on the art direction for this comic, I was determined to make it so my comic about video games wasn't just two people sitting on a sofa talking bout video game stuff. It's possible I overcompensated.
For anyone interested, the Let's Play I speak of is by The Game Grumps. I assume many, if not most, of you know of them, but for those who don't, be fairly warned that they use a lot of adult humor and swear pretty gosh dang darn diddily regularly. And with ye fairly warned, a link to link.
Sidenote regarding general updates this week: I'll be posting sketchbooks and commentary somewhat haphazardly as they're completed throughout the week. I will announce them on the EGS Twitter and Tumblr, and post links to them in the Weds / Friday EGS:NPs.
