Shareware viruses? Suddenly suspicious.
Technically they are escaping to the world of yesteryear. It’s just that the yesteryear in question is 1916, and the world is Western Europe.
Or Beech Bend Amusement Park in KY, mid to late Seventies. The Ernest P. Worrell character came about so they could advertise Beech Bend Park without *showing* Beech Bend Park. It looked like a set for “Miri” or a Kurt Russell Escape movie… The same “shabby, but will never be fixed” flavor. I refused to test some of the rides; Gomez Addams wouldn’t have trusted them!
Was that the one with the alligator pit?
I doubt it, but could be wrong. Rusty rides, splintery silvered wood, disintegrating walkways- those I recall.
Actually, that sounds right up Gomez Addams’s alley. What, do they over-charge for parking or something?
Well it seems to be doing better…
“I think I’ll go for a little walk…”
Glad to hear it is doing better, after going back to nature… I suspect Nature looked it over and said “Nuh uh!”
Alright! I have spent the last week or so reading Skin Horse at each moment available and I gotta say it was a great time. Both glad and sad to have finally caught up. Narbonic was one of my favorite during the boom of webcomics and only thanks to a friend did I find out about this.
I have to say, and I dunno if Jeff or Shaenon already thought about it, Skin Horse would probably work for a great Adult Swim pilot. With such a diverse yet distinctive cast, and the heart that goes in all of the stories, I think it’d be fantastic to see them all in animated form. And after the success of Rick and Morty people have surely opened their hearts to mad science in their cartoons.
It’s a shame that, you know, animation costs a lot of money.
Wait. Did Nick just say “Crumbs”??? Oh boy, he’s affected.
Yeah, he said “Gosh-darn” last week. 60% chance he shakes it off in a dramatic way by the finale. (Remember what cussing did the last Whimsy arc?)
If he does I’ll be thinking of Erfworld the entire to.d
I thought Crumbs was the black bird’s name.
There are some ‘offensive’ emoji figures that won’t exactly fit Whimseycorp’s idea of wholesome values.
If they’re interacting in the VR world with characters with computer viruses, I hope they remembered their virtual vaccines and their virtual condoms…
…do they stop working after 30 days? Or are you expected to buy the next two installments after getting the first one free?
Emoji: so yesteryear.
**Adjusts his hipster shades**
I think this place either got wrecked by Aimee (which is why she is hiding out) or somehow got unrestricted access to the Internet.
You mean you only get a few basic emojis and have to pay to use more? I don’t know whether that’s evil or genious
I suppose that depends on how much you have to pay to make everyone else stop using emojis
I think Aimee is in a really, really pissed off mood. She has better cybernetic control of the program they’re in (at least for now), and the appearance of the place reflects her anger. Maybe she and Nick will fight each other for the appearance/soul of Virtual WhimseyLand
To be fair, she has good reason to be pissed.
On second glance I was wrong, but I thought that was a fire hydrant that exploded, which is a better gag than i would have come up with if I tried.
So that’s why they call them “fire hydrants”! Water hydrants might have been a safer thing to install…
Nah, that’d be a “fire pyrant”.
I tip my patch hat in your honor…
Anyone else noticing parallels between this and the current storyline in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? For those who don’t watch, the villains have created a virtual world called the Framework that they’re trapping the heroes in. One setting could lead into the other (which into which depends on your opinion).
Now that you mention it…
I’m getting Fallout: New Vegas flashbacks from this. Though that had less explosions… well, if you don’t count Camp McCarran. Oops.
