Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a LucasArts point and click adventure game
This was a lot of fun to do. Particularly in thinking about which scenes to draw and also realising just how suitable the Buffy stories are to this type of game. There are so many objects and puzzles to solve. It made me think it would be a good writing exercise to take your story and see if it would fit into this type of game. If it can’t then I suspect it’s probably lacking a little narrative propulsion.
There are many, many other scenes I could have chosen (I’d still like to do 70s Spike on the subway car) but I thought one for each season was nice.
Some I chose because I wanted to show a specific location. Some I chose based on a gag that I thought would be funny e.g. Cordelia’s spatula and Willow’s broken crayon.
Here’s each episode I used as reference:
Season 1 - Welcome to Hellmouth
Season 2 - Inca Mummy Girl
Season 3 - Homecoming
Season 4 - Hush
Season 5 - Triangle
Season 6 - Grave
Season 7 - Touched
I’m going to be at the Bristol comic expo this weekend selling some prints.
THE PSYCHEDELIC JOURNAL OF TIME TRAVEL #2 IS NOW AVAILABLE IN PDF FORM. Huzzah.
I contributed some art to this fine anthology.
I’m going to be at Thought Bubble, Leeds Comic Art Festival this weekend from the 23rd to the 24th of November. I’ll be sharing a table with my comics partner in crime (and also my CRIME partner in crime), Mark Pearce, hocking our various comics, prints, sketches and sultry looks to the unsuspecting public. I’ve got copies of Issue One AND Two of Big Jimmy, while you can snag all three issues of Mark’s awesome Ronin Dogs. THATS the kind of swag that Justin Biebers would spit on his young fans to get his hands on! Check us out in New Dock Hall at Table 64!
While you’re there you’d be some kind of silly non-Belieber to miss a chance to check out other amazing artists in New Dock Hall like Jess Bradley-Bove at Table 173, John-Paul Bove at Table 172, Jon Lock at Table 113, Nich Angell at Table 114, Rob Cureton at Table 98 and Andrew Scaife at Table 84.
See you up North!
