The Blood Cloud: The Game

**IF THE GAME DOESN’T LOAD TRY HERE**

I’m so excited this is finally finished! The Blood Cloud: The Game!

A long time ago KC Green of Gunshow fame tweeted: this was my favorite old game and watch game http://yfrog.com/gz20xqp

He was referencing his book The Blood Cloud which has a story in it called The Blood Cloud [read it here] At the same time I was playing a lot of Game and Watch games at http://pica-pic.com/ and I was inspired by his art so I made it!

I drew all the art and learned Actionscript 3.0 and got really mad at Actionscript 3.0 and almost threw my monitor out the window but then my friend Mike Stanton came to my rescue and saved me! He’s a wiz at this Actionscript stuff so if it wasn’t for him this wouldn’t have been possible! Thanks Mike!

Basically this is a love letter to KC Green. His comics really inspired me to get off my ass and just draw. All the comics I drew this year after attending NEWW were inspired by his energy and ability to get a funny idea down on paper and get it out to the readers. I’ve read The Blood Cloud probably 20 times and it keeps getting funnier every time I read it.

Anyway, enjoy the game! I loved making it [except for the parts I hated!] and hope you like it!

This is . . . The Best Thing.

I’m on a big new, retro games kick at the moment and this is perfect! Pretty hard though. My best score so far is 340, but I’m sure someone must have done beter than that!


Just got here (June, 2013) via Hark! A Vagrant. Really loving the comics (working my way backwards a bit) and this mini game is beautiful. The joyful little smiling on the vampire makes it, big time.
