#680 - Current Affairs

Everyone knows the golden rules of RPGs:

- Talk to everyone, and do it three more times to be sure.
- Save your game, and then save the save.
- Pick the path that looks the least likely to progress the plot first.

I need you to know I'm very proud of this title, it works on at least 3 levels. Would it have been better to not call attention to it? I struggle with this every day.

Then again, I suppose there's a few jokes in here I haven't called out, and I trust, you, the reader! to figure them out.

You know, Toby Fox is both mysterious and hilarious and he doesn't engage with his fans like this, pointing out jokes and plot points. But you know what he has? Millions of followers. Know what I don't have? Millions of followers. I've got like, 300 tops. And only about 15 total that interact. So I need to keep you all on your toes! And if you don't have toes, keep you on your little foot nubs. And if you don't have little foot nubs, just keep working your way up until I've kept you on it!

Anyway this is why I love comments. I need that dopamine, man, please, don't be stingey, bro. Just gimme a little hit of comment, I promise I won't ask for any more until next week. I'll have another page for you bro, you know I'm good for it. Bro. Don't do me like this, leave a comment bro.

Lurker here. Loving this comic, always so happy to see an update, even if I never comment about it. Except, you know, this time.

Something abiut Hero and the npcs in this one that filled me with fuzzies and made me especially happy that this comic exists. Thanks for all of the work you put into this.

Back to lurkin', never could get the handle of social media

It's that perpetual sense that no matter what you do, NPCs stay the same. 😌 Thank you for commenting!! That's super kind!

The Times are Tough NPC got a reskin and you didn't show us. How dare you! I'm definitely going to ask what his reskin looked like the next time you take questions. Be prepared!

I dunno what you're talking about, this is clearly the THBDoL npc

Hah, you know who I was talking about! He is a reskin! I will be wanting to see what he looked like.

Sorry I haven't commented as much lately, I've sadly been forgetting to check as often, and a lot of the times what I wanted to comment on has already been commented on. The comic is still doing great and know that even if I don't comment I'm still extremely happy you chose to continue this.

You got two comments from me this time, one about the comic and one about your commentary.

Thank you so much! 😭 How dare you forget. This should be the one solitary solace once per week from the hellscape that is life. 😤

At this point, I've completely forgotten what it's like to not be underwater.

We've been here a very long time. The characters must be getting pruny by now

I remember in the original comic fans had already speculated that Reka was gay, apparently the Cherry/Reka ship was pretty popular back in the day

She had dropped a few possible hints, so that was my take as well.

So me... I go round talking to everyone in RPG games. Especially since the latest game I'd played was Legend of Heroes which actually does move NPCs around after you do a mission or similar in-game.

Anyway... (optimistically!) looking forward to seeing what happens next with Reka and Tuna! (The poor girl's already had one kind of heartbreak with that sword, please dun give her another! ;.;

You don't need to WANT to do it if you've ALREADY done it Cherry. ;)

Also the last panel reminds me of this Awkward Zombie comic based on The Last Guardian.

Lurker who occasionally comments here, I'll give you your so wanted comment, and as a little extra, a corn🌽

Good evening! - Sorry I'm late with the comments, especially with the author's note specifically requesting them. - fortunately, it seems like there's a few lurkers who chimed in, so at least it wasn't bare down here.

For a genre that wants you to talk to everyone, potentially multiple times, there aren't that many that handle it well... All too often it's too easy to accidentally skip a text box while doing the 'tap to advance the textbox, tap again to load it fully' on a short box. Or alternatively, have to quick tap through all 8 of that that one civilian's lines when you talk to him again. >_< Controllers have more than 2 buttons these days, guys! You can give us an 'end conversation' button, and/or a separate 'load textbox' button that doesn't also advance the page.

Cherry... it wasn't really a 'Hero and I kissed' situation, so much as it was an 'I kissed Hero' one. You would have wanted the first much more, and it would leave you feeling less unresolved. I feel for you. That said, she's in a tough spot. I don't think she'd feel quite the same for him if he wasn't the "So dumb I love him" sort. - It has its charms, but makes for some unresolved longing. We need to find a way to target some of that thoroughness her way. :) (talk to everyone again, despite already seeing several saying what they said last time)
