IT’S AN OFFICIAL POST ABOUT MOCCA FEST! I will be there this weekend, selling an assortment of reasonably-priced items including: giclée prints of some of my paintings, sticker sheets of satellites & Outer States clan crests, and really rad Gaming’s Feminist Illuminati buttons and die-cut stickers. (You can still get the t-shirt here for a limited time!!)

MoCCA Fest takes place from 11am to 6pm on April 5th & 6th at the 69th Regiment Armory (68 Lex. btwn 25th & 26th Streets) in New York. Come find me at table D22 1/2B.

See you this weekend!

I’m going to be showing at MoCCA Fest in New York this weekend, and I’m bringing some early Outer States merch with me!

Maps of Outer States Manhattan (folded up like subway maps, of course) will be available, as will sheets of round clan crest stickers. All super super affordable, of course. (Nothing over $3!)

So if you’re in the neighborhood, definitely come by table D22 1/2B and say hello & maybe buy something so that when more Outer States comics exist you can look back at your map/stickers and think “OHHHHH.”

No comic this week! I was overly ambitious to think I would have enough energy two days after returning from GDC and for that I apologize.
Here, as a peace offering, take this t-shirt design I made. Guaranteed to get you into all the hottest & most secret Gaming’s Feminist Illuminati clubs & meetings.

GDC week is over! That means I will resume regular Bad-at-Games publishing in just two days. (Better get to work…)
In the meantime, if you haven’t seen my GDC comics yet, I’m pretty proud of them! Above is part of the most popular one, an interview with Peter Molyneux that took an unexpected turn. And to find the rest, go ahead and click here.

Remember how I said there wouldn’t be any Bad-at-Games this week? Well! That is because I am currently at GDC, where I will be making a series of daily comics for Kotaku about my experience.
The first one, which is about my weekend, is here! It’s about a very innovative and important new game, ALF for the Sega Master System.

Honestly I am pretty excited to get back to playing Banner Saga now that I am finished making a comic about it. It’s really good. And super pretty. Except all the women characters are real weak in battle so far and that is… weak.

Hey all! While I finish up this week’s comic, why not check out the latest issue of Five out of Ten magazine, in which I have 13 pages of comics?!!! One is about getting lost in Lost Odyssey and other games—if you print it out, it’s actually a 3x3 maze that you can navigate. And the other is about different kinds of POWER.
Oh, also I did the cover, which you can see above. Get it! And see you soon with a new Bad-at-Games!

Maybe someday we’ll be lucky enough to have a rad robot lady as the actual president of the United States.
