    best web-comic i've seen yet in terms of using the technology available to its most creative and interesting. The story is a little disjointed so far but interacting with it has been so interesting I couldn't care less.

    Check it out, I can't recommend it enough.

    I'm usually wary of this sort of thing but that was really impressive.

    Cant wait for the next installment.

    Very nice. I love some of the design work in there and most of the interaction works well. Story is interesting so far...

    Why don't more people do this sort of thing with webcomics? This is such a great example of what the medium can really do, bringing some dynamic to something static. Love it.

    Oh, wow. That's a novel idea.

    Very cool.

    Well, I'm on the first page, and I'm already blown away. That has to count for something, right?

    jimfisher, I would imagine that part of the reason this isn't done more is that to create an entire comic, the artwork for it, and then put it online is a decently tough task. To do something like This, on the other hand... well, I, for instance, wouldn't want to be the one who has to stick all this stuff up. That makes it, in a way, even more brilliant.

    Of course, that isn't to say that I personally wouldn't do something like this ever, just I can understand why most writers and artists would want to stay away from this level of complication.

    What I really like about it is that it isn't just a movie broken into segments, like some webcomics that use moving parts are. This is a really new style.

    Thanks. That's exactly what I wanted to say, but I sounded like I needed an arse eel attack every time I tried to phrase it.

    I think why it really stands out, and why I first noticed and pointed to it, is the genius use of sequential storytelling. It uses the strengths inherent in both comics and in web content delivery to create a story that is uniquely told. I am still so-so on the actual story itself, although it is interesting and fascinating, but what makes it truly work is the whole format it is delivered in. Truly sequential art as an interactive experience. Loving it.

    Glad you liked my summary! Any way I can keep people from being attacked by arse eels is good.

    You hit it right on, samishaw, although I think the format is brilliant that any weaknesses in the storytelling are probably forgivable. I think it fits well with the ambiance of the story, too, as it creates a flowing, hallucinogenic, dreamlike effect.

    Would it work as well for a story more grounded in reality, though, or does it need something surreal like this to make sense?

    I love the idea of overlaying your reality over the normal physical reality. The world as a vast canvas is right up my alley.

    it reminds me of "99 Rooms" a little:

    "99 Rooms" isn't a comic, but still pretty cool.
