Thank you to everyone who's explaining and answering questions! We are a mighty hive mind, so do your duty by The Helix and please keep kindly explaining to the people who are confused. :D

Get in on the Twitch Plays Pokemon community: www.reddit.com/r/twitchplayspo…

EDIT: aether012 made a video out of this! It's worth watching; I think his voice acting and editing make it much better than the original comic: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mA6hXH…

Check out my ongoing horror comic here!

I can't actually pinpoint a specific emotion this comic gave me. But I do know that this comic is absolutely amazing.

Over four years later, and this is still one of the best TPP comics out there.

Thank you so much! They were really fun to draw. If you're ever in the mood for more comics, I have two ongoing webcomics over here: www.smackjeeves.com/profile.ph… You can see how much my art has improved. :XD:

Why is everyone associating this "twitch plays pokemon" like a creepypasta? What even is it?

Two years ago, about a hundred thousand people played the same game of Pokemon at the same time. There wasn't really a single story, so everyone got to do their own take on it.

I remember this comic. I know there's already a voice over, but I just really want to hear this with a more youthful-sounding Red. He had the perfect weary-sounding but determined voice, if only it was pitched up a bit... Because I love emotionally torturing myself like that. Just imagine; the prepubescent, youthful voice of an 11-year-old boy, tearfully yelling at his Pokèmon, maybe with his voice cracking from a combination of crying and the onset of puberty, to save themselves, until the mob takes over his fragile mind yet again, monotonously mumbling commands to himself, still with that childlike, innocent-sounding tone. It just makes it that much more heartbreaking, if not borderline hard to listen to. Not to mention the other comics; the big words and the maniacal rant he goes into in the second comic would be given an even creepier edge to it. You know, imagining dialogue in some child characters' age-appropiate voice can get some pretty chilling results, e.g. Silver. And I'm getting sidetracked.
And wow Abby is a jerk.

Ahh, so emotional! I really like all of the parts to this and the story they create. Who would have guessed that Twitch Plays Pokemon could inspire such amazing art?
