[Note: I usually make
this these posts a while in advance, so I forgot to mention that “Damania” will go on a brief hiatus for the next week or so (and there will be ‘normal’ art posts instead), but “Damania” will return in a slightly different form….]
Well, I still don’t seem to be feeling hugely artistic at the moment (and I still seem to be more fascinated with computer games than usual too). So, for today, there’s a “Damania” Comic I made a while ago as well as some frames and screenshots from a fairly short “Damania” – themed ‘game’ I made when I was messing around with the free version of an excellent program called “Adventure Maker“.
This program is extremely intuitive and easy to use (and there’s no programming in it :) You just literally add hotspots to still images and that’s it ), but the full version and commercial versions seem slightly expensive by my current standards ( $69 USD and $139 USD respectively).
I’m not sure if I’m going to release the screenshots under a Creative Commons licence, but the comic is released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
“Damania – Seems To Be Going Downhill These Days” By C. A. Brown
“Damania – Seems To Be Going Downhill These Days” is another cynical, and fairly cliched, “Damania” comic about modern FPS games. I kind of had writer’s block when I made it and the title is a cynical comment about the quality of this comic.
Selected “Damania” game project screenshots and frames:
Unfortunately, the cursor isn’t visible in the screenshots, but you can expand them to read the text (which actually contains a bit of backstory too…)
The title screen for my random project/experiment.

Fun fact: Derek is watching a TV show called “Celebrity ‘Help! I’m In A Blender!’ “
Fun fact: If you walk to the edge of this room, you’ll be sucked into the cold void of space and be treated to a rather gruesome (for a “Damania” comic at least)”Game Over” screen.
