Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
New Quantum Vibe Starts Monday! [ Dec 1, 2017 ]
Just a heads-up QV fans, new strips for QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlieu start their run on Monday, December 4th!.
This time around you will notice a slight change in format. Instead of 3 panel strips, Monday through Friday, we are switching to 4 panel strips, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This move helps with meeting monthly budget requirements for producing this fine story, as well as provide a better story telling in each strip byd adding the extra panel.
We hope you enjoy the new format. Don't forget to click the ad links on our site and if you are enjoying this slightly mad sci-fi adventure do please click over to our store and purchase some copies (both in print and digital formats). That's what allows us to keep telling the Quantum Vibe story.
The Transcript For This Page
Now everyone is seated around the table. Eithne is between Kek and The Dude.
Dude: Ok, here's the short version:
Dude: We are what you could call 'gamers.'
Dude: We like to create scenarios with conflict and goals and play them out.
Show a cloud of swirling colors near Old Terra. The Dude narrates from a cameo.
Dude: About a millennium ago, as you measure time, we were scouting around for some inspiration. You know, to build a game out of.
Dude: We had already found your world previously, when your people were in what you call 'the bronze age.' But now it had just recently entered its age of space exploration.
A tableau framed in a 3:4 television screen of Captain Kirk seated in his chair flanked by Spock and McCoy, looking dramatic. The Dude is again in a cameo.
Dude: Monitoring transmissions, we learned about this marvelous mythological future galaxy positively festooned with different races, having various goals and conflicts.
Dude: It was like we found the mother lode of gaming ideas.
Show Fred, flanked by Kek and Adam.
Fred: So, we moved to this out-of-the-way galaxy, about the same size and age as yours, and set about manifesting a replica of that mythology.
Kek: Of course we had to tweak certain laws of physics here in order to make 'warp drive' and some other stuff work.
Adam: Fred and I set about creating the races, by altering some of the non-sapient animal species we found here.
Eithne, Kek and Fred. Kek is rolling his eyes.
Eithne: What sort of animal did you 'tweak' to make the … ah … gluteans?
Fred: My crowning achievement! I actually melded three different species to get just the effect I wanted.
Fred: I think they're hilarious, don't you?
Elevated view of the table, focusing on Eithne flanked by The Dude and Kek.
Eithne: So … I've spent the last several megasecs living in a simulation?
The Dude: Not a computer-rendered virtual reality, no.
Kek: It's physically real. We like to call it an 'assimulation.'
