borderworld

“Gordon Freeman, in the flesh - or, rather, in the hazard suit. I took the liberty of relieving you of your weapons. Most of them were government property. As for the suit, I think you’ve earned it. The borderworld, Xen, is in our control, for the time being … thanks to you. Quite a nasty piece of work you managed over there; I am impressed. That’s why I’m here, Mr. Freeman. I have recommended your services to my … employers, and they have authorized me to offer you a job. They agree with me that you have limitless potential. You’ve proved yourself a decisive man so I don’t expect you’ll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you’re interested, just step into the portal and I will take that as a yes. Otherwise, well, I can offer you a battle you have no chance of winning … rather an anticlimax after what you’ve just survived. Time to choose …”

Here’s something we haven’t shown yet. It’s a comic called Borderworld that we draw and publish one page at the time in swedish fantasy/adventure/sci-fi anthology called UTOPI (utopia).

It originates from an early board game concept we worked on a few years back, before we started PEOW!. The game was basically Parcheesy or Ludo or Fia med knuff in swedish, but with a twist. Each color had four different teams you could choose to play and each of the teams had their own play strengths. 2/3 of us play Magic so some of the mechanics were borrowed from that.

Anywho, it turned out that the game was really crappy (there’s soooo much work behind a well balanced game we found out) but the teams were kinda cool so we made a comic out of it!

We’re thinking of maybe translate this to english so more peeps can enjoy it, any interest? (We’ll probably do it anyway!)
