The Comedy Of The Chimera (For Chrissy)

thecomedie.png

Welcome to the COMEDY OF THE CHIMERA...
It is a comedy as in the archaic sense of a story with happy ending perhaps...

my Sekret Santa was Capt_hastings-Chrissy, who requested:
1: Some original art
#Yes i'd say it's quite original to an extent, but isn't that a genuine modern debate..?
2: A great soundtrack
#Well, it's all borrowed, hopefully you enjoy it.
3:Some story, hopefully of love and betrayal (not necessarily in that order)
#I interpreted this as to make a largely narrative game.
4:It would be great if it included a human-animal hybrid (I like cat hybrids but I'll take anything)
#A lion in a sense is a cat, er a big cat I guess.
5:A chrissy and a clyde character
#Yes, you're both there!

Rated T for Tent because of religious and cult references, and drug references!

Pachalafaka

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 2.45.18 AM (2).png

“Takes me back with you to passionate desert scenes
And it’s there we’ll stay
Till the very day
We find out what Pachalafaka means!”

Pachalafaka (Irving Taylor, 1958)

Pachalafaka is a world, ending in songs. Each song has a different meaning but this world always ends. Entirely drawn by hand, with ink and watercolors, Pachalafaka is a series of game poems, prototypes between comic books and games.

The first episode, “I never thought I would lose”, is based on the song “Stardust”, by Hoagy Carmichael and Mitchell Parish. The game poem was developped for the LA Game Space as part of they launching game mixtape.

Thank you for playing !
