Welcome to Folks of the Forum

Many noteworthy Internet phenomenons create communities of fans around them, with the most popular attracting die-hard legions ready to do the bidding of their creators. This comic is about those fans. With illustrations inspired by the popular webcomic "The Order of the Stick™", Folks of the Forum follows the story of two newbies as they join the "LFTO Networking" community at the "Red vs. Blue" website.

Expansion Project #2: Leet Wars

Hey, you guys remember back in January when I said I was learning Flash? Well behold the fruits of my labor.

(Version 0.1.1)

The concept itself is pretty simple: play in the world of Folks of the Forum. Expansion Project #2 truly lives up to its name; not only will we be expanding into different media, but the very scope of the FotF universe is about to grow. I've got much more up my sleeve in regards to this project, but I'm not going to give it all out just yet - one of my professors taught me it is always wise to manage expectations.

The level you see here is a prototype of the Archives, the node through which all data in the Net passes. It is swarming in Bots; your task is to defeat them while collecting as much Source (blue orbs) as possible. Pay special attention to the bottom of the screen, as I've programmed tutorial messages for just about everything you need to know.

The game you see here is merely a prototype. There are bugs, and if you find any please let me know so I can fix them for the first episodic release of the game.

Special thanks to superjim for composing the title screen, boss, and results page BGM as well as "garratinizing" my own composition that makes up the main BGM. And thanks to reesekindle, who helped me generate the background images and gave me advice on the development process of the game.

One last shoutout to my Programming for Interactivity class partner, who assisted me in assembling the Flash coding and is undoubtedly not reading this page.
