This one came in a dream. I like to make dreams reality. There you have it.
Elf shot the food.
Says the man on the way to work… “Conjure your own, newb!”
Man I love that game! Wizard is about to die!
Says the mage to the man on the way to work…”I am water Spec!”
Man, Vincent looks a lot worse in HD
I don’t know why, but I want to see a band-aid on the back of that business man’s neck.
Will Quest for Food.. Slay your village’s bandits and nearby dragon for access to an all you can eat buffet!
Vince’s dad seems to be doing well, look at the size of that tie!
Red Valkyrie shot the food!
Anyone else think the wizard has a cannibalistic look in his eyes…?
That is also the name of a great Fire Iron Frenzy Song.
From time to time when watching people crossing the road in town, that “dumm dumm” sounds in my head, and then I hear a voice say:
“The pedestrian is about to die”.
Loved that game, thanks for the memory Scott.
heh, that work dude totally looks like a cliche` FBI guy or something … minus the black suit jacket … Love your work Scott !
omg. Was so confused until Scott’s tweet and then it ALL came rushing back to me. Awesome.
On almost a daily basis I say ‘Red Warrior is about to die’ and ‘Substinance!’. This was an awesome comic. Thank you, Scott.
I would so totally give that panhandler a few bucks. One quarter at a time, of course.
My wife and I played a ton of Gauntlet over the years! This game really needs a reboot, maybe with some RPG elements?
Don’t shoot the food… how bout a Jason Statham looking character destroying a food cart? anyway, I love this cartoon! Keep it up Scott!
That’s not Rincewind! As he would spell it ‘wizzard’.
LMAO! Excellent one!
The Whiz was my first choice for a character to play because of the strong magic thing, until I actually played him. He’s best as a backup (like when three other people are already playing the other characters.)
It isn’t all bad though; when coming across a Gauntlet game that’s been abused for decades in a little coast town, his coin slot and controls will work the best. (Warrior needs WD-40 badly!)
OMG, ive read this last night, just before i went to bed…. guess what i dreamed about ^^ Had TONS of Gauntlet back on my Amiga500 and 1200. It’s such a shame this game never came retro.. i’ve used that line for years, rusted stuck in my head: Warrior needs food, BADLY!!!
that is epic i use this all the time with the wife- “husband needs food – badly” nice memory recall
many thanks Mr Johnson
So Scott, in the dream were you the wizard?
I say that phrase aloud all the time when I get hungry.
God I miss that game… so many hours of sleep lost playing Gauntlet II with my friends, pulling all-nighters. those were some good times indeedy
Wow, I consider myself a pretty long-time gamer. I’ve been playing computer games since the Commodore 64 and console games since the SNES / master system II. But I’ve never heard of Gauntlet. It sounds like the granddaddy of RPGs by the way people are talking about it. Am I the odd one out of 30-year old lifetime gamers who hasn’t heard of this game? Does being non-American exclude me from this esoteric club? Was I deprived as a child being stuck with California Games, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Mindshadow?
I have vivid memories of Quest for Glory (formerly Hero’s Quest), Monkey Island, Commander Keen, Flashback and the like. But when it comes to RPGs, I have a feeling that Ultima VII and Eye of the Beholder were my first exposure to the genre.
What are the green spots on the wizard’s robes? >.<
Geckomayhem: I experienced it (and the sequel) as an arcade game. If I remember right, it had an easter egg that gave you an address to write and get a free T-shirt or something.
Fortunately, there is MAME.
I feel like there’s a mage joke in this too that’s waiting to come out.
God what is sad is that half these people it seems have no idea what gauntlet is! or i am showing my age!
lolz awesome i played this game a couple days ago…. until it froze =(
Epic. Well done.
That’s amazing Scott!
