In case you have no idea what all this IWAD stuff is about (and I'm sure you probably don't care), let me explain.WARNING: DUMB
[Spoilers in square brackets]
It's about human/sponge hybrid slave children, ruled by a giant sea sponge named Squirt
The children came from a robot apocalypse which went wrong when the robots in question depleted the Earth's resources, creating a second apocalypse. Before they disappeared, they created the tyrannical Squirt and performed experiments on children turning them into the half sea sponge abominations they are.]
After years of blind servitude, a Drink
slave decided they don't have to take that shit and from their anger, summons a demon clown (Tickles
Sounds pretty stupid, right?
It's going to be an allegory for child abuse and divorce, each "human" character is affected by/represents a mental illness caused by/connected to abuse. Here's some examples...These are only the characters fleshed out as of now. There will be updates.
Drink #274: Anxiety (Causing them to hold back a lot during opportune moments.)Wash #???
: Stockholm syndrome (She's constantly trying to be better for Squirt to the point of insanity, even becoming a straight-up traitor at times.)Lunch #081
: Paranoid personality disorder + PTSD (He's an expired Lunch slave and due to be fed to Squirt after watching older Lunch slaves be eaten before him.)Drink #385
(other Drink): Narcissistic personality disorder + Antisocial personality disorder (Believes herself to be the best of all Drink slaves the super easy job. Mainly targeted at Drink #274. Militant at times, probably compensating for her height.)
(Most of) the demons represent a reaction to abuse too.
Tickles: Anger + Hatred (Embodiment of that of Drink, though held back sometimes by Drink's anxiety.)Nuggles
: (Source, not a reaction) Soul sucking teddy bear, boogeyman-esque demon that feeds on the souls children, Squirt's dragon and executioner.Cushion
: Depression + Anger (Embodiment of that of the other Drink.)Nini & Mimi
: Guilt + Remorse (Use remorseful victims as their puppets. 2 bodies belonging to one spirit. Both in a disgusting relationship with each other.)Mr. Bun
Represents mental illness as a whole.]
Hope I haven't bored you all.
This is my second attempt at trying to do some form of story. It'll be in comic form again, like last time.
Positoss was a bit of a mistake, I had no idea what I was doing, this will be at least better than Positoss even if it's still a festering turd.
Thanks :devaPalePhosphoresence: and little-devil-child13
for your help too.
Here's a sample of how it will look (the messiness of the outlines and shading is intentional)
