Ultra Publications Updates - Podcast Episode 5: "History of Final Fantasy", Plus More CTU Progress!!!

Podcast Episode 5: "History of Final Fantasy", Plus More CTU Progress!!! 

The Fifth Episode of the Ultra Publications Revue is finally here! This time, we take a very in depth look at the damn-near complete history of all things Final Fantasy, creating an epic episode that goes over two whole hours. Sorry about the length, we should have realized in advance it'd be extra long and instead did it as two parts. Next time we might be interviewing Andrew Dobson, the creator of comics such as Alex Ze Pirate and Formera, if we can get our schedules to properly align.

In other news, of a more CTU oriented nature, the current progress of Episode 20 currently stands at a whopping 75%! Yes, I know the podcast says it's currently at 45%; there were some technical difficulties encountered in getting it up, and progress continued while we ironed those out. I would like to say that the episode will be out before the end of next week, but time frame estimates that come from me are pratically like hexes almost. So instead, I'll say it'll be done when it's done.

CTU Episode 20 at 40%, Plus Other News 

Episode 20 of Chrono Trigger Unglued is now at 40% complete. This is a little slower than I might have liked, and I guess I can blame that in part on some distractions (such as Final Fantasy XIII), but part of it has been that even in the simplest of episodes there can be parts that take a lot of time make everything happen. It never ceases to amaze me how large chunks of the episode can be done in short amounts of time, but parts that last maybe 10 seconds can multiple nights to make. Such is the way of making animation in flash, but I actually knew this particular part was going to be brutal well in advance. I guess once you've worked on flash long enough you begin to get a sixth sense for these sorts of things. If this episode isn't out before the end of next month, I probably deserve to be shot (I hope I don't regret saying that).

Speaking of my love for Final Fantasy XIII, the Fifth Podcast Episode will be out soon and is about the history of Final Fantasy. I just have to edit all together and stuff. I wonder if anyone ever actually listens to these?

Progress on CTU Episode 20, Plus Episode 4 of the Podcast 

Episode 4 of the Ultrapublications Revue is finally here, and it's all about Chrono Trigger Unglued! While there is a lot of useful information in this one, especially that many people not in production might not be privy to, I realize now when I relisten to it that I could have filled up an entire extra episode with stuff I wish I had talked about. Perhaps some time in the far off future we'll do another episode about CTU, this time preferably with Andrew "Cryo" Himes being there. Anyways, sorry about the massive delays in getting this latest episode out, I hope to have future episodes out in a far more timely fashion.

In other Chrono Trigger Unglued related news, production on Episode 20 is now really getting underway! I've already recorded and animated the Gaspar Sequence, created an all new preloader, and animated completely 2 of the 18 pages comprising the script for Episode 20. There is a very good chance that the next episode of CTU will be out sometime within the next two weeks, huzzah!

Work-Study Has Official Cross-Over Event With Patchwork Family 

Work-Study recently had an official cross-over with Patchwork Family, the other comic by the same artist who works with me on my comic. In Page 59 of Patchwork Family, Jason - while attempting to talk to someone thinking about applying for a job at Gamestop, has a most unfortunate follow up run in with the infamous "Bullshittian" that once tried to get a free Xbox 360. This event counts as an official occurence in both the Work-Study and Patchwork Family universes.

Epic Chrono Trigger Parody Webcomic You Should All Read! 


Actually, despite being involved in a major Chrono Trigger parody myself, I rarely am a fan of the parodies of Chrono Trigger that are to be found on the web. This here webcomic, which I fell in love with tonight, is the second time I found a parody that I whole-heartedly approve of (the first time, of course, eventually lead to me inheriting CTU). It was around page-4, when Gato showed up, that I knew I loved this and had to see more; coincidentally, it was in episode 3 of CTU when Gato showed up that I fell in love with it as well. Anyways, this is something I demand all fans of CTU rush out and go read right now.

In other news, I promise I will start working on CTU-20 soon. Certain sleep deprivation issues that were preventing me from working on it may be resolving soon, I am very sorry that there has been a new episode yet. I swear, I have not abandoned the series!
