The Unreal Life: “The Lonely Infestor”

Yes, I’m bringing back my webcomic today, because I thought of a strip I wanted to do, and I spent the better part of yesterday bringing it to life. It focuses on my favorite game of the moment, Starcraft 2, and if you’re a fan hopefully you’ll appreciate it.

Usually my comics are one panel, but this one is about nine, and hopefully you guys will like it despite my clear lack of artistic abilities. For the uninitiated to the world of Starcraft, I’ve posted a bit of an explanation below, along with the strip itself. Enjoy!

Alright, so the Infestor is a support unit for the Zerg in Starcraft 2, and has three spells, Neural Parasite (mind control), Fungal Growth (paralyzes and kills) and Spawn Infested Terran (creates a fighting unit with a very short lifespan), all of which you’ll see demonstrated below as the Infestor battles loneliness.

  1. I’m probably the only person who reads you blog regularly and hasn’t played a Starcraft game and I obviously didn’t get what the hell is the idea behind that comic but I just want to say that your art style is interesting and suits the comic well 🙂

  2. Like Rob, I don’t play Starcraft so I don’t really know what’s going on so your explanation was very helpful. Coicidentally, I WAS reading the Starcraft Wiki yesterday and saw the Spawn Infested Terran unit so I kind of got it. Either way, I like the comic and think its clever. The last panel definitely made me laugh.
