Last October a demo for an upcoming Platypus Comix series appeared at Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Today we reveal its name, the demo itself, and the first public image of its title character:


Allison, the character you play as, is a small six-year-old with the ability to travel through dimensions. Allison is also a complete brat who sees no shame in taking whatever she finds back with her. She's always on the hunt for treasure, or whatever she defines as treasure. Woe to those who get in her way. You should see her collection back home....if you knew where Astra was.

More will be revealed about this series in the coming months. In the meantime, you can find the demo link hidden on the main page (if you need a hint, Allison's forehead is a pretty large indicator). Play the demo and see how many treasures you can track down!

I should note that Allison is the only character from the series that appears here...all other named characters were actual people, and guests of PRGE, in case you aren't familiar with them.

ALSO: Stranger Things Season 2 1/2 returns next week! It's been several months since the last installment, so I'd suggest you go back and re-read everything up to the current page. The story will be continuing from there.

Opinion changed from The 7D. I didn't like it, because it's often more bland despite the animation and the writing as well. It's kinda more like Teen Titans Go! I don't even blame on Parry Gripp's music.
Has anyone seen the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie yet? I just did and I LOVED IT! It was such a fun and heartwarming movie and I can't wait to see more of Sonic in the sequel (if it gets made)!
You think the 2016 reboot is the worst entry in the Powerpuff Girls franchise? That honor actually goes to "Powerpuff Girls Z". How about that?
I'm one of those people that's more familiar with Sonic's arch-enemy being called "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" rather than "Eggman".

As I mentioned, Melanie Minichino should definitely sing more.
