Wednesday and no update still. Not even a peep on twitter. Whats going on? Did being accused of having a prepubescent voice drive thunt over the edge and into hiding again? Anyone have any info from over on the goblins forum? Or do they not discuss these lapses to protect his feelings?
Basically you're allowed to talk about missing updates as long as you don't say in any way, shape or form that there should have been an update. So you can ask if anyone knows why there is no update, or if there has been a tweet about it. Woe to you if you imply that maybe regular updates that follow the schedule Hunt himself set up might be a good idea or even *gasp" expected. You're then considered a sociopath completely uncaring of Hunt's feelings.
Isn't Order of the Stick this sort of thing but with less drama on the production side of things? Or is the drama now a big part of the appeal?
Then again something happened with their Kickstarter too, didn't it if the comments sections are something to go by.
I read Order of the Stick because it is a good story with both genuinely funny and genuinely dramatic parts. It's not flawless, but then, what is. I don't mind the irregular update schedule because Rich Burlew never made any pretense to a schedule. He's also not running around proclaiming himself a master of storytelling.
I read Goblins because it's a train wreck and I'm a voyeur. At this point, I can't pretend it's anything else. I also hope I see Hunt's dead body peeking out from under it at some point. Figuratively speaking, of course, I don't wish real death on anyone.
