Quick plug if you don't mind - have a look at my satirical graphic novel about game industry. I originally created it during 2008-2013 and it got rather popular, and it was also adapted into mini tv series. I had many requests to translate it in english. But never had the time. I am translating it now, and publishing it in blog form, just like the original.
Please read the FAQ before commenting. I am trying to translate and publish new episode every sunday.

Thanks for the translation, it looks quite fun and I'm looking forward for the subsequent chapters.

P.S. Loved the FAQ. :)

Thanks for comments.

New episode in, if you don't mind me posting heads up here.

..in this episode, we are introduced into the weird environment of the Bitwisard studio and it's workers, are explained the nuts and bolts of programming games for the early 90's microcomputer, and we meet the legendary Guru_Neutron, the most capable coder in europe. Enjoy and share.

Haha, I love the mix of excitement at games and game making in general, and the bleakness of the working conditions. Looks like it encapsulates well what's good and not so good about this and many other creative industries. :D
I'll look forward to the rest of the translation!

Ok, good, I hope you are prepared for 120+ more pages of misery in the next few months :)

Episode 3: Release party (Pages 12-19). Here we learn about what is the crunch period like, witness some office drama, move onto 1995 and see what happens in the Bitwisard game release party.

I have noticed that 9 page episodes are too much for most people to get into during their busy days, so from now on I will slow the publishing rate down to the original schedule, which was 2-4 pages a week. Saves me some stress as translating and retyping and redrawing text and sound effects for 9-10 pages can easily take all my available spare time in one weekend..

In any case, there's only 16 pages to go before story moves on to the UK..

You will probably get fed up with me if I spam this forum every time a new episode comes out, so I added a twitter account you can follow as well, to get the updates.

I don't know about others, but I've no problem with you posting each time an update is available; it's only once a week anyway. Just do what you think is best. :)

I don't have a Twitter account, but I guess now is as good a time as any to register one.

I also added a button for subscribing email alerts, you'll find them at the bottom of the blog, for those of you who don't like using social media ;)
