Year of the Dwagon

Year of the Dwagon

by Steve Napierski to Articles

After the huge success of fellow webcomic Hello with Cheese‘s most recent Kickstarter project [1] and the ongoing success of the Double Fine Adventure [2], I decided to share one of another project from a fellow webcomic friend of mine.

Rob Balder, the author of Erfworld [3], recently launched a brand new Kickstarter project called Erfworld Year of the Dwagon [4]. The project itself is two fold. The first part is to fund the the conversion of the first Erfworld book, illustrated by Jamie Noguchi [5], into motion animations using the original artwork along with the addition of voices and music. This part has already been funded. The second part is to create what I feel will be one of if not the most complex webcomic website that has ever existed [6]. This part has yet to be funded.

My love of animation is half of what compels me towards this project. The other part is just to see the new Erfworld site become a reality. It’s definitely going to be a massive undertaking and the web developer in me definitely wants to see it come to fruition. So if you’ve got some funds to spare, I highly recommend supporting this project.

    Let’s not forget that Erfworld affiliate Order of the Stick is the highest-funded Comic on Kickstarter, and one of few to surpass one million dollars, and finally, there’s about 16 hours left and it’s still being super awesome.

    Phaelin, it's true that Erfworld began as a GitP affiliate, I would emphasize the fact that it now stands on its own, for good reason. The writing is solid, the characters and worldbuilding are fantastic, and the story is a blast. Order of the Stick brought me to Erfworld, but Rob Balder and the amusingly increasing number of artists kept me there. Support this dude.
