You read right, my friends: Episode Three of "Just Short of the Dead" has finally been uploaded.  I didn't get to test it as much as I would've liked, so if you early players could alert me to any malfunctioning parts or choices, I'd be very grateful.  Thanks everyone, and please enjoy the third installment of this prospering writer's first multi-episodic epic.

Something to consider: Hodor meeting another mentally-challenged individual who can only say his own name and has an intelligent conversation. Like the Chosen One and Torr Buckner from Fallout 2.

One for the files.  I'll keep that in mind when I get back to cartooning.  Thanks for the suggestion!

Tom, you are so incredibly awesome. I just finished playing the latest "Just Short of the Dead," and I have to say, I don't know whether I should hate you or love you. You gave such tough choices to choose between it was often frustrating (I had to press the backspace tab many times until I was satisfied with my decision) and you were really able to emulate The Walking Dead Game's vibe. It was sad to see Eric and Emmett go, but you really stayed true to TWDG. Just please, please, PLEASE don't kill Roy. He's kind of scaring me at the moment with his killing of the hunters and torture games, but I promised Stanley we'd take care of each other. Don't make me a liar. Please don't pull an ending like TWDG Season 1 where a super important character had to die (Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeee). Great job as always, please update soon! You've got amazing skills!

Thank you very much for the comment, and thank you for playing (and enjoying) my game.  Seeing readers like you getting into the journey is what keeps me going!

One of these days, Tom, I'm gonna have to challenge you to a pun war.
Literally, I think the combonation of you with your comics and the puns from TLOU had made me obsessed with puns, if I find enough puns to keep the pun war going it'd be very interesting to see if I could beat my own punspiration!

Hey, Tom, I'm sure I've said this before, but I just want to say it again: You're an amazing writer.

I've been procrastinating on the third chapter of your interactive story for a while, but I finally did it, and guess what? Thanks to you I am a certified ninja/nurse. Everything I did in that story was what I would've done in real life (though it took me a while to make some choices and I wouldn't have that time in the real world), but thanks to your incredible ability to write I was able to follow through on my instincts.
First, I know how to wait and be patient thanks to a lovely outdoor game called manhunt. This helped me and the kids go unnoticed by the hunters. Second, I somehow managed to correctly treat the other kid's burn! I'll admit, it was entirely guess work, but I got it right the first time and now I can apply that to real life.

So, again, thank you for being the truly amazing human being that you are. You tested my instincts, and rewarded me for following them. Sometimes, there's nothing like a gut feeling, and you gave me a good amount of those with the third chapter. Keep up the great work, Tom.

I'm very happy that you enjoyed the story, especially for the reasons you listed.  It makes me feel like I'm actually growing as a writer, and that's one of the best feelings I can have as I aspire to greatest that occasionally seems out of my reach.  Thank you very much for the kind words, and for taking the time to play and comment.
