From Comic to Game to Comic Again
Guitar Fretter began as a game when I made this Flash interactive guitar finger chart for E Minor. Afterward, I was pondering what kind of game I could make out of the guitar fretboard and stuff I wanted to learn about. Then I recalled - memorizing the note positions! That's always been something I wanted to do but never got around to doing. So I got to work on the prototype of what became guitar fretter.
But I the post title says "comic to game to comic again"... right? Well the catalyst for sharing that chart was my very guitar infused comic: Art Geek Zoo: The Way of Sound. One of the main characters is Crunchy the Mystical Guitar. He and his friend Pick Wingvey (a penguin who is a very talented guitarist with a case of stagefright) are the comic's main characters.
Pick and Crunchy are also the characters you play in Guitar Fretter and now in Guitar Fretter 1.3 they teach the basics of the game in the 6 included "how to play" instruction comics. Curious to see them? Wondering about the new "ninja mode"? You can also check out the instructional comics right here in this post!
