First things first, the website now has a shiny new layout! Woo! The old theme was in serious danger of completely borking out the site at any moment, so I finally gave in and updated to a new theme. Some formatting on older posts was lost in the transition and a bunch of older images are likely broken, but all comic content should be a-okay and the site is now more mobile friendly.
It’s also the TEN YEAR anniversary of the comic! Wow!! I started Gamercat back in May/June of 2011, so this month officially marks a full decade. I can’t believe it’s been that long! Happy anniversary!
Finally, the hiatus. I’m afraid I’m not planning to return to updates for now. The long and the short of it is that because of my progressing disability I just have way less drawing time than I used to. Comics are pretty labor-intensive and I’ve already done over 300 of them over the course of about 8 years. Life is short, I want to do other things, and I can’t do both. So sadly the comic has to make way.
That being said, I have been thinking of ways I could possibly do some comics here and there. I don’t feel I can ever return to a weekly schedule, but perhaps I could do a comic or two when the mood strikes. Especially if I make it easier by reducing the number of panels or using a sketchier/looser style. I don’t want to promise anything and get hopes up, but I might try it out and see how it feels.
The Patreon will remain active because if I disable it then access to the library of wallpapers will be completely lost, but if you want to suspend your pledge it’s completely fair! I’m also still creating wallpaper for $5+ patrons, so if you dig those they’re still going. Otherwise, feel free to visit my shop if you want to support my more active endeavors.
I also want to say another big thank you to everybody who still reads the comic, still visits now and then, and who leaves kind words. It really is appreciated. Thank you.
And please remember that I’m not completely inactive as a creator! I still draw and still make cute merchandise and still have various projects going. You can find me most active over on Twitter.
