April Update

Edit: The hiatus is now over, so please keep going to continue with updates. I'm really sorry this post didn't go up on Monday! I had to make an emergency transfer of hosts for the site on the first, so it was impossible to post an update until the migration was complete. The move should be done now, so I hope everything came over okay. I apologize for any lost comments, and if you see anything that's really borked please let me know so I can look into it! It has officially been 3 months now, so I wanted to give an update on things! The hiatus has been a wonderful and amazing break, and I thank you all profusely for your patience and kind words during it. I know you were all hoping to see updates resume, but I'm afraid I'm not quite ready to return to comic updates and have decided to extend the hiatus a little. But I've also decided to begin work on the second printed volume now that the first one's Kickstarter is finished, so I won't be idle. I'm also going to be working on a buffer and figuring out some back-end things that need to change in order to keep the comic physically sustainable for me. I don't talk about it a lot, but I have a degenerative disease that makes long work hours progressively painful, and has been one of the cruxes of my problems. But I'm doing my best to figure out how to work around it. I'm going to give myself another 2 months and can hopefully return to a regular schedule after that. So, the current plan is for updates to resume Monday June 4th! In the mean time, if you have any questions or suggestions for extras you'd like to see in Volume 2, please drop a comment! Thank you again for all of your kind words, I can't tell you how much it means to me! Having such supportive readers made a difficult time much easier to handle.

We all care for you and understand your mental and physical health is better and more important than a comic as they can be very stressful having to get one out weekly we hope your expanded hiatus is great and you take lots of rest and sleep :)

      1. ROBLOX ROX

        1. what about Stellaris? I think Pixel would like that one.

        2. STARBOUND!!! I know its pretty old now but its still fun.

      2. You do realize Roblox came out before Minecraft, right?
        Sorry to hear about the degenerative disease. I hope you find a therapy that works for you. They certainly aren’t easy to work/create with.

  4. An idea for future comic Persona 5

    1. How about one where Gamercat and Glitch, and either the other cats or Malcolm, react to the New Smash Bros. I know it’s really late for that, but I still want to see their reaction.

      1. Um, not to late, Smash Bros. is coming to da Switch. Can’t wait 4 dat.

  5. Better that it didn’t go up on Monday, would’ve thought it was an April fools!

  6. I discovered this comic shortly before the hiatus; it was a wonderful read and contained some of the best moments I have ever had in any web-comic! Thank you so much for the amount of passion and love you put into this comic. You have a wonderful mind, and I hope you take all the time you need before starting back up.



  7. something’s borked. your facebook link goes past the website border.

  8. Do what you gotta do, just take care of yourself! I agree with LiamThePhoenix though, when you are ready to start posting comics again, some Persona 5 stuff would be really nice! Thank you for all of your excellent work

  9. Glad you’re feeling a bit better – take all the time you need! GaMERCaT forever!! <3

  10. you should out source your character to fans and post them on you website.that way you can have your break while we can get some more gamercat episodes

    1. I think what you mean is “ask a fellow artist to make a guest comic”

  11. It’s good to hear that you’re starting to feel better.

  12. You’re back and ready to roll!(almost) we are all ready for you to come back and make us smile again. I hope you had a nice vacation!

  13. Great to hear from you! I’m glad your break has gone well and the future plans sound good too, it’s a good chance indeed to do some back-end work that will help you in the long run.
    But yeah, updates are well appreciated and have a great extended hiatus! :)

  14. Eagerly looking forward to a return to the webcomic and the release of Volume 2! Take your time!

  15. Hrmm, something you added on the site recently is breaking the comic’s functionality with Comic Rocket. When I view the comic through comic rocket, the site is blank.

  16. As much as I love the comic, your health and general wellbeing is much more important. I’ll just eagerly await GamerCat’s return!

  17. I’m glad this break has been so good for you, take all the time you need!

  18. Please make the best comic in the entire world when you come back

    1. She did that already

  19. Thank you for updating us and take all the time you need! We’re all rooting for you and wish you the best! Also, thank you for the awesomely adorable gif of Gamercat coloring!! So sweet!! :3

  20. Cool, take the time you need. Though if updates do start up again on June 4th, it’s definitely gonna feel like a birthday present to me. XD

  21. Take all of the time you need C: We’ll be here when you’re ready to continue the comic

  22. Hello Celesse,
    Take more time to recover! I must admit I love your work and binged all of it in a few days.
    …But I shall wait for new content. I am sure you got much inspiration to cover in the next updates.
    It will be great, I’m sure of it.

    Take it easy and see you again soon!

    1. So, wat now, do we make our own GaMERCaT comics, orrrrrrrrr, if there is any more, make one like the one Glitch is adopted. Dat was adorable!

  23. It would be great to resume in June just in time for my birthday so I’ll look forward to it! Just got the book from the KS, it looks GREAT and I’ll be well pleased to buy the next volume. I love Gamercat, nearly every single comic has been relatable to me and playing games so I look forward to it’s return! :)

  24. sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo happy to see you again

  25. Just keep us updated, and I’ll keep you in my webcomic rotation. =)

  26. I hope you feel better soon, and look forward to your return!

  32. Take your time~
    You deserve it!
    Although I came in late last year, I’ve always been updated on the new GaMERcat comics and am a huge fan of it! Take as long as you need too, since making comics for over 4 years without taking ONE break is one big effort. I really do hope that your degenerative disease gets better, and I hope that you continue GaMERCaT. And, if you need any support – we’re always there for you <3

    1. I am a huge fan too! Although I just started reading this in February :P

  33. I love your comics! I was introduced to it last month by my friend and I already finished everything haha. But It’s great :D

    1. Yeah I finished everything too.

          I KNOW RIGHT

  40. I just wanted to ask if you were at magfest at the booth for gamer cat, my bf and I got a scarf and since I showed him the comic we have gotten 2 kitty’s one we named glitch. So thank you for making your comic and putting g time and effort and having booths at conventions!

  41. You should do a rainbow six siege one where the are fighting each other with the gadgets and all serious/ goofy

  42. I love your comics they are SOO cute!! Also I hope you feel better!

  43. Take all the time you need.

  44. WOW i literally gasped when i saw this!!!

    1. I know right

    2. I almost cried

  45. You have to do a mini series on terarria!!!! Plz I beg you!

    1. Terraria sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. SHUT UP Terraria is amazing

        1. yeah terraria is cool!

        2. YEA! Terraria is cool!…
          Until you have legenday terra blade, legendary picksaw, killed every boss, you play on wii u so you dont have moon lord, godly flairon.
          But its still fun

  46. Extended hiatus?

    Snap out of it man. That’s how it starts! First you take the hiatus, and that first hit feels good! Then you take another, and another, and soon your popping hiatuses every week just to keep from feeling bad! Winners don’t do hiatuses! XD

    1. bork

      1. actually, she did say that she hadn’t decided the full length of the hiatus and that she would start with three months

        1. but still, she extended it for 2 whole months

        2. Hey they haven’t hit the point abominable.cc/ is in so it’s still a reasonable break. I mean she’s still sticking to what she said. She hasn’t done a “Hey I’m back and starting the comic again! *posts a filler page and vanishes for a year*” like Karl has several times now.

    2. remember
      No breaks for 4 years. Tiring.

  47. (insert happy music with some tf2 taunts here)

  48. Glad to see a little update, I had been super worried about catching up on what I missed thanks to college, but now I can rest easy with you. Enjoy your Hiatus!

    P.S. When you come off of hiatus, can we see more of Nano? I miss her D’:

    1. What about Pusheen I want to see Pusheen again

      1. pusheen!


        1. definitely needs temmie?

  49. We need bendy up in here!!!

    1. or tattletail

  50. It’s great to hear things are going well for you. You have every right to your time and we all love and support you!

  51. Just try to draw something in-between, okay? I mean, you can have the extra two months if you feel like it, but you can always draw new stuff, like new characters or settings that you could put in down the line.

    Also, when you can, please try out the Steam game “Them’s Fightin Herds”, which is a awesome 2-D, 2 player Cartoonish fighting game that involves sentient herbivores clashing for the sake of saving their world from deadly predators. Try the website if you’re interested….

    1. Meeeehhhh too much MLP stuff around the net as is…

  52. Try Pacman! It’s an oldy, but a goody!

  53. You should have a character contest where people draw a character and give it a name and a personality and then the winner’s character gets to join GaMERCat’s gaming club. So could you do that?


    2. But I would probably draw a human LOL

    3. Actually, I can’t draw like that so I would have a 0% percent chance of winning

    4. YES.

      This comment has put me into CCOO, or Character Creation Obsession Overdrive

  54. This is kind of random, but my cat’s birthday is June 4th. We all understand that you need a break, don’t worry! We care about your health!! I hope that the rest of your hiatus goes well!!

  55. Can you make gamercat have a character called Logan make him a tabby (sorry I just really love and need more ppl/cats or dogs)

  56. Your work is something I have enjoyed for years and the creativity and effort required for that is exhausting. Please rest and relax as long as you need to .

  57. So if all goes well, you’ll be resuming on my birthday! What a great gift!

  58. I’ll miss the comics for this last bit, but take all the time you need to rest and I’ll wait

  59. If you want comics look up genjicat.😸🐱🗡

  60. (Put a take a fortnite L here)

  61. I missed my shot at kick start one. I’m not missing this one!

  62. UR BACK!!!!!!! OMG OMG OMG OMG

  63. sorry about your disease! i really appreciate you coming back and giving us an update, and planning to continue working despite that problem is very inspiring. take it easy!

  64. Nice to hear from you again! I totally understand any and all delays. If you need time, take it. Because when you take time to rest, that just means that it’ll be even better once it comes back. So just go ahead and take what you need. You’ve cultivated quite a good community and one that cares about you. So just don’t worry bout it. S’all guud.

  65. so, something’s borked, at least for me: the comic images from at least May 8th 2017 “Classic Woes” to September 25th 2017 “Microlessons” don’t load. take your time fixing it, i don’t want you to stress durring your hiatus, but yeah. also, thanls for all of the amazing comics! Gamercat is great!

  66. Take your time! I can wait until the day before my birthday for more gamer_cat comics!

  67. If you want comics look up genji cat

      Genji cat and mercy cat are on my phone as a wallpaper XD

  68. You make great comics.I have GaMERCaT as my background, and I like the Wheatly in Mario Galaxy and the Splat Squad.

  69. Make comics about The Witness by Jonathan Blow. Once you play it, you are never the same.


    2. Ooh! Also Geometry Dash!

      1. That’s a good one.

  70. so will you ever make movie episode of thgamercat???

    1. It’s called GAmmercAt. I’m over here hopeing for a video game.

      1. You’re wrong too! It’s called GaMERCaT.

      2. also i want a video game too

  71. It’s alright! Take all the time you need to make you’re high quality funny comics like in the past!

  72. …complete and utter rage and indignation or a words of positive adivice for moral support… dam it. I have been raised too well to spout such things. You when this round but I swear if I have to go another month long after the 4th without seeing that cat’s face again I might lose it.

  73. YASS! ur Back!
    I know Gamer Cat and Glitch like video games, and i kinda want to see them play overwatch and Fornite :3

    1. Lol right

  74. I really like the little gif of gamercat drawing, I kinda want to save it and share it in conversations.

    1. it’s on facebook messenger

  75. @ Celesse, first let me say take the time you need. Life first is a healthy motto to live by. Second, my wife and I enjoy your strips and is very relatable to our gamer family. Third, being the parents of two children that suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, so we can surely relate to the difficulties that can come with disabilities. Just enjoy the things you do, that make you who you are, the people closest to you and embrace each day. We look forward to the adventures of Gamercat and friends

  76. meow! so happy to see you back! i would like to see minecraft too but i wanna see more animal crossing

    1. Heck yeah.

  77. Hope you feel better I loved your comics so keep enjoying your break. If you can try ark survival comic

  78. I’m bored now. Halp.

    1. hOi solves all the world’s problems yAyA!

  79. Hello! Since you have some extra time, I really think that you should play some strategical games, like Sid Meier’s Civilization, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron etc. They are great games and I’m sure you’ll love them. Maybe you can even make a new character that plays strategies.

    1. whaaaaaaaaa?

      1. What exactly does your “whaaa” means? You don’t know the games? Then, read about them or buy them on Steam. The games don’t require speed of reaction or “shooting” skills, you just need your mind, so, you can play them even if you are ill. Besides, did you ever imagined yourself being a king? Ruling hudge country, leading millions of lifes, developing and evolving? That’s just what this games allow you. New character? Okay, maybe too much to ask. Still, I think you should try playing strategies too. You may be misundersandig them at first, but later you’ll pull in and start loving them

        1. already did that.


        2. bbbbooooorrrkkkk


        3. ps you made your name just for strategy games and stuff right?

          ……. right? :l

  80. I’ve re-read all of these comics like 10 times already waiting for new posts to begin again.

  81. You should take it easy if you’re sick! Take a break now and then and chill!

  82. I changed my name from AnimeCat because the name is apparently already taken.

  83. Take care of yourself. In the meantime, how about something for monster hunter world as a suggestion? Watching people mistake GC for a melynx would be hilarious.

  84. Hope you feel better soon! I’m New and yet I already love the community and the comics! I would support on Patreon but i am broke. Remember to keep it real my dude.

  85. I love the gamercat!!!! Please line up the images on google to be in order, and undo th blurry!!! The blurry!!!!!

    1. Eh, he can’t do that… That’s just random images off the web.

      1. isn’t the creator a she?


        1. lol yeah

  86. If you’re still taking suggestions for the second printed volume, I’d love to see the events that led up to Glitch living alone in a trash can. Sorta like the story of how Malcolm found Gamercat in the first golume.

  87. Aw, nuts! Waited this long, and I still don’t have anything to keep me running!

  88. I love gamers. And cats. And GaMERCaT! Meow!

  89. First off I want to say this is one of my favorite webcomics of all time and I’m looking forward to it’s return. I also hope that you’ve had a good rest over your break.

    As for suggestions for volume 2 extras, I would like to see stories focused on the characters, like who owns Pixel and Sweet, what are their origins, what’s their life like when not hanging out with Gamer and Glitch, and so forth.

  90. Not complaining but isn’t GC’s drawing a bit too childish

  91. So happy you’re back! I hope all is getting better :’)

  92. I love drawing but he’s bad at drawing!

  93. Chelesse, he bad at it right?
