...Wow, we're really close to 300 pages! I only just realized that, and haven't actually planned anything special for the 300th page... I'll see what I can come up with, though!

Unlike the 100th and 200th pages though, I'll still be near the beginning of this chapter. Those pages were both made as the climaxes of their respective chapters, a point I'm certainly not near yet with the Ball.

So rather than a super long page, maybe this time I could do something different? Not necessarily IN the comic but related to Dot X! I don't have any ideas currently, but when I do I'll let you all know!

Actually I might as well take suggestions for this, so if you have any ideas as to what I should do to celebrate the 300th page, let me know! I'd love to hear what you think would be appropriate for it!

Maybe you and James could start a special playthrough of Dot X Adventure on SkyJam?

@Stuff I guess AND Sterling:

Fan-characters are a bit of a tricky situation since I really need to be able to have full creative control over the cast. I'd also be just shoving them into a story that wasn't written around them, which would disrupt a lot.

How do I explain this... To me, adding characters to DotX is similar to adding characters to a game like Smash Bros. Everyone needs to be balanced! Even the characters being introduced in this chapter have been very carefully designed and crafted in a way that fits them seamlessly into Dot X. Every character needs to feel organic!

Out of the 12 characters who'll be debuting in this chapter, 11 were designed over ten years ago, and the 12th is a VERY special case. If I've done my job well enough, you wont be able to tell which one! ; P

All that being said, you're more than welcome to design your own fan-characters anyway! Just because they aren't canon doesn't mean you shouldn't make them! Most of Dot X started as fan characters anyway- I encourage you to get creative and make whatever fan-Mobian (Or fan-...Gell thing) your heart desires! Maybe one day you'll make them into something that can stand on its own! ^_^

(I love the enthusiasm! Don't let anybody get you down!)

Still waiting for some Gell x Chandelier fanfiction from you don't keep me waiting


@A familiar person you saw:
Nope, can't say I am! It's really amazing to see that others are so invested in this little world I've built!
I'm curious as to what your username is referring to, though!

I don't know where to find it!

Hiya Guy:
Aw jeez! I'm too embarrassed to put that, or any of my old games up on youtube though... Maybe if it wins a fan poll or something, but otherwise I'm far too timid! If I ever finish another game I'll put that up, though!!
