Welcome to Level 30 Psychiatry. After 11 months in development hopefully it's been worth the wait.

I'm the writer and webmaster... or web-kinda-knows-what-he's-doing-guy. If you had to ask the idea for this comic came from doing a more typical game webcomic and realising how insane your typical game character is.

Many thanks to GigaNerd17 for doing the artwork and to TheMightyBox for doing the coloring on later ones.

Yo! GigaNerd17 here! Me and Guybrush (and Box -- you'll meet him later) have been working on this for nearly a year now, and we're quite proud to present Level 30 Psychiatry to the world! I'm resident artist here, so if you've got complaints or critiques concerning the artwork, lay it out on me rather than my associates. Not that you can't bash Guybrush and Box... ;)

Anyways, this one's got two easter eggs that I snuck in behind Guybrush's back -- Otacon's reading BitF (properly known as "Brawl in the Family"), an amazing webcomic mainly about Kirby, Smash Bros., and Nintendo. The three of us actually met each other on the BitForums, so without the talented Matthew Taranto and his pal Chris, we wouldn't be here today!

The second one involves Gardevoir's favorite food: Sandviches. Back when I first volunteered to do art for Level 30, Guybrush offered to pay me for my work in TF2 items. I didn't play TF2 back then and, at time of writing, I still don't, but it was a cute offer! I decided to honor the beginnings of our partnership by interpreting Guybrush's request of "Gardevoir eats human food" as "Gardevoir's favorite food is Sandviches."


Oh, and did you know that it was actually me, not Guybrush, who came up with the name "Level 30 Psychiatry"? Yeah. GigaNerd is credit to team!

Hey! Hey Giga, that's MY line. What gives you the right to say Yo as an introduction? Now I'll have to think of something else.
...
Anyways, sup population of the internets, I am TheMightyBox, resident colorist. Now, for those of you who don't know, the colorist takes the lineart that the artist (Giga) produces, and adds color and shading. This means, not only am I responsible for every drop of color that isn't black, and sometimes is, it means I am literally the only one on the team that cannot add little easter eggs in mid-production, aside from maybe, like, a watermark or something. I actually didn't color this page, or the next couple pages, see, way back when this comic was first thought up, Giga originally did all the art and coloring, but that took way too long, and he's got enough crap going on right now. So, meanwhile I put out a drawing portraying possibly the worst swords ever created, but I absolutely LOVED the job I did coloring it, so it got me thinking, maybe I could become a colorist on something, get my awesome coloring stuff out, while not having to torture myself with bad lineart. And then Giga said that he and Guy had been thinking about getting a colorist and I was all "Holy ****!" So that's why the coloring here is terrible, I mean different.
As an extra tidbit, I also write a ongoing, yet currently on hiatus, youtube series, The Video Game Rap Battle Tournament, so look that up. I'm allowed to advertise things in the comments cause I'm the ****ing colorist. Funnily enough, the voices are (mostly) done by Giga, so that's cool.
And that's all I have to say, uh, tip your waitresses, your taxi drivers and everyone you can find with a tip jar. Unless they suck. Peace.

About time. Sweet work, can't wait to see where this goes.

How often do you think you'll update this? Just so I know what day to check back.

It'd probably be a good idea to put that in, like, the banner, or something.

So, now I can comment on this again. I have to say, everyone works in unison very well.

If you don't remember me, I'm that guy who came up with the Waddle Dee comic and a few others...

I'm working on a guest comic regarding the Waddle Dee, and I'll let you know when I finish.

Hey, nice to see you again, DryKirby! (have you ever noticed that your initials spell DK64?) The Waddle Dee comic's probably the next one we're gonna complete, so expect to see it in full-fledged blazing glory in a few months!

But seriously, I must thank you again for that amazing idea. Great stuff, man! :D
DryKirby64 (Guest) edit delete reply
(Yeah, I know)

I guess if you're doing the Waddle Dee comic, I'll make a new one. I was thinking Classic Sonic.

That doesn't mean you can't do the Waddle Dee comic yourself, too! We always appreciate fanart! ;)
DryKirby64 (Guest) edit delete reply
Speaking of fanart, just want to say I finished a guest comic. Should I email it to you?
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
GigaNerd17
Sure thing! You know where to e-mail to?
DryKirby64 (Guest) edit delete reply
...No. ._.

Seeing as you're on BitF you can send it to any of us through a PM there. You can also register a comic fury account and then PM it to us but that'd be unesseary.

...Actually, that might be necessary. DryKirby was banned from the forums because he was under 13, remember?

So I guess you can just make a quick ComicFury account and PM it to Guybrush.

@Guybrush: Nope, I got banned. Why do you think I never update anymore? :p

@Giga: Done and done.

I wondered. Guess I should keep a closer eye on stuff.

Glad you've got your own site now. I think this is an intresting idea, and I liked where you went with your scripts...

Yeah, I'll watch this one.

the beginning in a, so far, amazing comic strip. I speak from the future.

Whoooa!! This is like the ultimate video game cross over comic!!!! Subbed!!!

This is instant win just for having a Gardevoir as a main character, and once more for having pretty much every other video game character. I'll just see where this goes from here.
Ultragamer42 edit delete reply
I'm surprised nobody made the half-immature joke of
"Gardevoir has a delicious.... Sandvich."

This is very promising. Sanity doesn't work with video game characters?

Is it bad that I understood the ICP reference?

Here I go again. Another webcomic to read through. This one has an interesting premise.

Does Ellis really need therapy? He always seemed like such a happy guy to me. Just get him a parrot.
