Q-Basic Gorillas: The Webcomic
and a variety of other projects have been placed on hold due to the exploding popularity of Camelorum Adventures
, based on The Tale of Emily Barnes and the Two Jens
Eventually, there are plans to make episodes for seasonal continuity, based around the various sketches supplied on DeviantArt by a variety of artists.
Due to this, I've been at work releasing as many Sims 4 versions as possible of Camelorum characters. Lemon Witch and Semaphore are already available both on MTS and on DeviantArt for download. But I'm not gonna stop with them. Here's what's in the pipeline for the future:
1. Camelorum Prison Pants
. So the men can have orange pants as well as women. Barry would look ridiculous otherwise. (More so than he already does.) Comes with a QR bar code that reads: "Camelorum Correctional - Delaware Department of Corrections." Comes with a female version too, so all prisoners can have barcodes.
2. Cheshire Pig
. This Porkelain Pal clone object is the unholy lovechild of the Cheshire Cat, Tobey Keith, Annoying Orange, and a good lot of internet trolls. Similar to the base game regular object, but with the stencils gone and with an even creepier grin. He likes to spend his days annoying staff and inmates alike, as none are able to catch him. The cameras don't typically pick him up in their feeds either, so archive security footage just shows everyone looking crazy, as if talking to some imaginary adversary.
3. Ion Boy
- Barry Navoz / Ion Boy of the Camelry. The Making-You-Vomit Avenger is on his way. Before gaining his powers via Xomification, he was just a clumsy college freshman who tripped on a wire at a frat party. Which led to a chain reaction of events in a Rube Goldberg-like sequence that ended with a pole falling on the Gnatmobile and wrecking it - nearly killing The Gnat as well.
4. Beatrice Index and Luin Kim
. Failed supervillains that initially think they're Pinky and the Brain. Become allies to the Camelry later on, but do still sometimes plot world domination (and how to get a refrigerator.) These two are this high on the list due to popular request on DeviantArt.
5. The Jen in Black
. Jenny Jane and Jenny Kay, two ditzy (initially) Paris Hilton wannabes, destroyed a fountain in their DUI adventure along with Emily. Uncovering Xiboruty's evil lair beneath the fountain, they were blasted with Xomian energy and survived. They became super-smart science nerds as a result, and spend more time in the science lab at Camelorum than in their cells (or anywhere else.) There seems to be no limit to what they can (or will) invent.
Yet, they still find time to learn and teach martial arts and other sports, and bestow their knowledge on inmates or staff as needed. They also steal some of Xiboruty's weapons after he enacts his evil plan on Dromedary Heights, and use his own weaponry against him successfully.
6. Maddening Rod
. Carly Rancine, the reality warper known as "The Glitch" and "Maddening Rod," makes sure there's never a dull moment at Camelorum. Initially outraged at having been sent there without a lawyer, a trial, or even a formal charge, she eventually warms up to the place when she's treated well. On the other hand, not treating her well gets your right leg turned into an octopus with cockroach eyes, so...
7. Lightning Hobo
. One of few Camelry members to have never been incarcerated at Camelorum (or anywhere else,) the homeless Johnny Geriwall can shoot lightning from his hands. Has a keen sense of humor, but is otherwise a PG-rated take on Hobo with a Shotgun.
8. Laney the Laughable
. Based on the Barefoot character of Jackie Cuffington, Jackie Regg was wrongly accused of stealing WiFi, and sent to a horrible place without a trial. She eventually found a way of getting transferred to Camelorum. First chance she got, however, she escaped and joined a circus. Where she was reincarnated a as one of the funniest and most athletic clowns in the entire establishment. She uses her Laney persona originally to avoid being recaptured; but soon forgets everything she used to be and is totally lost to her new identity.
She gets recruited to the Camelry by Lightning Hobo to defeat Xiboruty, and later returns to fight Utkitroll. She helps Emily become Semaphore, and gives Emily her blessing to be her replacement in the Camelry's roster.
9. Janet Joblin / Glob
: This sassy black lady, when angry, can grow in density until she is able to fall through just about anything and become super-heavy. She views herself as being like the Blob in Marvel, except "Blob was already taken." She's in Camelorum for falling through five stories of a building.
. Bonny Boggidy drank her own formula, and can now bounce around like a human bouncing ball. Joins the Camelry, eventually. Has a love-hate relationship with Rita "Twisted Noodle" Rigatoni, whom she talks to through the heating vents attached to their cells. (They tell a lot of Dr. Seuss jokes.) She's in for falling on a million-dollar poodle by accident, killing the poor pup instantly.
11. June O'Reilly.
A reporter sent to do a story about the weird events surrounding Camelorum. Became
the story, after she was found to be friends with some giant talking iguanas in their 20s that knew judo and loved eating calzones.
12. Anita Hallot and Gwen Indot
. Cotton Candy Killershot and Ferretslayer: not your typical outlaws. These women have such strange luck, it's downright criminal. No really!
To be fair, Rita planted the gun that made Anita look bad. And replaced the ferret food with nitro-C4 pellets when Gwen wasn't looking. But Anita still shot and hit the stunt plane that was flying too low, which crashed into a cotton candy factory. She just wanted to start a race at an airshow! And Gwen was just pet-sitting. But too bad. Anita destroyed a plane and a factory. Gwen blew up a ferret - and the garage.
