Dig Dug: A Tragedy by kevinbolk Dig Dug: A Tragedy by kevinbolk
This is one of my submissions for :iconyaytime: and an awesome game-inspired comic project called Life Meter. The next anthology is due out in September and will feature some of the Four Swords comics I've done here on dA (and possibly a Castlevania comic by me if I manage to finish it this weekend). Oh gee, did I mention there are some AMAZING FREAKING ARTISTS doing it as well? Don't believe me? Check out the gallery and comics sections. AWESOME SAUCE!

I'm both humbled and thrilled to be a part of this thing. Keep checking the site for more info on the book, and if you're feeling creative, send them some of your own video game-inspired art and comics. They really love getting new and interesting stuff. ^_^

the sad irony behind dig dug, you are a miner who kills monsters... whilst in truth you are the monster.

What's worse is that they puff up until they pop and I have to say that kinda dark for a game.

Methinks someone was inspired by the Robot Chicken Dig Dug short, yes?

Also, Pooka appears in the first Pac-Man World game for PS1, which adds to the proof that Dig Dug is a brutal murderer sent by the government to cleanse the island of monsters so they can build upon it and make vast amounts of money off the land.

Or am I just overanalyzing things? :lol:

Excellent work! I love the Dig Dug games, but I always found the cutesy graphics and the brutal manner of executing enemies a strange mix. This really made me laugh, so thanks!

Dig Dug: the story.
Some asshole with his bicycle pump and Halloween space suit jumps into a hole to horrifically murder everything in sight.
Ah childhood! :D

Heh.. Now its time for mine!: some 21-25 year old man lives on an Island where monsters terorize the islanders decides to get revenge by grabing a modified bycicle pump and a drill and finds the monsters underground a pops them or diggs around the island part and sinks them.

What's really horrible, is when you stop pumping a little to let them live and suffer, just a bit longer, until you finish them off!

Sometimes, when I play that game, I feel sorry for my enemies, because I can't help but imagine pumping little helpless (But fire breathing) dragons full of air until they explode, and their guts fly everywhere. O.e
