The first four pages of a long Sydney comic that is intended to span sixteen pages.

These have been printed in the Newcastle University Students Association's magazine, Opus, which I currently co-edit and design.

Here's some nice things that have been said about Sydney Treads the Catwalk:
" The sequel to last year's Sydney Finds Employment, Sydney Treads the Catwalk is a new AGS adventure game by pixel artist extraordinaire Ivan Dixon. Eccentric humor is once again the main focus of this title, though the author has taken heed much of the feedback received by it's predecessor and implemented them into this release to please fans of the genre."

"Yaaaaaay Sydney! This game is really great, the graphics and animations (especially the cutscenes) are cute, well done and entertaining. The puzzles aren't too hard to figure out, which is cool by me. And I discovered the Floating Sydney Head bug on the title page, woot for me! :) Terrific job, loved everything about it, play this game now! Now!"

If anyone can translate Czech to English, I'd love to know what some of the Czech sites that have review Syd 2 mean.

Lastly, for a comprehensive walk through go to Leon's website.

Sydney Treads the Catwalk

The second Sydney adventure game is out!


"Sydney, a bum turned star, finds his new career in the media has hit a hiccup when his television show doesn’t receive the ratings it expected. Keith Corps (head of Business Corps) warns Syd that if he can’t even compete with the fashion channel he’ll be forced to axe the show and throw the lovable tramp back on to the streets.

After stumbling onto a string of suspicious accidents within the fashion industry Sydney and his friends uncover a mystery that could cost them their lives or worse- their limbs!"

I was finally able to install the software that compliments my tablet...which means the tablet wil actually feel the pressure I place on the pen, instead of just working like mouse!

To celebrate I sketched a picture of Sydney completely paper free.

PS. Sydney Treads the Catwalk should be out very soon. Music is done, I'm just waiting for some web hosting.
