[Wednesdays on Venus Patrol are GameToilet Days, where we feature new installments of the brilliant comic series from artist & game dev Jerry ‘King Baggot‘ Carpenter. You can find hundreds more entries in the series at the comic’s new permanent home, gametoilet.venuspatrol.com!]
The sequel to this is already in the works where K Bros buddy up with the cast of the film “Basket Case“.
The Kuatos will still take care of mind bending & lock picking, leaving Belial to do all the climbing & eviscerating. The whole thing will be done with stop-motion animation, and will make me a fucking billionaire.
Finally it can be told: I’m super pleased to announce that one of the many new additions to the site I’ve been ultra-quietly toiling on over the past month is this: Venus Patrol is now the new home of GameToilet, the ultra-brilliant games comic series from artist & game dev Jerry ‘King Baggot‘ Carpenter.
For the past couple years, Carpenter has been concocting and scribbling down in his inimitable style as much as a new videogame idea every single day, with a total count now well past 500. They’re occasionally topical, sometimes profane, but always incredibly funny and too-clever by half, and each ache to be actually brought to life as a real, playable game.
What I love about them most, though, is that they’re all very happily hyper-aware of wider culture: Carpenter’s the only person I know who’d devote an entire week to creating Yo La Tengo-related games, or casually tossing out Tarkovsky & Gaspar Noe platformers or Michael Haneke hidden-object games or David Lynch-themed brawlers.
While the bulk of GameToilet’s move-in to its new digs is already complete, there’s still a bit of sweeping up to do. There are actual playable games like the above Inch High C.S.I. — which I had the distinct, uh… honor? of being the title-corpse for — that need to be re-embedded, and a few formatting issues that need to be sorted, as we start to roll out new semi-mostly-regular comics in the coming weeks & months.
But until then, you can flush away a few hours by wending your way back through the archives via its new permanent home at gametoilet.venuspatrol.com, or by theme, like his Film Games section or the aptly-titled best-of-the-best section, ‘Floaters‘. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Enjoy the last one drawn on lined paper – I’m going out this lunchtime to find a fancy notebook with the stabilisers taken off. And then I’m going to Take The Toilet for a Trip somewhere where the air is fresh with scented pine !

But the Big Question is can I build this in time for next wednesday ? HMMMNNNNNNNN..
and you’d never have to worry about paying any copywright for the IP – because look – Waddington’s certainly never gave a shit right ?
QUICK GO VOTE THAT SHIT UP BEFORE IT GET BLAMMED :O
Poor old ‘Frosty Balls’ – hosted on the now defunct gamejacket site, which means all the sites that hosted it get blankity blank rather than a game. So Hey – I’ve re-uploaded it and added a moustache and a wolly hat for posterity !
I made the snow sounds on this by twisting sheet polysyrene into the mic ! #foliofailio
So sitting on the loo recently I’ve been banging out some of the things I’d be probably be making now if I wasn’t drawing football boots (and probably be getting bid of up to 75 pound a pop for on FGL :P )
this would be a lot like my Advent game from last year (linked downstairs) but MUCH MUCH harder to make. Like the angled shooting on this one anyway..
I like this guy’s one-piece, and would enjoy animating all the birds on this one.
Came very close to actually making this – I’d like the joke that when you opened door 24, the only difference would be that TWO elves fell to their death. ho Ho Ho
I bet someone’s already done this. Easy money !
This would be a cock to code, but christmas trees are nice to draw, and what is more festive than bomb disposal ? And now a little tale to get you in the mood for December…
Here’s the link to last years GameToilet xmas game – which probably doesn’t know what month it is so you’ll get ALL TEH LAZERS. What a mess !
And this a link to the best christmas game anyone ever made. Don’t bother trying to make something better – it can’t be done ! Hail King FERRY
The exciting new word game for meeting-phobic fidgets ! This would be a horrible bastard of an interface, but I’ve done enough R&D on this one in the field this year to know I could pull it off. Plus I like the idea of factoring in ‘drink leakage’ into the game engine.
