Yua looks at Olivia with a frown, brows furrowed. Behind her, Jesse gets an unknown notification on their phone.

YUA: the universe's timer runs out and we all blow up and die?

OLIVIA: Well, that might be the kinder outcome, actually.

OLIVIA: Seeing as this machine is intended to give you a massive increase in power capability as the game's prize, having that function be corrupt in some way would be disasterous.

OLIVIA: Claiming your final prize may not kill you, but it may make you wish it did.

YUA: ...that's pretty cool

YUA: don't claim that thing, duly noted

YUA: so what DO we do about this?

OLIVIA: I'm not totally sure. This hasn't happened before.

OLIVIA: I mean, that isn't true, it happened once... but the circumstances were very different, and the game wasn't as broken as yours is.

YUA: what happened?

YUA: to those players and their game, i mean

And we've finally wrapped up Episode 2. I hope you're all enjoying this comic so far, and I am so sorry it's taken SO long to get to this point. The story is finally underway! -Beckett

We're in the home stretch for wrapping up Episode 2, finally. Sorry for missing the last couple of updates. Again, you can get news on if an update is going out or not over on the official Tumblr blog, the Discord server, and my Twitter. Have a good one. -Beckett

It's already on the warnings list, but I figured I'd mention it again for this particular chunk of story - going deeper on the subject of being in a video game here. If that's rough for your brain, then probably proceed with caution. Cheers! -Beckett

This is semi-spoilers, but I've updated the characters page once more. With this, we've FINALLY met our main cast. It's only taken a year and a quarter. -Beckett

Hey guys! Nothing actually Prolegomenon related, but I did want to throw this announcement in here too for anyone interested. An older project that I made about... five years ago this October (jeez!) is getting a redux pretty soon, so if you like ghosts, houses, and ghosts in houses, you should keep an eye on this Tumblr blog for any updates relating to that. The original story content is also available on this blog, and it's still pretty fun even without the touch-ups I'm adding to it elsewhere, so check it out. Thanks. -Beckett

I've taken the liberty of fixing up a few things on the site, just some regular maintenance - touching up the not found page since the image got broken somehow (yikes!), and adding a few characters to the characters page too. Another gentle reminder that I'm also saving up to move out soon, so if you like what I'm making here and want to show it, even just $3 on my Kofi can make a world of difference for me. Additionally, my commissions are open too, so if you want something more personal, don't hesitate to contact me! I hope you guys enjoy this update and are staying safe. -Beckett

Sorry for skipping that previous update. Here's double the pages to make up for it. Take care of yourselves out there! -Beckett
