The outside of Roy's apartment.

roy! :D: who helped you win your game?

P: Hmm. We didn't exactly win.

roy! :D: ?

P: My friends and I...

P: We committed a pretty bad crime.

roy! :D: !?!?!

P: Usually, those who play SEED are selected through a long and thought-out process.

P: It's a massive honor to get to play. It's also highly protected and its actual code is confidential.

roy! :D: okay...

P: My friends and I, in an act of desperation and self-preservation, hijacked a game that was going to run.

P: Our society was beginning to crumble and our world was coming to an end.

roy! :D: wow

roy! :D: that's not that big of a crime

roy! :D: i thought you were going to say you killed a bunch of people or something

P: No way!

P: It's a huge crime. Think about it like, umm...

P: Like if somebody stole the Queen of England's crown.

roy! :D: i'm american

P: Then like if someone stole the Declaration of Independence?

roy! :D: like that one nic cage movie...

roy! :D: fuck i hate nic cage

P: Who?

roy! :D: really bad actor who stars in bad movies

roy! :D: sorry you can keep talking

roy! :D: what's this got to do with your game?

P: Right. Due to the circumstances, our game was essentially broken.

P: Not quite like yours is, but our final goal never spawned. Our timer kept ticking down, though.

P: Just as our game was about to self-destruct, killing us and all inside, somebody broke in and rescued us.

roy! :D: wow

roy! :D: how did the game let that happen?

P: Some exploits here, some manipulation of coordinates there, I guess?

P: It's all kind of fuzzy.

P: Any other questions?

Art Fight, by the way. That's all! -Beckett

I know the warning applies to most of the comic already, but an extra emphasis for this week's update on the themes of unreality and gif warning/potential eyestrain. Proceed with caution! -Beckett

Welcome back! You may notice some growing pains in the site - odd code, differently formatted pages, the whole shebang. I've decided to try cleaning up the site, hosting the images directly on Neocities instead of just using Discord links for them (which break a lot easier). This does mean I have to pay to be a Neocities supporter, so again, if you enjoy this webcomic and want to see more, consider commissioning me or throwing some cash my way through the Ko-fi. -Beckett

After this update, PROLEGOMENON is officially on hiatus again while I figure out moving across the world! If you'd like to support me finanically through this time, my Kofi is available there. Plus, I always have commissions open. Thanks for the support and enjoyment of my funny little comic, and I'll see you guys on the other side! -Beckett

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

March 26, 2022

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
