View Full Version : Ctrl-Alt-Delete Animated Series Announced

12 December 2005, 01:28 AM
"You heard correctly. Ctrl+Alt+Del is going animated.

The Animated Series ( will debut in February of 2006, consisting of a brand new 4-5 minute animated short every month. All new material, fully animated, featuring professional voice actors hand chosen from over 1400 auditions. The episodes are written by me, directed/produced by Ryan Sohmer and Randy Waxman, the great guys over at Blind Ferret Entertainment (, and brought to life by a professional animation studio.

The animation will be a part of the CAD Premium ( membership site, which will also give you access to exclusive wallpapers, art, sketches, scripts, contests and prizes. The animation will be sold separately for $2.99 an episode, but if you sign up before December 31st, you can get a year membership (12 episodes) for just $1.66 per episode. While the episodes won't begin airing until February, you can lock in your discount rate by signing up this month.

Why are we charging for the animation, you ask? Well, the comic strip is a one-man endeavor. I create this comic four times a week because I absolutely love to do so. I am fortunate enough to make a living at it, and I do well enough, so it's ok if not everyone that reads the comic supports the website."

wow, that looks pretty good. when i first read it, i was thinking crappy flash animation, but the 3D really holds the 2d look and style. plus, its a funny site!

Hm. No. Just... no.
Really. No.

I've read every single CAD comic and whilst they're fun, that trailer looked cliché'd crap in .. well, pretty much any way it is possible. Save for 'in a world'.
Anyway, CAD has had it's high-days, I'm getting bored with it now. 8-bit theatre is more fun, as is Penny Arcade.

Just.. no.


EDIT: Ok, Scot bit with Ted was funny. But penguins all are. Moment the penguin was gone, it was back to 'no.. just no'.

Ctrl-alt-del is one of the best web comics and always provides a chuckle ( i think anyway)

though sluggy freelance is still THE best :-D

You Damn Kid was optioned by Fox. I'd rather see that comic animated.

Now we just have to wait for PvP, Penny Arcade and VG Cats to follow suit.

We did some early 3D tests for this show, but they decided to go with a 2D solution instead (which was a much better choice, in my opinion, given the nature of the source material). I think the show looks exactly like the comic, which is what they were after.

Hatchling Studios is listed as the company doing the animation. Any Hatchling artists on the forum? If so, congrats on the project.
