2014: Rooms' 10-year Anniversary
Posted by Euan Mumford on Jan 27 2014 at 10:11am.

Good news, everyone! This year is Rooms' 10-year anniversary. Yes, the first ever strip went up in June 2004. To celebrate, there will definitely be a strip on the day itself (maybe even a full story, that week), but before all that, there's a new story about Dove. A Dove Story will run M-W-F, for the next few weeks. So, without further ado, let the Anniversary celebrations commence!

Euan Mumford and SupSuper go back to Uni

Six years ago, Rooms first went online. Three years ago, the site stopped updating regularly. Now, I'm pleased to announce that Rooms is coming back... as an adventure game.

The game is still in early planning stages but will be written by Euan Mumford (me) and programmed by this site's webmaster, the indomitable SupSuper. It will be set during the comic's first year.

That's all the news for now but as soon as there's more to report, I'll spill the beans (possibly in the form of a production diary.)

The Long Spliff Goodnight

To that one fan who kept visiting the site, even though the strip clearly finished two years ago, this one's for you.

Yep, it's a brand new four-page story about our boy, G.

Enjoy!

Delays

Friday's strip will be delayed as I've been feeling ill the last few days and haven't had time to finish it. Hopefully it should be up over the weekend (consequently, Monday's strip will also be delayed)

It ain't over, till it's over

Rooms - over you say? Hah! Lies!

Oh, okay. So it is kind of over. But I've always wondered what Jules did after getting kicked out by Star. Well, I guess we'll just have to find out.

Mondays & Fridays = All new Rooms! (well, until this story wraps anyway). Enjoy!

TURNUS is live!

So check it out already!

Note: Schedule is probably changing to Tues/Thur. More info on that, later.

TURNUS launchdate - Thursday 15th May

Good news, everyone! TURNUS, the brand spanking new Rooms spin-off, is bursting onto computer screens on Thursday the 15th. The finishing touches are just being put in place, for the website, and it'll be all systems go sooner than you can say "Eveneyecan'tprounouncemyname"(Ed. OMG - Spoilers!).

So, check back on the 15th for the link to the new site and the start of a brand new chapter in the Psycheverse saga. We'll be updating twice a week on a highly unorthodox Thurs/Sun schedule and hope you'll be along for the ride.

Jump Leads issue #3 (the one I've written) should also be starting the same week - on the 16th - so fun times, all round! :)

TURNUS bursts back on to computer screens, with new comic from Euan Mumford and philby4000
Posted by Utterly Mad on Mar 03 2008 at 02:50pm.

How does a hapless university drop-out go on to become a special agent working for a top secret government organisation? That's the question the new comic from Euan "Mad" Mumford and philby4000 seeks to answer as readers are taken on a strange journey into a world where aliens are very real and adventure lies ten years or so in the past.

TURNUS follows the continuing adventures of the popular character from Rooms who served as Chex's flatmate during his first year at Uni. With art being provided by the legendary philby4000 (DeviantArt) and writing by Rooms creator, Euan Mumford, TURNUS is a chaotic sci-fi comedy webcomic set to update twice-weekly on a computer near you, soon.

Further news on this exciting collaborative project and a teaser site will materialise in the coming weeks.

More new comic info for intrigued artists...
Posted by Utterly Mad on Sep 06 2007 at 02:51pm.

Hi all. If you've been putting off volunteering for the artist role on my new comic, due to my vagueness regarding what the comic will actually be about, then put off no longer! The basic synopsis is below (Note: I won't go in to masses of detail so as not to spoil it for those of you who don't want to volunteer)

The new comic will revolve around a female character called Aje who has inadvertantly travelled back in time from the future to modern day Psych. Once there, she finds that, far from being at an advantage as a result of being from the future, she is actually clueless about most things that we take for granted (like how to open a door that doesn't open itself for you) and must struggle to come to terms with her new surroundings.

Of course, there's a lot more to it than that but I hope that's enough to give you a vague sense of what the comic will be about. Also, it's set in the Psycheverse so expect some Rooms characters to pop up occasionally (not too often though, this is a new comic and not a continuation of Rooms). Interested artists should send examples of their work to me, by clicking on my name above or the contact button, to the left. Thanks!

Also, this is kind of a shot in the dark as I don't think it's been done before but if anyone would like to become the official musician for the new comic then I thought we could have a downloadable music track, per storyline, to provide a kind of sountrack to the comic. Anyway, if this idea interests you at all, let me know. Just because you can't draw doesn't mean you can't help with the comic.
