Plok, the hero of 1993 SNES platformer Plok!, is being reborn as a regular online comic strip.
The comic is written by Plok's original creators, UK games developers John and Ste Pickford.
The Pickford brothers have awoken their creation after 20 years of sleep. Somewhat understandably, Plok is confused as to the current state of the games industry.
"We are constantly being bombarded with fan-mail requests to bring back Plok," artist and co-writer Ste Pickford said, "with people asking us to make a sequel or to re-release the SNES game on Wii Virtual Console, 3DS, iOS, etc. We've wanted to revisit Plok for a long time, and we eventually decided that a regular comic strip would be a great way to re-introduce Plok to the world."
"Will Plok return in his own game?" asked John, the creator and co-writer of Plok. "Anything is possible, but for now he's got a lot to catch up on, and we can draw new comic strips a lot faster than they can make new games!"
The first comic strip is online now.
