First seen in the classic SNES platform game Plok!, the eponymous hero has been relaunched by creators The Pickford Bros as a regular comic strip.

Starting today, and published exclusively on the Zee-3 website, Plok The Exploding Man will follow the adventures of Plok as he wakes up after 20 years of sleep to discover that the modern landscape of video games is not quite what he expected it to be.

Plok comic strips will appear at www.zee-3.com/plok/

The Pickford Bros, John Pickford and Ste Pickford, are veteran indie game developers from the UK. Their most recent release was the BAFTA nominated iOS game Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint. They are currently working on three new iOS titles.

“We are constantly being bombarded with fan-mail requests to bring back Plok,” explained Ste Pickford, artist and co-writer of the strip, “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?” added 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!”

Plok was the star of the critically acclaimed SNES game Plok!, designed and produced by The Pickford Bros, developed by Software Creations and published in 1993 by Nintendo (Europe), Activision (Japan) and Tradewest (US).

I was a big fan on the game on the Snes when I was a kid and it would be great to see this fun title return, so Ste and John, if you’re reading this, please make it happen.

Thank you Pickford Bros. for providing us with this information.
