Press Start Adventures - 29 - "Shoplifter"

Vlad is forced to brave the self-checkout lane at Occult Mart.

Featuring the voice of David Humphrey (SONIC ADVENTURE 2), the original Shadow the Hedgehog!

"Press Start Adventures" is a monthly animated series that follows the live-action videogame parody movie "Press Start" and leads up to the events of "Press Start 2 Continue".



deja vu

So many times this has happened to me....be warned...those self checkouts are evil!


im so glad i havent used 1 of those things yet
thanks for the preview lol

Amazing as always.

Will the art style turn heads? No. Are the characters original? No. Is it one of the best-written series on NG? Yes, a million times yes!

Ed, you're a fantastic comedy writer with a god-given talent to seamlessly merge the silly, unrealistic characters we grew up with on our consoles with the day-to-day annoyances we wake up to constantly.

tl;dr: I'm surprised you haven't been offered a better gig yet, but I am glad you're still giving us the PS:A episodes we all crave here at NG. :)

DarkMazeStudios responds:

I can't take the credit for the writing -- that would be the incomparable Kevin Folliard!

David Humphrey?

I am glad this great series is getting more publicity especially when you consider it got the original Shadow the Hedgehog voice to do it! I simply enjoyed watching this, as it takes the standard notion of a simple idea and imposes it on supernatural creatures. The voice work is nice of course for everybody. While the animation is cheesy, some of the transitions are pretty good. I think we can all relate to stupid machines like this that just don't work at the grocery store. It's a funny idea executed well.
