Isotown might be just another isometric pixel art urban setting lovingly rendered in MS Paint, but it has its own civic history in comic strip form. via

But really, if they were going for realism then Ian's house should have been immediately bulldozed and replaced by a 500 unit track home project surrounded by stripmalls.

the ytmnd animation of issues 1-136 is a good way of getting up to speed, but you do miss the gripping story-line.

i like the animation a bunch. individually, the comics are a bit like watching hair grow.

No 130 Quote: Also, I've made my decision that Isotown will pursue a more interesting and fun growth pattern. So sit tight.

Whoa there fella! I've already got a nosebleed from the speed that things have been moving up to now.

I think this project is an interesting idea and one that (as joe's spleen says) is lovingly rendered, but I don't think I would ever have the patience to check back on a regular basis just to see if the construction crew have fixed the crack in the parking lot.

Fans of true isometric pixel art (and of realism) should avoid reading 161/2/3/4/5

I wonder if this guy is an urban planner. This sounds like something I'd do in my spare time.

I find this a little...disturbing...somehow.
