If you don’t get this comic, you’ve probably never played Splatoon or heard me gush over how great it is. Over the summer I became hyper-obsessed with it, playing it practically every night. I’m even at the point where I watch Twitch streams of other (better) people playing it.
For those unfamiliar, Splatoon is an online game where you play as a kid who also has the ability to transform into a squid (kid/squid – get it?). It’s a shooting game, but, instead of shooting bullets, you shoot ink. You can them swim through this ink as a squid to fill up your ink tank and regain health. In the basic mode – Turf Wars – you shoot this ink to cover the map in your team’s colour. At the end of the match, the team with the most surface – or turf, if you will – covered in their ink wins. Simple. Colourful. Fun.
