|Tycho and Gabe from Webcomic Penny Arcade|
Tycho's Tweet: Kiko and I have been paying an unorthodox wargame. Trying to decide if it's a work of genius, or merely "brilliant." http://t.co/b0dEbUl
The tweet of praise from one the video gaming industry giants caused a record number of hits to the MERCS website, causing some problems on the site which were quickly rectified. MERCS is an amazing game and it was only a matter of time before people caught on.
While Penny Arcade is focused on video games, Tycho and Gabe are also miniature wargamers. Here are a couple of wargaming comics from Penny Arcade:
- A World Record
- Where The Toys Are, Part One
- With Apologies to Wilde
- Do Not Want
- The Ecology Of The Loser
So MERCS and the team have received some much appreciated, and well deserved recognition!
