The long dreaded nuclear conflict has begun and Dublin City has been torn apart, shattered, overrun by things that shouldn’t be real. For just a few, survival is possible inside the depths of the Ballsbridge Inn, away from the dead that aren’t dead. The trade hall and the games room are crawling with con-goers stricken by a virus that resembles the zombie virus depicted in many tv shows, comics and movies.
This can’t be real but it seems ArcadeCon has just entered the Apocalypse.
Only 5 people are left, and although they have all given serious thought to what they would do if the Zombie Apocalpyse started, they never factored in ArcadeCon.
- who are these people?
- What do they look like?
- What weapons do they have? If any?
On the Sunday of ArcadeCon, the 15th of July, starting at 10am, we will draw this comic in ONE day. Seven hours to draw and write a comic. Can we do it?
First of all we need our characters. Their names are:
- Anna Harris
- Jamie O’ Rourke
- Ruairi Hill
- Tadhg Renner
- Dani Martin
We need YOU to give us biographies for each of these characters.
- Weapons (Yes/No)
(If yes what?)
- Short backstory
+ where they’re from?
+ are they staying at the hotel?
+Do they know Dublin City well?
+Any special talents?
Later on, when we have the biographies, we will need YOU once again to give us quick outlines on what they look like. A quick sketch will do.
-Style of clothes?
-Anything you think would be interesting and set this character apart?
First we will be looking for the biographies for these characters to give the artisically talented something to work with.
Send your biographies to email@example.com by the 31st of May and then we’ll start the mayhem.
While ArcadeCon is about having fun, meeting new people and being the biggest geeks in the world, we also try to help others. This year we’re working with Munster Dog Rescue, and here you will find some of the items we’ve gathered for our Charity Auction so far!

The year is 1946, the sleepy village of Blackvale is returning to normality after the second World War saw many of its young men and women leave to do their part in the battle.
Situated on the moores of Scottish Highlands, the town is steeped in local history and lore and as a dark and heavy fog begins to settle on the sleepy village, the residents are about to realise that there is always truth to the old legends as a dark and malevolent creature stirs from it’s slumber and hungers for death…
Places in this game are limited and players will be picked randomly based on the audience who show up.

Escape from Raccoon City
A Survival Horror game by Declan Doody
Inspired by Capcom’s Resident Evil series.
Four days have passed since the first sign of the infection became known…within eight hours the population of Raccoon City fell victim to the disease, turning ordinary people into twisted shells hell-bent on feasting on the flesh of the living.
Within fifty hours both the police and the military who were sent in as backup were overrun by the hordes of the walking dead.
Now the city crawls with rotting flesh, gargled screams and the sound of slow steps shuffling in the darkness. You are one of the few survivors, finding refuge in the upper floor of a discount store, you and the others must work together to fight off the hordes but with little food and constant attacks, nerves and tempers are wearing thin.
Players will assume the role of survivors in a zombie apocalypse inspired by the events of the Resident Evil series. Players will compete for survival with only one person being able to survive and win the game.
Places in this game are limited and will be based on a first come first served basis.
