In both this and the previous comic, I had infinite freedom to write Rich, George, and Larry saying whatever I wanted SO LONG AS it was in-character for the their characters.
This infinite freedom was terrifying and I was thrilled that I could build on one of the few things established earlier in their game, which was Rich knowing a tiny bit about why they'd want the chicken.
What I'd originally planned to do was to show their in-game characters at end the storyline, but then a terrible thing happened.
I thought of a way to use showing some of the in-game characters for story telling purposes.
And so it was that I was cursed to have to settle on their in-game character designs well before the end of the storyline.
Way to go, ME.
