Webcomics are a dime a dozen, but when doodling kingpins Scott Kurtz (of PvP
fame) and Mike "Gabe" Krahulik and Jerry "Tycho" Holkins (of Penny Arcade
fame) team up on a new project, you can bet we're gonna take notice. Enter: The Trenches
is new (like, new new
), so there's only one strip as of right now, and seeks to catalog "the tribulations of software testing with the precision tools of 'the office comedy.'" On top of each comic, the trio will publish stories from actual testers in the trenches -- anonymously, of course. The first story involves an individual who had to test Ken Griffey, Jr's Winning Run
for the SNES. Yup, it's as bad as it sounds.
will be updated on the Penny Arcade off-days, every Tuesday and Thursday.
