Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
Referral Contest Update [ Jun 17, 2021 ]
UPDATE: Art in progress
We could use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign. So, we're launching a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!
At right is a "study" (in the art biz, a sort of practice run on the final drawing) of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Scott is still working on it while he's not making the strip, and we plan to reveal works in progress very soon. It will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.
You must have an IndieGogo account to participate. Go to this page for more info on how to participate.
Get started now. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.
On a green world, five figures are harvesting carrots and tubers from a large garden. Two of them are standing close together, and one of that pair is speaking to the other.
Caption: A new settlement on Nyumbani, in the galaxy NGC 4438.
Figure 1 (Sandra): Sixteen seasons here and I still can't figure it out.
Figure 2 (Tom): Figure what out, Sandra?
Sandra indicates another figure, a female, pulling tubers out of the ground several meters away.
Sandra: That gynoid, 'Melissa.'
Sandra: It doesn't even need to eat food, like we do.
Sandra: Why is it out here harvestin' taters?
Medium shot of Melissa, pulling potatoes. She is side-glancing towards Tom and Sandra. Her bemused look indicates she can hear them.
Tom (OP): She said her skin absorbs energy directly from the sun, so outdoor work suits her.
Sandra (OP): Whoop-de-doo. I'll bet it uses more energy workin' than it gets soakin' up sunshine.
Tom is squatting while extracting some carrots with a spade, while Sandra stands by, holding a basket almost full of same.
Tom: Maybe so. We all got our reasons for being here, and it's impolite to pry.
Sandra: Tom, I came here to get away from all the technology back home. It poisons th' soul.
Sandra: And now it's followed me here.
