There I was at Nivlek's Arcade looking around in the back after playing some of the more popular games in the front when suddenly I spot a cabinet I've never seen before.  I drop in a token and start playing.  It's fun and surprisingly not hard at all!  I find myself completely enthralled in the graphics and theme of the game wishing I could be the lucky one to suddenly find myself going back to happier times.  I get hazy from playing too long and make too many mistakes.  Now the game is over and asking me to put in my name, but I never put in my initials, I put in the letters that spell my favorite word - what was it again?  Ah, that's right, "BAB" as in, "smol bab".  Oh, is this a high score?  I have to show off and do my victory dance.  What was my victory dance again?  No matter, I can still show off to... Someone.  Ah, there's someone now!  Look how shocked he is at how awesome I am!

>.>  I included his name as the artist and YCH offer in the description, so why did you repeat that?  Glad you like it.  Are you going to get one yourself?

There is a story about all that.  

I told Cuddlehooves that although I was interested in his comic, I didn’t want to bid on art that I couldn’t change.  I explained that if he opened the YCH to a flat rate buy-in at a reasonable price, the amount of money he could rake in for work that was mostly finished anyway would far outweigh whatever he could get in a one time auction.  I then told him that I would bookmark the page and come back in a month or so and if the comic was a YCH by then I would buy a copy, and if not I would go to another artist.  I refreshed the page not 24 hours later and found that he not only deleted my comment without replying but had also blocked me.  I took that as his way of saying that he would not accept my commission.

So I went to an artist whose interests have been both age regression and arcades since I met him in 2002.  I worked with Kelvin to improve the concept and make it available to everyone.  As you saw, in the original, the character is age regressed because s/he loses the game making the age regression a kind of punishment and I didn’t like the implied attitude of wanting to beat a game just because it is hard.  Instead, I wanted to have fun with a concept that could be described as “failed to read the magical instructions”, a common trope among transformation fiction, where the instructions on the arcade told the character out right that “you” will get younger as you play, but the character presumes this means the game avatar, and the play on the fact that the MINUS sign is the exact same symbol used for a DASH.

On top of this, arcades used to print their own tokens, so if an arcade wasn’t working right, the arcade manager could refund a token instead of a quarter, ensuring that the money stays within the establishment.  The fact that these tokens are branded “Nivlek’s Arcade” is a reference to Kelvin’s comic book of the same name.  My favorite improvements are naming the arcade cabinet itself to Cub-Out!, a reference to the actual arcade cabinet Punch-Out! and the adorable use of BAB as the initials, which I started using several weeks ago while I was, in fact, cubbing out and playing Joust, my favorite arcade.

This comic wouldn’t have been commissioned if I had not seen Cuddlehooves comic nor if he had opened the comic as a YCH, but now that this project is finished, I’m glad he didn’t because this comic is so much richer in artistic, historic, and personal elements than his.
