Strife Forever (unrelated to the game "Strife")

Post by NY00123 »

So, I'm doing this 2-3 months later, but it probably won't hurt.

Some of you might remember an old website titled "This Strife" or "That Strife", or alternatively a related site named "Strife Strips".

Basically, the guy who used to host these places, identified as MaverickUK, decided to create related website and Discord. Both of these are titled "Strife Forever".

Website link: http://www.strifeforever.com/
Discord link: https://discord.gg/RMB9z5k
Announcement on Tumblr (made around the time the Discord was created): https://strifestrips.tumblr.com/post/62 ... ord-server

As a little reminder, the original websites used to cover comics starring Duke Nukem, the Doom Marine and Walter Bennet, and were generally made in Duke3D with the assistance of the Build Editor (and other tools).

They also covered contents made by a PCKF veteran member, known as Toomuchsparetime or TMST. Among other things, these covered The Chasm of Strife and StrifeToons.

Eventually, for differing reasons, including real-life considerations, MaverickUK reduced the work on these.

Earlier this year, again for differing reasons (the presence of COVID-19 presumably having a great impact), he decided to bring Strife back, in a way.

Although the original websites were shut down, eventually almost all of the "This/That Strife" comics were uploaded to Tumblr. I further confirm that 5 missing comics have become viewable from the "Strife Forever" website.

The following blog should cover most of the previously re-uploaded "This/That Strife" comics, and as of the last 3 months, also a few more old contents: https://strifestrips.tumblr.com/

I was actually building a backup of the aforementioned "This/That Strife" comics (as viewable from the blog), in the following page, a part of a Duke4.net-hosted site: https://ny.duke4.net/strife/strifesrelaunched.html

Finally, if any of these (especially my backup) sounds a bit familiar to you, maybe that's the reason: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7969

I'm a bit late to this post, but just wanted to say thanks for posting!

It's been a while since I've thought about Strife, but I was a big fan back in ~2001 - 2005. Since then, I remember occasionally searching for an archive or something of the strips but don't think I ever found anything, so it's great that they're all uploaded and in one place!

Going to spend a few hours reading through them all again!
