downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Beating Up Baddies, Watchmen Style...

A new Watchmen viral has just been launched, hot on the heels of the Watchmen TV channel, all to promote the upcoming release of the eagerly-anticipated Watchmen movie.

This time, it's a Watchmen arcade game, retro-styled like the classic 1980s sprite-driven punch-em-ups. Playing Night Owl or the Silk Spectre, you take on a range of thugs in side scrolling beat-em-up in an effort to track down the villainous Molloch's hideout. The game is free to play: simply insert virtual coin in the virtual slot!

Click here to play the game!
