T-Shirt Winner(s)! Also, Victoria Day
The community poll for best t-shirt design has finished, and we have a winner!
With 43% of the votes, Rook's homage (which I can only imagine is named "3 Dogman Moon") was a clear winner. Congrats, Rook!
As promised, Rook's t-shirt will become part of the official game content. I might adjust the brightness/color a bit, as I think it might be a bit dark against the NEO Scavenger UI. However, I'm looking forward to running across my first Bad Mutha in their new t-shirt :)
What about the other 4 finalist designs? Well, it's no secret that I loved them all. So much, in fact, that it seems like a waste to not use them. So, provided the artists have no objections (email me if you do), here's what I propose:
All 5 t-shirt designs will be added to official game data, and will start appearing in circulation among the random NPC clothes and loot. Rook's design, as the winner of the contest, will be considered a special item to denizens of post-apocalyptic Michigan. Sought-after by looters and DMC citizens alike, it represents an almost legendary shirt. A status symbol for any found wearing it, scavenged from only the most mojo-filled ruins.
As such, it will have a higher value than other t-shirts at the market. It will also be rumored to bestow good luck upon the wearer, though there is no hard evidence.
Congrats again to Rook and the other finalists (Chiko, Andrew, and David)! I'm excited to see more variety added to our NPCs' tired, old wardrobes!
Victoria Day and Wednesday
Just a heads-up, today is a national holiday in Canada (Victoria Day), so I'm not officially at work. As such, not much to report dev-wise until tomorrow.
Also, they're shutting off power to our neighborhood on Wednesday for maintenance, so I'm going to see about working on my laptop in town that day. Just wanted to let folks know in case I seem hard to reach that day.
Have a good night, all!
