GameSetApparel Launches Series 1 T-Shirts

The editors of Gamasutra sister weblog GameSetWatch have announced the full launch of GameSetApparel, with four custom game-related T-shirts from artists including Dan Paladin (Alien Hominid), James Kocha
GameSetApparel is the new, limited edition T-shirt store created by the editors of GameSetWatch, the game weblog run by the staff of the Webby award-winning and the Maggie award-winning Game Developer magazine. The first series of four T-shirts are named 'Games That Never Were', with shirt numbers GSA101 through GSA104, and are limited to just 111 copies each - and the GameSetWatch editors have announced that all four T-shirts now available for individual purchase as of January 2008. The custom printed T-shirts feature noted artists interpreting the idea of imaginary, legendary, or fictional games in neat ways, and are created by Gamasutra collaborator Erin Mehlos (Hell's Corners), Dan Paladin (Alien Hominid), James Kochalka (American Elf), and Schadenfreude Interactive (Accordion Hero). The newest and currently featured shirt in GameSetApparel's limited-edition 'Games That Never Were' series, which is strictly limited to 111 copies of each tee, is 'Hostage Negotiator II' by Dan Paladin (Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers). For his design (GSA102) in the 'Games That Never Were' series, Paladin, who is well-known for his distinctively twisted cartoon-styled art seen in console and XBLA title Alien Hominid, as well as the keenly-awaited Castle Crashers, has chosen to interpret the subject by going for a game that doesn't exist right now - but perhaps should. Dan explained in an email just how he came up with the concept: "I based it off of a discussion that happened at my family dinner table once. Someone at the table suggested I work on games that focus far less on violence, and my father joked about having hostage negotiations, instead of the current form of dealing with them. it was all light-hearted and we all knew it'd probably never happen, so when you asked me to make something that'd probably never happen, this is what I thought of." The high-quality navy shirt (available in XL, L, or M, with only 111 in total over all three sizes) is the result, and interested parties can now order the GSA102 'Hostage Negotiator 2' T-shirt design in multiple sizes from the GameSetApparel store. In addition, all four designs are now available for individual purchase on the GameSetApparel website.
