GameSetWatch Debuts GameSetApparel Limited-Edition T-Shirts

Gamasutra sister weblog GameSetWatch has launched GameSetApparel, a new, limited edition T-shirt store, with a shirt based on 'urban legend' game Polybius available now, and three more 'Games That Never
GameSetApparel is the new, limited edition T-shirt store created by the editors of GameSetWatch, the alt.video game weblog run by the staff of the Webby award-winning Gamasutra.com 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. The high quality custom printed T-shirts feature noted artists interpreting the idea of imaginary, legendary, or fictional games in neat ways. The first shirt, from long-time Gamasutra collaborator Erin Mehlos (Hell's Corners) is available now, and fans can pre-order all four shirts now, with the remaining three thus far unrevealed designs - from Dan Paladin (Alien Hominid/Castle Crashers), James Kochalka (American Elf), and Schadenfreude Interactive (Accordion Hero) will be available for general purchase in the near future. The first shirt in GameSetApparel's limited-edition 'Games That Never Were' series, which is strictly limited to 111 copies of each tee, is 'Polybius' by Erin Mehlos (Hell's Corners). For her design (GSA101) for this series, Mehlos has interpreted the infamous 'urban legend' arcade game, which was allegedly "...released to the public in 1981, and caused its players to go insane, causing them to suffer from intense stress and horrific nightmares." Based on an illustration originally made for Gamasutra.com, the shirt pictures sinister 'men in black' with glowing red eyes lurking in wait behind the legendary, thus far 'lost' arcade machine, alongside a terrified kid hiding in bed. The black, high-quality Fruit Of The Loom T-shirt also includes the legend: 'Warning: Polybius may cause night sweats, excessive dizziness, nightmares, amnesia, uncontrollable screaming or abduction.' Each shirt (available in XL, L, or M, with only 111 in total over all three sizes) also comes with a copy of a 4-page 'Polybius' mini-comic by Mehlos, each one of which is signed and numbered. In addition, GameSetApparel allowing a limited amount of pre-orders for all four GameSetApparel Series 1 shirts, which will be available for individual purchase in early January 2008.
