Another one that needs a bigger screen than this phone, although I have spotted Helm's Deep Dish and am thereby enchanted -- and craving a Giordano's pepperoni pie ; )

This is such a rich and complex design. Major kudos to the Spirits.

That's how pixel art should be done!!

(Though as I avoid LotR/SW/ST/GoT/HP/MLP/God-that-list-is-long ... like the plague, I won't be buying one, but art-wise, wow!)

I see a resemblance to SimTower.

I won't buy this on the grounds that "Sauron-as-an-eyeball" is objectively an incorrect interpretation of the text.

Could someone at Woot Command please make these intricate graphic art pieces into posters. They are useless on t-shirts (aside from the fact that I have too many t-shirts already...)


Done and done! ;)

Simply amazing! My eyes are still recovering from witnessing the latest 'Lord of the Shirts' blockbuster. Works both as a whole tower image and the take time to explore option. 'Eyes and Guard' is inspired.

I get that the 8-bit style is reminescent of...well, all 8-bit games, and the layout doesn't seem completely unique, but I feel like this might be referencing a specific game or image; is it?

And, of course, kudos on another awesome shirt :D

It's referencing the game Tiny Tower: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiny_Tower

Or did I miss the sarcasm? That happens sometimes on the internet :P

Unfortunately, if you don't sync the shirt to your facebook account, the image fades out when you wash it.

(Yes, someone had to do a hard reset of his tablet and lost his Death Star last week, thanks.)

Huzzah! I am so glad you guys like it- thanks for printing our shirt woot!

It was amazing working with Matt on this- though he can be quite a demanding lashmaster, he was always a roguish gentleman- heh ;)

A couple floors we decided to cut-

Team Spirit, HO!

That is the grandfather of these games but the reference is to Tiny Death Star (and other "tiny" games) which are basically chibi 8-bit pixel art sim tower games with different themed constructions

...

On second thought, per another wooter's better comment, the base game idea is Tiny Tower

It would be hard to out-dork this, but the sale is young..

I was thinking SimTower too, LOTR skin mod. I'm old school, I just haven't gotten into any of these fancy app things all the kids are doing these days.

As a Tiny Tower player who has maxxed out my tower multiple times and a huge nerd, this made my jaw drop. Amazing. I love the tavern, I love Gollum asking for a ring outside of the tower. So amazing.

I don't have anything clever to say, but I just wanted to pop in and say how brilliant this design is.

Wow, thanks for the great response!

It was a trip to work with Oakenspirit on this. He came up with the idea and a lot of the funnies. I was the pixel naz-, uh, "demanding lashmaster". In the end we both worked on pretty much everything you can see there.

It was tricky to squeeze enough colors out of six inks to make this kind of pixel art. Tiny Tower uses several different resolutions for different elements which I was a stickler to get right too. (sorry Oaken :p)

Thanks to Woot for printing it!

The "Eyes & Guard Tavern" also appears in The Lord Of The Rings Online, on their testing server.

I knew that was too perfect of a fit for me to be the first person to think of it-

Heh-

Thanks for the amazing comments everyone- I (we) am (are) super proud of this one and hearing the positive response makes it even better!

To celebrate your kindness, I am giving away some free TDT tees on my facebook thing... woo!
