My friend Shawn has a tattoo that looks almost exactly like this shirt:

That was my first thought. The look and feel is incredibly similar.

Robot reminds me of the one from the indie game "Machinarium", the game also has a very similar story:

EDIT: Oh wow, see other people have said the same. Guess I wasn't the only one.

Well, I was going to buy this shirt because I loved Machinarium and this reminded me of it immensely. But, I then read the story and decided not to get one.

So I bought two instead.

It's funny--I bought this one before reading the write-up only to discover that two previous robot shirts I've purchased were referenced there, too. I'm glad to have all the shirts of this trilogy .

Amazing write up. It inspires me as I start my own new beginning out of the ashes of my own life. Pretty much required to buy this one.

Ditto to everyone's comment about Machinarium. I actually thought it might have been sponsored by the developers or a tribute of sorts.

Independently a great game and a great shirt, nonetheless

The sad story got me. In for one, and I shall cry for Old Woman every time I wear it! Not the robot though, his kind is taking over the world and I shall not condone it.

Oh, and the stupidly large button should be bigger.

Grats to the artist! It had been so long since I bought a shirt here, my card had expired.

wonder if this one will bring the other two back from Reckoning.

Which brings me to my second point: I. Love. This. Shirt. This may just be my most favorite shirt that I have ever seen. As for you, Woot....1) My friends tell me I'm a souless monster. This write-up, along with the one for Patrickspens marble shirt, both got me teary-eyed. That being said, 2) Take these write-up authors and WRITE A BOOK!


Please

It's not about robots - I think his Wilde imagination didn't go quite that far - but this write-up really reminds me of "The Happy Prince" somehow. These sorts of tales just get you right there (points to the heart-place), you know?

Not sure if you're being serious or not, but I don't see anywhere here where the actual game's story has been spoiled at all.

Patrickspens is going to bankrupt me. I just can't stop buying his shirts.

I MIGHT have resisted this one - I couldn't decide whether to mourn the dystopia or cheer at the triumph - but the writeup clinched it.

Wow.

My boyfriend is buying this shirt, and I have a rule that we never purchase the same clothing. But after reading that write-up... I think I am going to be breaking my own rule.

Can someone explain the story to me a bit? I'm not exactly sure if I'm understanding it properly.

The story is some guy is bored with his wife and while she's asleep he's reading the paper and there's a classified ad from a lady who likes all the stuff he likes. So he contacts her and she agrees to meet him at a bar. But when he gets there, it's his own wife! Apparently they were both bored, but they had more in common than they thought and they stay together happily.

My mistake, that was the story of Escape (the Pina Colada Song). The story of Escape (the Woot shirt) is the little girl from the previous two parts has grown up and is now an old lady and is dying. Her robot is also on his last moments of life. But they're friends to the end and die together, but not before she designs a little robot, which the dying robot has built for her, and who flies away on a balloon at the very end. It's basically the saddest, cutest story ever.

Yeah, just try it. I'm protected by this little robot I found way up in a tree in my yard earlier today, tied up with what looked like balloon cord.

Woot, you brought tears to my eyes first thing this morning. Thank you. It was a beautiful write-up. (In for one to add to my giant and exquisite robots collection.)
