Dig Dug is one of my all-time favourites. As kids we would walk to the taco joint and play it while stuffing our faces until we blew up just like the Pookas we were trying to defeat. Well, not quite.

Your style is really great, Boots. I'm digging it.

not quite as good as Pong, but I still *really* like it

Great choice of colors, as the brown / "earthy" tones capture the DigDug experience!

as always, GMV !

I LOVED doing the pointillism. I want to do all my designs with pointillism now. Although... it was really hard and time consuming. I'm sure I'll be sick of making little dots soon.

Thanks. I was a Dig Dug addict, too. I think I've only recently recovered

Thanks, Jestik. I STILL think you could try your hand at a pong design. This derby theme was a sign. A sign, I say!

Nicely done. Not all of these submissions are done in the style they are trying reproduce, yours shows the style quite well.

I have mad respect for your skill, Boots, but it had been awhile since I'd seen a design of yours that I, personally, would wear. This, this is excellent! Love the colors, the art style you're aping, and the subject matter. This game used to crack me up back in the day

In for one if it wins and GMV.

I have to admit that I'm sick of the Woot derbies and I don't like this theme but I love your shirt Boots and would wear it. You did an awesome job here with the style and subject and it just looks like a wearable rad shirt. GMV. Great color choices!

Just out of curiosity, is there a video game themed shirt you _would_ buy?

Wow. Thank you. And everyone else too. Your comments are so nice. It feels good. And it's good to feel good.

And byrbwr, you don't know what you're missing. It was a great game (you know, in ancient time when videogames were all new and horrible looking and fantastic). Although, if you tried to play it now for the first time, the magic might not be there.

Thanks, blammoed! I really like yours too.

On another note. People keep taking back their votes on this one. It keeps going down in votes. It's very odd.

Nice choice of style, great design and artwork, good colouring too.
Dig Dug was never my favourite game, but I did play it, and it brings back fond memories nonetheless.

I forgot about Dr. Mario! That was one of my favorites. Falling pills and germs... it smoked Tetris.

I have definitely noticed some of my favorites from this derby falling as the hours tick by. I was really looking forward to this one and fable's Joust, but it's looking like neither might happen. To quote my favorite lolcat, I has a sad

Oops, that was _sokowa's_ design, not fable's :P

Bad! Bad, Vik!

Re: one of your earlier comments Boots, I'm glad the positive feedback makes ya feel good. Only wish our good vibes could bump this a little higher, but it seems like most of the voters are suckers for Mario. Was kinda hoping some more obscure titles would float (hah hah! like inflated enemies) to the top.

Was thinking about Pointillism, but its so hard to do well.

You seem to have gotten the swing of it though :3

I REALLY want this shirt to make it in the fog. (Chocobos would be niiiice too, but it has more ground to cover.)

Thanks, bradyson. I think they both have too much to cover though.
