I would get rid of the barrel as J5 suggested. I like the princess but not in pink. The design is in shades of gray so your eye is drawn to the spot of bright pink. , maybe try red? or something not so bright. Just a suggestion.

Im willing to lose the barrel, but the girl stays. She's too integral to the whole King Kong story

8. Bomberman [Nice and simple, but doesn't translate well back to 'oh hey that's a video game]
9. Marble Madness [Such a fun retro game]
10. Balloon Fight [Mmmmm, Balloon Figgggght]
11. Star Ocean [Could make a pretty design]
12. Doom [lol... so simple]

So as to avoid "design by committee", I defer to the artist's discretion.

Are guns, as a general, frowned upon on woot?

Like, does a shirt with a gun on it get rejected instantly?

Might be the elem teacher in me but I don't know if I have ever seen precedence for this while Ive been in the derbies...

There was a well drawn chameleon sniper holding a gun that was well into the top 20 and didn't get rejected.

Off the top of my head, "Eats Shoots and Leaves" had a gun, although that wasn't a Derby shirt. It probably depends partly on the context ("Duck Hunt!" With Vice President Cheney... oh right, no politics... )

A few more ideas from an old fogey with no artistic talent:

Pac[k] Man
Defender - Defend Ear?
Asteroids - Most ideas not looking like the game itself would be rejected for drug references.
Gauntlet
BurgerTime
Dig Dug
Joust
Q-Bert (Cue Bert)
Centipede -("Scent I peed" is headed straight for the rejectionator)
"" Ditto for "Millie peed"
Pitfall - a pair of squirrels ransacking a peach tree and pelting the guard dog with the pits?
Out Run
Frogger
Arkanoid - (Arc, annoyed)
Tempest
Omega Race - Would one win by finishing in last place?
And finally the toughest one not mentioned yet: Zaxxon - (Zack's on!)

Ooooh nice. I was tempted to suggest Battletoads as well, but I was unsure if that was 'too obscure' or not. *goes to make another list*

Focusing on fun NES titles:

10-Yard Fight - Made me laugh. Football game.
720° - So overly simple. Skateboarding game.
8 Eyes - 8 eyes sounds pretty creepy. CV-style game.
Adventure Island - I have good memories of this one. Adventure Platformer.
Airwolf - An air-elemental wolf shirt design? Sweet. Shooter game with a helicopter but I've personally heard of it before so it wasn't TOO obscure.
Anticipation - THE ANTICIPATION!!! A connect-the-dots trivia/puzzle game. Best music evar! Best video game cover expressions evar!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBNaVhpoAr8 (Ahem, anyways)
Balloon Fight - Yeah, I mentioned it before, but I still think it'd be a great shirt design. :P Arcade-style game.
(The) Battle of Olympus - Could be a fun shirt I guess but I mostly just wanted to talk about this one cuz of the music. :D
Bubble Bobble - Somehow. Arcade-style game.
Chubby Cherub - Well maybe not. :P Platformer thing.
City Connection - Could be a fun design? Really weird arcade-style game.
Clu Clu Land - Rejectionator Bait. ;P
Color a Dinosaur - For those who really want to make a Dinosaur shirt. It is legitimately a game of coloring dinosaurs.
Crystalis - RPG
Double Dragon - For those who want to draw shiny dragons. Beat'em'up game.
Excitebike - Seems like it'd have potential. Racing game.
Gauntlet - Doable. Arcade hack and slash.
Ice Climber - Climb that ice! Platformer.
Joust - Someone else mentioned it but you must include ostriches. Arcade-style game.
The Last Starfighter - What, it's a game, too. Mostly avoiding tie-in games in this list of ideas, but this one WAS a video-game in the movie as well sooooo.
Lemmings - Can't go too wrong with suicidal rodents. Puzzle Platformer.
Life Force - Use the Force to beat the game of LIFE? LOL silly people. Shooter game.
Maniac Mansion - A challenge.
Monopoly - Also been skipping on stuff like this but I can't help but think about the Monopoles in Robotics;Notes. Monopole'y.
Mystery Quest - Hah.

Kay I'm gonna get lazy for the rest of these.

Operation Wolf
Paperboy
Pipe Dream - WOO, Pipe Dream! :D Old school favorite.
Rad Racer
Rampage
Shadowgate - This is one most people have heard of before, right? :P
Smash TV
Snake Rattle 'n' Roll - Mmmmm, Snakey.
Solomon's Key

I go away for one night and now we have massive lists of video games complete with dreadful puns to force a title into this theme D:


^ I think that's a cool shirt and all, but I don't think it fits the theme. You're not reinterpreting the title Pac Man by completely changing a word in it. See above regarding puns and force.

*Confused* I guess if you move part of the g to the T it could look like a P but if I'm not mistaken, this derby would be looking for a man with a pack for Pac Man. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, as I've most definitely misunderstood Woot's derby themes in the past.

And yes, I had fun making the list. I hope it's useful to someone. :D

ES&L was a derby shirt. Black/white derby IIRC. It was originally called Panda Noir or something.

Ha ha! Hint: it's a modern game. It was designed to be a nice shirt first, and a reference second, so being obvious wasn't our goal.

Well, I'm guessing Portal, as that was my first thought-

Mission accomplished on design goals!

EDIT: Now that I type that out loud I have NO QUESTION that's what it is... even the pose of the dude kind of references it... well done!

Non obvious obscure reference alert!!!

It's hilarious once you get it, though.


On your other design, you don't want a big blob of ink on the chest, that will wear horribly. "punch-through" the kid to be the same color as the background.
