So does this not have a connection with Machinarium?
Just bought my shirt! I couldn't say no! It's just so cute!
It restores my faith in shirt wootkind that in a kawaii derby, this beautiful, artful, sweet, sad, pop culture reference free shirt won. Way to go wooters! Score one for the triumph of the human spirit!
Okay, the story totally made me cave. I waited to last minute, but I too fell to the power of todays write up.
Debut day - 4614.
I absolutely love this shirt and am so glad it got printed. I'm sad that I wasn't near a computer the day it was the Woot of the Day. I guess I'll have to pick it up for $15 soon.
My shirt arrived yesterday, I'm wearing it now, and I must say that I fully expect it to become my absolute favorite tee (woot or otherwise) in my (admittedly large) collection. As gorgeous as the digital design was, it's even more stunning printed!
WOOT! This thing FINALLY came in last night. I must say, I'm impressed. Overall it's much, much nicer than I expected. :] Good job woot on the quality and EPIC write up, and absolutely amazing work PatrickSpens. This shirt was definitely worth more than the 10 dollars I spent and the week I waited. :D

Totally agree! The print is beautiful AND the Vish shape to the buildings makes it slimming as well in an optical illusion kind of way.
Best. Shirt. Ever.
You guys didnt think the lines seemed kind of blurry and the colors failed to pop? Maybe it was the poor lighting in my house.

I would also love to see this as a hoody or a print!
Same here! How do hoodies get decided?
I've been following shirt.woot! for some time now, but this is the first shirt design that I've been compelled to purchase. Not just tempted—compelled.
Look, punny, sassy, humorously cute shirts can be had at any of a zillion different places today. And maybe if I was still a teenager, I'd care more. But "Escape" is the first piece of truly appealing art that I've seen at Woot! to date, at least amongst the winners. There's a beautiful (and seemingly serious, if somewhat quirky) story—told or untold—in the imagery, and the artwork itself is just stellar.
(Further, after reviewing other pieces by this artist, patrickspens gets my unsolicited vote for most talented shirt.woot! designer -- please keep contributing!)
Mine just arrived today. I must say, it actually looks better than I expected. I love it! :D
I was too broke to afford it when it was new, and now it's gone. Compelled is a very good word, and now I wish I'd given up something else for Christmas. *heartbroken*

Try teetrade.org, wootswap.com, or the random shirt trade center in the Shirt.Woot forum. You might get lucky and find it there.
I didn't get this shirt for my girlfriend at Christmas and now I'm really regretting it. She's been lamenting it ever since. Why can I find Patrickspens' designs, specifically this one, anywhere else?
I keep trawling every day in the hope of stummbling across this design on a small lady-fit, but it seems to have Escaped without a trace =¬(
Thank you so much for this comment.
I just saw the journal on sale with this design and felt the same way, but could not remember the name of the game... frustrated me so much I dug up the original shirt page hoping someone else had thought the same. This made my night - thanks!
