player_1: Jamestown Charge Ship Dress Shirt

The latest in our player_1 collection was released over the weekend, featuring Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony.

Again, another personal favourite of mine, I spent days on the Martian frontier shooting at pixelated space aliens and attempting to keep from throwing my controller across the room from sheer frustration ;) I think at one point we placed #83 on the leaderboards going through the Gauntlet on Divine. I also found myself humming bits of the soundtrack while I did the dishes and similarly inane daily tasks. It all shortly turned into a well of inspiration, and soon I found myself on the phone with the guys at Final Form Games talking about shirts and junk.

The art used for the shirt is straight from the ship and weapon options screen, for the Charge Ball ship.

You can get the shirt here, priced at $35.

Coincidentally, Jamestown was just released in this year's Humble Indie Bundle, please check it out and donate what you can.

And Happy Holidays internet-land!

player_1 and Space Pirates and Zombies

player_1 is our new collection of licensed merchandise. It features independently developed video games and their awesome art. Each shirt uses in-game imagery and graphics screen printed in white on black dress shirts. The idea behind the collection is to provide high quality shirts for gamers and save them from the fashion coma that is the screen printed t-shirt.

The first in the collection is for the game SPAZ, or Space Pirates and Zombies. After playing countless hours of the game, I was inspired by a lot of the blueprints for the different ships and all the fantastic background art that appeared through out my many space adventures.

With sourcing the shirts from a local suit shop in LA's fashion district, we were able to find an amazing artist and screen printer who worked in the area as well.

Shortly after fidgeting on the art and trips to the screen printer, we are proud to present the officially licensed Space Pirates and Zombies Dress Shirt.

We will be launching a new shirt from a different game every two weeks and currently have about 4 more titles that will be involved, so keep watch for more merch!

Stay casual, fashionable, and video games :D
