Happy Winter-een-mas! [T-Shirt]

street kombat

Are you familiar with Winter-een-mas? It’s a gamer’s holiday that was started by Tim Buckley in the Ctrl+Alt+Del comic strip and it takes place over the course of seven days between January 25th and 31st. Each day is devoted to a specific genre:

  • January 25th: Adventure games, symbolized by a man dressed as Indiana Jones.
  • January 26th: First Person Shooter (FPS) games, with a 21 year-old sleep deprived gamer as its symbol.
  • January 27th: Fighting games, represented by a martial artist with too many blows to the head
  • January 28th: Real-time Strategy (RTS) games, whose emblem is a large bearded man with a pocket protector inside another pocket protector.
  • January 29th: Racing games, shown as a racer with old-fashioned racing helmet and racing goggles holding a detached steering wheel.
  • January 30th: Role Playing Games (RPGs), depicted as an elf-like woman holding floating dice above her left hand.
  • January 31st: Sports games, with a round, middle-aged man wearing a #10 jersey and holding a beer bottle in each hand as its emblem.

We don’t need much of an excuse to celebrate around here, so for the rest of the week we will feature a Winter-een-mas-themed shirt from our merch store, leading up to a giveaway over the weekend. Since today is the 27th, the shirt is all about fighting games.

You can grab the shirt “Street Kombat” here. Head on over to our merch store for even more awesomely nerdy shirts.

And stay tuned the rest of the week for more Winter-een-mas shirts and our giveaway!
