For the person that finds ErrorWear’s Pac-Man killscreen shirt just a bit too, like, obvious: LowRez is offering a series of shirts featuring the glitch-out bootup screens of various arcade games, named only by their year of release.
The Mother Boing’s own David Pescovitz notes a.) the latest 8-bit homage tee starring Gama-Go’s signature mascot Yeti, and b.) that shipping is free if you order the shirt alongside one of Gama-Go’s own Boing Boing themed shirts.
Possibly the most legitimately fashion-conscious T-shirts (as opposed to, you know, like, the usual nerd shirts) featured here since Imperial Junkies’ back in January, Australia’s upstart Junior Massive label offers this Tetris tee for both men and women.
You can tell it’s more about The Look than The Game, because of all the infuriating one/two/three/five block shapes, which I’m sure has more than a few of you squirming in your seats. [via Cool Hunting, via Gus]
It’s been some six months since I last mentioned Sega’s meta-comedy WiiWare game Pole’s Big Adventure, and by now, it would seem the chances of it making its way stateside are close to nil, but the game’s continued to be a surprise favorite in Japan despite apparently resting itself on one-off gags, riding the charts for at least several months after its initial release.
Other signs of its on-going appreciation: local top games/design/fashion label King of Games has just revealed its first Pole design (following two more by Super Channel), a varsity ring-T featuring the moose-outfitted Poacher, and comes packed in its own special canvas bag — reminiscent, KoG says, of the ones school gym uniforms would come in.

Kudos to Tiny Cartridge for noticing that Fangamer — the company behind the staggering range of Earthbound/Mother-themed fashion & merch, as well as the newly established Metal Gear line — have reprinted and restocked these ‘Chronometer’ T-shirts based on Square’s 16-bit classic RPG Chrono Trigger, which also come with a separate chrono-themed 1″ pin (extra themed pin packs sold separately).
Above, the PixelJunk Eden: Encore version marked with the game’s various garden portals, and below, the simple series logo itself. Both are apparently quite limited, but Q-games head Dylan Cuthbert gives a glimmer of hope that they might make their way out of Japan at some point in the future.
