So a while back I saw a blog post somewhere (seriously, I have no idea where) that there were tee shirts on sale at target with CDs and games attached to them. So when you buy the tee shirt, you are really buying the game. Since then, I’ve been meaning to get to target to see if I could find any of these.
Today, I found myself in target and bought a couple of these tee shirts. They were on the clearance rack, for $9.99, and not under the sign that said “Wear it & play it.”, which is (I think, maybe?) the name of the game company, but was definitely about the shirts. (I even asked an unhelpful employee, who had no idea what I was talking about when I asked her about shirts with CDs attached to them.)
Anyway, then just a bit ago I was surfing around while writing a blog post about the new Transhuman comic book over at readcomics.org and found myself at expertologist.net (because Chris Lamb had also written a blog post about Transhuman), and he linked to this Gamasutra article about rapid prototyping written by… you guessed it, some of the folks behind the tee shirts. The article is incredibly interesting and well worth a read.
As a side note, I have downloaded and am trying out PMOG (the Passively Multiplayer Online Game)… it’s interesting so far… I’m tempted to turn this blog post into my first “Mission”.
