My roguelike tattoo

May 5th, 2012

Perhaps some might think this is kind of weird, but I’m rather proud of the games I’ve made, so for my 29th birthday I’ve gotten a tattoo to represent them all:

Roguelike Tattoo

Each @ is coloured by the theme of one of my games, in order: Gruesome, Toby the Trapper, Unstoppable, Broken Bottle, Run from the Shadow, Harrowed, sick peter, Rogue Rage (to be released shortly).  And yes, any future games will have to be added in a line  :)

A couple more shots:

    Hmm, whoops, just noticed there was a queue of comments awaiting approval… Normally the blog only attracts spam :)

    Doing some google searching there do seem to be some others that have gotten @ symbol tattoos, but none inspired by roguelikes.

    Dude. Awesome!

    When they invent tatoos with e-ink someday we will all be able to play rogue on our arms.

    Is that the first roguelike tattoo in history? :) It appears to be the top hit on Google Images. No doubt will be the trend this summer!

    Wow, that shows some true dedication to the roguelike genre. Looking forward to seeing it live at IRDC!

    Yo Darren. Quality tat brother. One of the few I respect. By 2020 that line will be super long.
