So I thought why not share the silly things we’ve done IRL that will get weird looks or judgement from regular folk, but nods of acceptance and understanding from those of us that have stuck with HG and their brainchild.
So I thought I’d share the NMS inspired tattoo I got last July.
Not the best photo of it, my wrist loves to change its dimensions!
Yup, I got it before the game came out. This was the first thing that came out in a LONG long time were I was following it with great excitement but not getting overhyped. I’d wanted this game my entire life and I honestly felt like a kid again for the entire time during development. I wanted to commemorate that incredible journey coming to an end with something, so, I opted for something permanent.
Before the game released it got me some scorn from the community “LOL you got a tattoo of a game thats not even out!? You idiot!” etc etc. AFTER release I even got some threatening PM’s on reddit for sharing it again after the post launch backlash, just to show I still love what we recieved and to stand in solidarity with any silent brethren too afraid to speak out amongst all the hate.
Today I can look at it with great pride, knowing everything thats come since and everything thats yet to come.
So, have you got any crazy NMS things? Fan art? Sculptures? KNitted sweaters?! Share em here, Citizen Scientists and Travellers alike!
