This t-shirt harks back to a time when gamers had to use their imagination to make gameswork
, rather than be pounded full-face with 3D realistic graphics and surround sound.
It represents the geek's flights of fancy over the limitations of technology that constrained early gaming.
The tank's blocky 8-bit on-screen presence is merely a signifier for the glorious war machine that it can become in your mind's eye.
It stands for not letting the mundane interfere with your dreams or self-belief. Maybe we're all a little bit 8-bit but dream of becoming more, and that's what this garment is all about.
That - or it's just a funny tee. From $14.99, link below.
