How To Cheat Death
Hmm, appears to be some kind of ancient code...
Doesn't come across too clearly at low res, but hopefully you can get the idea.
Why is it in French? C'est une mystere.
Why is it in bad french? Because people who spend their time figuring out the key to infinite lives don't need to learn the gender of nouns, obviously...
This is also awesome, but don't know if I'd wear it. 4
Thanks, that was the idea! See my blog for big versions!
funny, but you got the code wrong:
UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT B A START
I always knew it as up down left right a b start .... I think it probably depended on the game...
maybe that's a modified version for a specific game. the official konami code that was used in the original contra and other games is the one i posted, though.
nice job nonetheless.
hahaha. Please try putting it on a black shirt. I would be better as a 1 ink design, rather than being a circle on a shirt IMO.
hey fatheed, have just done that- 1 ink on black, and I've tried to soften the edges a bit too see
tracer, I think I'm probably just wrong actually! sadly it's a bit more difficult to change the actual image...
Sorry that should be see
I think the yellow on purple is incredible. $5 And the full code would be a huge pain in the butt to put on a shirt, or at least in the design you did, and I think it gets the point across just fine.
you also need to learn better french:
"le secret d'immortalité"
OMG, it looks SO MUCH better as a one-ink design. I think you should correct the code, take out the question mark and give the adventurer more of an Indiana Jones design, which wouldn't violate copyright because it would just be his silhouette/ Sorry, i've been watching all the Indy movies the last few nights, but with these fixes and the one-ink version, im giving this a 4$ right now.
really love this one!
like the effert! welldone.. on purple 5
Thanks for all the comments- ginette, i was aware of my mistake as soon as I'd finished (I do actually speak reasonable french, believe it or not!) but as I pen and inked it, I couldn't change it... I put it down to demotic archaism. or something.
I might well do a re-submission at a later date, with good grammar, and the proper contra code
CONTRA! But I always play this with 2 players... SELECT START :-)
The white or yellow on purple is awesome.
I agree about losing the question mark though.
This is good. I'd certainly consider buying a yellow on black version.
Great concept, but I wouldn't buy it unless it was correct: UU DD LR LR BA start.
Brian is a nerd.
A very loveable nerd.
It's totally adorable and I would buy it for my brother.
up down left right a b start is the code for the level select in the original sonic game.
actually it's not, it's up down left right A start.
aaah, ipear, that must be what I was thinking of- sonic on the master system, right?(though I even got that wrong! haha). The fact that I then drew it with nintendo buttons just goes to emphasise my retardation. It's a mash-up!
Anyway, I'm glad people could at least appreciate the concept through my lame-azoic execution. And thanks for all the comments!
Oui, oui, je le sais. Mais je suis trop idiotique!
Yeah, this is great, but I would like to have the real code, which is indeed: ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A (START)
Actually the no accent is the one bit of french I got right!- not needed when capitalised. Anyway thanks for all the comments- people seem to like the concept, so I might well recreate this at a later date with the contra code and some reasonable grammar
