8-bit Zombie’s “Never Say Die” t shirt is so awesome it makes me want to do the Truffle Shuffle. The caricatures are great and the attention to detail is outstanding, from the inscription on the coin to the musical notes on the reverse side of the treasure map. It may not be One-Eyed Willy’s gold, but you can find this treasure in the 8-bit Zombie shop.

Reigning Tee Madness Champion 8-Bit Zombie blew a lot of people’s minds yesterday with their extraordinary Summer 2012 release. The coolest item was definitely the “8-bit Zombie Kids Club” package which included a custom lunch box, patch and t shirt. The t shirt was available in two colors, heather neon orange and heather kelly green. I refer to this item in the past tense only because it was super limited and sold out in just a few hours. I was pretty swamped at work, and unfortunately missed out on this purchase. 8-bit Zombie hinted on Facebook that the shirts and patches will make a comeback, though.

But have no fear, there are a bunch of other super rad items that celebrate everything great about the ’80s. Here are a few of my favorites, all available right now over at the 8-bit Zombie shop.

Last Thursday, artist Raw Meat hosted “Loading,” an art exhibit featuring work from over 30 amazing artists celebrating video games from the 1970s to present. Based on the pictures and guest accounts, the show was a huge success. In addition to the art, the epic show featured a live painting demo, live music, a live Street Fighter tournament, and other gaming-themed activities. The show also aimed to bring awareness and raise money for the National Autistic Society (of the United Kingdom).

You can purchase some of the limited and unique one-of-kind pieces of artwork from this show over at Raw Meat’s Bigcartel store. Pictured above are just a few of the pieces available. Prices range from 17 pounds (about $27) to 300 pounds (about $469) before shipping.
