That’s right, true believers! Meat Bun is heading to San Diego Comic-Con (July 11 – 15) for the very first time. We’re buddying up with our pals at Giant Robot to bring great video game t-shirts to San Diego. We’ll have out-of-print designs, restocks, maybe even a new thing or two.
Stop by, say hi, grab a sticker and… buy somethin’ will ya!
Where can you find us? At booth #1731, with our friends from Giant Robot. We’re just east of the DC Entertainment and Sideshow Collectibles mega-booths. Here. Look at this map with the arrow pointing at our booth! Or look for the new Paul Robertson-designed banners that will adorn our space.
Dang! Another Game Night at GR2? Already?! Sounds good to me, man.
Here’s the deal. We’ll have James Kochalka and Pixel Jam’s Glorkbot’s Mini-Adventure (a spin-off of the in-progress Glorkian Warrior) headlining, with support from Tri-Tri-Triobelisk and Samurai Gunn. Since this is happening during the Game Over art exhibition at GR2, Yeren and the meow-packed Catburger will also be on hand.
So many games!!!
Game Night 10 happens Saturday, June 16 2012, from 6:30 – 10:00 p.m.

The next game from Tribute Games – you know, the folks who made Wizorb and Ninja Senki – has been announced: MERCENARY KINGS!!! Sorry for the excess exclamation, but friend of Meat Bun Paul Robertson is involved and making dashing new sprites for the 2013 game. Expect lots of weapon crafting (a la Monster Hunter…?!) and dogs with eyepatches riding mechanized puppy tanks.
Thanks to everyone who came out to Giant Robot’s “Game Over” art exhibition last weekend. Meat Bun was proud to showcase some of its artwork (which you can probably spot in the photos below) alongside such talented artists. If you missed the show for some valid reason, like being pinned beneath burning wreckage on a Saturday night, there’s still a chance to soak up and/or buy this fine art. Game Over will run at GR2 until June 27.
Purveyors of fine video game art, your attendance is requested at Giant Robot’s all-new “Game Over” art exhibition. The annual-ish art show returns to Giant Robot on June 2, featuring the art of dozens of talented artists, all showing video game inspired work. That includes Meat Bun! We have a unique piece at the show, which you’re more than welcome to purchase.
Opening reception happens Saturday, June 2, with Game Over running through E3 2012 until June 27.
Here’s where the action is!
