Review: We discovered the GamerPrint brand when we visited EGX last month, and James bought one of their fabulously geeky yet stylish Mario t-shirts. When we got back home we checked out their site, and I was delighted to see that they stocked Monkey Island t-shirts too, something I’ve never seen before.
If you’ve not heard of the Monkey Island games before, then I pity you. You’ve missed out on one of the best things to come from LucasArts – beginning with The Secret of Monkey Island, the series of humorous point-and-click graphic adventure games follows the adventures of (frankly quite rubbish) pirate wannabe Guybrush Threepwood. The story begins on Mêlée Island, home of the Scumm Bar – the best place for pirates to get themselves some Grog. Incidentally, Grog has some amazing properties & is helpful for staging prison breaks.
This GamerPrint t-shirt has a gorgeously designed logo for the Scumm Bar, complete with the Mêlée Island location & “Home of Grog” motto. The colours and design seem perfect, and it looks as good in person as it does on their website.
I chose the XXL size womens, being plus size, and it fits comfortably. I don’t wear a lot of women’s fitted tees so it was a bit odd at first to wear a top this shape! I think it looks really nice on, and it was certainly really soft and comfy against my skin – they are great quality t-shirts.
This t-shirt looks great, is really comfortable, and is a perfect nod back to a game I have loved for years. The price is possibly a little higher than I would usually pay for a casual top, but not overpriced for what it is. I would certainly buy one this price as a gift for a gamer.
5 stars! GamerPrint sell a whole range of beautifully designed t-shirts, hoodies, phone cases, and wall art too – I think I will definitely be having a browse when it comes to choosing Christmas and Birthday presents for James this winter!
