I wrote a bit about Bioshock a while ago when Threadless had a competition to design a t-shirt about it. The results were ok, but I think there is plenty of room for more Bioshock t-shirts. This design is from a fan art page that Superpunch just published.
Bioshock is an incredibly interesting game that’s story is inspired by the philosophical writings of Ayn Rand, in particular the novel “When Atlas Shrugged”. This video review for the game mentions Ayn Rand and dostoevsky’s crime and punishment.
Video games are few and far between with such literary references, but this game really looks like it’s going to take narrative, story telling, and action to the next level. About time considering these games are getting Hollywood style budgets now. If this game can live up to the hype it will certainly spawn a great many more T-shirt designs.

My copy is waiting at home for me right now, so I can’t wait to get on there and play.
