This is how i roll – Katamari damacy t-shirt

Katmari how i Roll

UPDATE: You can buy the shirt here at Big shout out to for the link

I was playing some poker this weekend with some guys and as is tradition we have a PS2 set up for the losers lounge, so when someone gets knocked out they can play some video games while they’re waiting for another game. Anyway we always have some kind of racing game or something and I said I wish we had Katamari Damacy (a crazy Japanese game), so one of the guys (who had never been to one of our poker games before) then unbuttoned his shirt to display this sweet Katamari Damacy t-shirt. Now of course at this point I mentioned I wrote a blog about t-shirts, and he asked what it was called, I said tcritic and he then said he actually subscribed to my RSS feed, small world :-)

Here you can play a flash version of the game (not as good as ps2 but it does hint at the strangeness of this game). And strangely the only folks in the US with the rights to sell Katamari T-shirts is a company that makes and sells mac software, weird.

    Yeah, but where did he get that shirt, damnit?

  3. karl says:

    Sorry about that, I’ll try and get in touch with him and find out where he bought it, I think it was from a UK site. Stay tuned.

    I got the shirt from ZeStuff in Canada (not the UK, my bad.) Looks like it is not in their catalog any more. :-(

    Man, that looked like a shit knock off to me, in fact it looked like someone had cut and pasted the picture from that one above

  9. Trivisual says:

    I shit you not, I’ve seen this as a meme on 4chan before. vectored and all. Not really that big of a surprise somebody ripped it off for a little pocket change.

    I like the Katamari Damacy shirts from Panic more:

  11. Mr Juggles says:

    Yeah, that shirt linked on Cafepress looks like a bad knockoff.

  12. meo says:

    i got that shirt from cafepress and it’s all pixely and has a grey square behind it :( you mean this one’s not like that??

  13. Karl says:

    That’s typical, no I think the cafe press guy here just copied my image and put it on a cafe press shirt, i’d send that crap back. totally sucks.

  14. technabob says:

    I think I found the real deal here:

    $17.99 to $19.99 in sizes from Small to 3XL.

    Caveat Emptor.

  15. meo says:

    Aww! i think it’s too late to send it back now. >:( i only got it from there because i really wanted it and it was the only place i could find that had it.. I wish i would have seen that place technabob put earlier. T~T that’s cheaper than the one i got too!! what a fricken ripoff

  16. Glad to see people found my site!

    My friend came up with the idea and I designed the art… and I’m sad to say it has been ripped off many times.

    Well at least as a graphic designer, it’s nice to know people appreciate your art enough to steal it. >__>

  17. Katie says:

    that shirt is AWESOME!!

    im glad i found this place! i might have ordered it from a rip off website!

    so you would reccommend technabob right?


  18. karl says:

    Yeah, Technabob is good and the quality of the screen is excellent, I ordered one myself :-)

  19. they don’t have women’s tshirt orders for size small or medium?


  20. karl says:

    Wow, you’re right, only L and XL for women? I’ll drop and email to Shawn :-)
