Any other company that approved merch for a game that’s still in Alpha would be laughed at. But Mojang Specifications is not any other company, and Minecraft is no mere video game. Honestly I’m surprised it took this long for any official Minecraft goodies to come out. But here’s the alpha batch, a couple of shirts with designs as simple as the game’s graphics:
If you’re not familiar with the game, the Creeper shirt will probably look like it has a sad cactus on it, but to Minecraft players, this is their worst nightmare, printed. The Minecraft Union shirt is more soothing, and brotherly.
But there’s also a small Creeper printed at the back of the Union shirt. So never let your guard down. You can get both shirts at ThinkGeek for $20-$22 (USD). Speaking of ThinkGeek, you know that 2001 Space Odyssey Monolith prank item I featured a while back? You can now buy it for reals.
