Club Tiny mystery gift pack incoming! ⊟
Last week, we introduced Club Tiny as a way for readers to support our work with a monthly pledge at Patreon. Whether you join or not, Tiny Cartridge will remain as awesome as it’s always been for free — even awesomer, actually, thanks to the extra attention we can now give the site — but Club Tiny members will receive fun bonuses for their patronage.
We’re preparing a great set of gifts we’ll deploy to our Ambassador-level members and up ($3+) this week — we’re really excited about having the chance to share these tiny rewards. If you want to get in on the fun, make sure to join soon! And if you’ve already joined and signed up to send a mystery gift to a friend, make sure to check our Activity Feed at Patreon for details on sending us their names/emails.
Thank you all again for the generosity and support you’ve shown us so far, helping us reach our Patreon goals and spread the word. I can’t believe how much you’ve pledged already. You are the best. It would require ten thousand posts for us to come close to expressing our gratitude, but we’re trying hard not to spam the site with Patreon-related articles and our excitement.

My WarioWare Life: Four years of video game snapshots ⊟
Duncan Robson’s journal documents the most interesting events in his life (attending conferences, moving across the Atlantic Ocean) as well as his day-to-day existence (going to the dentist, walking a dog). Here’s an entry from January 2013, about finding money on the street, for example.
Gravity Rush holiday card by Kyle Fewell ⊟
So happy to have an excuse to post some Gravity Rush/Kat art here. This is one of several holiday cards Attract Mode will be selling at the Bit Bazaar Winter Market, a “unique celebration of the art and craft of indie games, web comics, and good food,” going down at Toronto’s Bento Miso this Saturday. Why does everything awesome only happen in NYC, California, and Toronto?
Really digging this Dual Blade comic and art ⊟
It’s not an actual comic outside of what you see here and this other awesome sketch, but I’m totally into this world that Giannis Milonogiannis has created where kids roll around with 3DSes strapped to their wrists Yu-Gi-Oh-style, summoning blades from the handheld and challenging bullies. That look probably wouldn’t translate well to real life, though.
Perfect-Dodge Peasant Lady from Dragon’s Crown
She’s probably the biggest badass in the game — the kid walking around with the bottle doesn’t take any hits either, but he doesn’t have a pot on his head. Meanwhile, the dude with the apples is quick to snitch to 5-0 if you bump him. Imma catch up to him later.
The artist behind this, DashXero, has more Dragon’s Crown art you can check out on his Tumblr.
Shadow Triforce shirt idea by Cory Schmitz
The inverted Triforce tee complements his excellent Wisdom, Courage, Power shirt at Attract Mode (bottom image). If you missed the news last week, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will introduce the Shadow Triforce.
I always love Cory’s shirts because they’re rarely gimmicks or mash-ups, just awesome and thoughtful designs.
Reese and Cyrus, by Bee & Puppycat creator Natasha Allegri
You know what’s also super adorable? Re-Tail’s music in Animal Crossing: New Leaf — imagine the sweet melody part as Reese, and the bass as Cyrus, and then them singing/playing together. I soooo love this song now. Thanks to Darling_Shivar for the pro-tip.
Scroll #10 is out, and the covers are gorge
If you backed the Kickstarter for this zine issue, you probably already knew this was out, and got the special edition/fishing cover. The rest of you plebes can now buy Scroll #10 online as a PDF ($5) or print magazine ($14) with the standard bug net cover — both of the wistful designs are from Jacob Smiley.
As mentioned previously, this 60-page issue primarily examines charming cult game series Boku no Natsuyasumi/My Summer Vacation, and includes a rare profile/interview with the franchise’s creator Kaz Ayabe. It also looks at Ayabe’s newest game, upcoming eShop title Attack of the Friday Monsters, along with other topics.
Pond Smelt: Animal Crossing doujinshi from Jane Mai
Awesome artist Jane Mai has a very promising “Animal Crossy" book on the way, if you’re into imagining lives and experiences with your New Leaf neighbors beyond the confines of the game’s scripted dialogue.
It’s published by Peow Studio and will ship early July. You can preorder Pond Smelt online for 100 Swedish krona, which I’m told is around $15 (shipping worldwide included) — expensive, but I can already tell from these preview pages that this book right here, right now, right here, this is my shit. Plus it comes with a “special surprise present.”
Oh, and have I mentioned yet that wolves (especially those that are named Fang) are the best Animal Crossing neighbors?
Just some Isabelle GIFs
The Twelve Days of New Leaf by Eric Kubli
And three important Animal Crossing: New Leaf links:
- Here’s a guide to help you make sure you get the face you want.
- A special Animal Crossing podcast from Tiny Cartridge!
- My home in Buttocks, and a code for visiting the town once you’ve built a Dream Suite.
For those who started playing it this weekend, how are you enjoying the game so far?
This will be featured at iam8bit’s gallery show opening tomorrow in Los Angeles! More than 80 artists have provided pieces for the exhibit, which is nuts.
Square Enix has put out a list detailing a portion of the games it will show at E3 next week, but the tally doesn’t include any of Wii U or 3DS’s Dragon Quest games — there’s not even a mention of Bravely Default, though that may be because Nintendo is publishing it in the U.S. I’ll be very disappointed if we don’t hear anything about Dragon Quest X, Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D, Slime MoriMori Dragon Quest 3, or Dragon Quest VII.
