My first Pod Pal auction has ended with Otto Bismarck as the winner!
Wow. Seriously, WOW. I’m completely floored by the response. Mind is officially blown and broken. When I started talking about making Pod Pals and did the beta Sakaane I didn’t really expect that other players would think it was that much of a cool idea. Grown men and women, hardcore EVE players, getting excited about a doll? Nah. Not exactly on the same level as commissioning an alliance logo, a painted portrait, a corp video, or a Guristas toque, eh? At best, maybe it’d be a curiosity that people would smile at and say “that’s neat” and then change the subject, and I’d become that weird crocheting gamer.
Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained… I was going to make one for myself either way, and if nobody ever expressed interest in wanting one for themselves, well, that would have been disappointing but not the end of the world.
