One of the most commonly asked questions Nick and I receive is, â€œWhere can I get some of the cool swag you give out at events?â€ While we donâ€™t always have leftovers to use for giveaways, we were recently able to secure some pretty cool items for our gamesâ€¦ and itâ€™s all for a good cause.
As many of you already know, over Labor Day weekend, Company of Heroes Online lead designer Brian Wood was tragically killed in a car accident while saving the lives of his wife and unborn child. Since then, weâ€™ve seen tons of support for Brianâ€™s family from within game development community, and we decided that weâ€™d like to help out, too. Over the past couple months, weâ€™ve started working on collecting items to auction off on eBay â€” with all proceeds of the auctions going to The Brian Wood Memorial Trust.
Beginning today, these are the items weâ€™re auctioning off:
- One-of-a-kind RAGE Framed/Signed Print
- Fallout: New Vegas Neon Sign
- Todd Howard-signed Vault Boy Bobblehead
- Massive 10 ft Brink Print (signed by the team at Splash Damage)
- Team-signed copy of Fallout: New Vegas (Xbox 360)
- Team-signed Fallout 3 Poster
- Team-signed Fallout: New Vegas Poster (NCR Ranger)
- Team-signed Fallout: New Vegas Lithograph (All Roads)
- Fallout: New Vegas NCR T-Shirt
All auctions are running now and will end in seven days. This is your chance to get some cool, limited stuff in time for the holidays. To those that win, we thank you for helping contribute to Brianâ€™s family.
There is some really cool stuff here, and the money goes to a great cause.[phpbay]””, 20, “”, “”, “”, bethblog_auction[/phpbay]
