Been a while in coming and still a bit in progress but…I’ve been wanting to give back to TRS for quite a while and ever since creating the class medallions, which seems so long ago, had been trying to find a way to do something like that for the entire TRS staff. I know there are over 100 people there now, so making the medallions just wasn’t an option since they were so time consuming and I’m just one person. So another idea came to me, which was making a pinback of the logo. It would only take a single mold and 2 colors, so production was more reasonable for those numbers.
Originally I wanted to put Turtle Rock Studios beneath the turtle…but it was just too much text and too tiny for me to work out. It would also make the pin too large overall and that increases weight. Then I thought of having just TRS, but it looked clunky and dominated the piece since the letters were oversized. So, long story short I stuck with the turtle only, and the weight should be decent enough to wear as a pin. Some pieces are a bit fatter than others, but every piece is made and painted by hand so is unique.
So that has been my semi-secret I’ve been holding on to. I was supposed to unveil this at the same time as Wraith, but I’m just a little late. I am hoping to get them all finished and shipped out by release week, so cross your fingers. At the very least…it’ll be sooooon!
