For this year's creation, however, my idea bank has remained empty. I haven’t really loved any games so far in 2011 (note: might change post 10/18, re: Arkham City). But after mulling it over for awhile, I have decided to devote my pumpkins to the namesake for this blog and finally give the multitude of folks who have arrived here by using the keywords “chrono trigger pumpkin” a real picture of what they are searching for, and not just a mashup of two concepts both featured independently over time. So in a couple of weeks, I will attempt to pull off something probably more difficult than I can currently imagine, considering the hundreds of 16-bit pixelated sprites and scenes that are conjured up during a Google image search. So…wish me luck; I’ll post my results should they honor my beloved favorite, but can’t promise a big reveal if they turn out…unrecognizable…and thereby icky.
Here are our fantastic pumpkins from years past:
2009: The Year I Loved Portal and Matt Went to a Rapture Masquerade, circa 1959.
2010: The Year I Loved Bright Falls and Fall Valley
