"Eustace Tilley: FINAL BOSS" (2008)


Early this morning I submitted my piece for The Eustace Tilley Contest, in which entrants
reimagine the iconic New Yorker character and winners chosen by the editors will appear in
February's anniversary issue. The concept of Tilley as the final boss in an imaginary side-
scroller came to me as I pictured the classic butterfly moving in 2D space and interacting with
the giant dandy. I used this opportunity to honor some of my favorite shooters of all time:
Forgotten Worlds, Space Harrier and Contra. The New Yorker isn't exactly known as a gaming
journal but you can leave comments and see the other entries on my Tilley Flickr page:
