Townseed Outfit Design Contest Winners!

Hello! BaraGamer here! Captaingerbear has announced the winners of the Townseed Outfit Design Contest! The winners are as follows:

Waistshirt by Star-Ringer with 150 votes

Leopard by GuardianMoose with 148 votes

Athlete by Ultramooz with 147 votes

And now a message from Captaingerbear:

The top 3 are so close together, that the 1st and 3rd placed entries only had a 3 vote difference between them.  As a result of this, I have decided to award the special prize to all three entrants.  In addition to the finalists, there are two honorable mentions that will receive prizes, one chosen by myself, and one chosen by your Master of Baramonies from

All finalists will receive a +1 preorder for Townseed (meaning that if you already possess a preorder, or purchase one in the future, you will be bumped up one space on the list of preorder bonuses!) and a custom-made USB gamepad with your winning design on it! There will only be ONE of each design produced, so they will be wholly unique! This is of course on top of the design credit, and inclusion of your design as an outfit in the game.

The honorable mentions will still receive the +1 preorder for Townseed, the credit and inclusion of their design.

For the honorable mentions, I have chosen “Sack Pants by Sohajime” and Captain GerBear has chosen “Blue Cowl by Dinohugs.” Contest winners will be contacted through the method they entered the contest. Enjoy your prizes!
