I photoshopped these silly crime novel covers almost five years ago for a silly game preview (Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles) I wrote up on DS Fanboy/Joystiq.
Imagine my surprise when they popped up on my Tumblr dashboard last night with 30K+ likes and reblogs! Back when I posted them, hardly anyone noticed the images. I ain’t even mad that 99.99% of the dudes seeing them now have no idea who Jake Hunter is or that I made these — it’s just great to have people finally appreciating them.
The pizza roll one is particularly popular. I’ve seen it pop up on Facebook and meme/social sites a bunch of times. It’s pretty funny that all these people in the West have been sort of introduced to an obscure Japanese adventure game series through a random image about pizza rolls. And that I played a part in that!
