Boardwalk Knitting

All I can tell you about this image is that it's a screencap from some video game, a teaser released back in August 2010. The blogger reporting on it didn't know what it was from, and has never updated his post. It may have been from a game released only to the Japanese market.

I don't play video games (not because I don't like them in a way but because whenever I have played them I was always mad at myself for the sheer waste of time they constitute), so I don't know what game this is from. But if I knew, I might play this one. I mean, come on, this looks like "the mobsters of Boardwalk Empire learn to knit and meet Evil Sockboy". How can that do otherwise than rock?


  1. "Evil Sockboy" is close! if you look the left, you can barely make out the knit character Sackboy ( from the game LittleBigPlanet. There's an alternate character named Evil Sackboy as well.

    This was a teaser for LittleBigPlanet2, which had been codenamed "amimono" by Sony - Japanese for knitting. (And that about sums up my random knowledge of a Japanese promo for a video game featuring knitting!)

  2. Excellent blog! Keep up the good work.
