A cadre of Irrational Games staffers flew out to Cologne, Germany last week for Gamescom. They chatted with attendees, handed out swag, and held a special event for fans.
We posted a Flickr gallery with shots from throughout the show, including evidence of one of the strangest contests we’ve ever run. Many attendees were given invitations to the fan event at random, but some got their passes by winning the sticker contest. Thousands of BioShock Infinite stickers were distributed during the show, and the fans with the most elaborate or impressive sticker-constructed costumes were rewarded.
This fairly terrifying sticker contest entrant is also modeling Irrational’s Gamescom-exclusive t-shirt, starring Elizabeth with her Lincoln mask. The back is proudly emblazoned with Booker’s immortal line, “Keep looking, Lincoln!”
Irrational’s Keith Shetler, Stephen Alexander, Kate Baxter, and Joe Faulstick proudly show off a Best of Gamescom award from GamingXP. Everyone in this photograph agrees that Keith looks weird without his glasses.
