    The fuck?


    It might not have been released, but how did we not see this at any point?!


    EDIT: "Might not" is probably an understatement. It wasn't.

    I wonder if anyone won the contest. Seems like a low barrier to entry...

    It doesn't look like it got much attention, and apparently they're shutting down their beta in a couple days so maybe it was never made? Also I agree Fish, how the fuck did we miss this?

    That looks like a photo and not a mock-up, so safe to say at least one was produced? Probably cheaper to not pick them up from PA if the game/company went under.

    But if that one was to make it to ebay..

    I guess they were planing to bring it to prime.
    I don't know how we all missed that. Opps

    Somebody has the pin:
    https://twitter.com/ThaKilla24/status/671779113456287745

    The question is: who will be the first to ask this person if it's for sale...

  • fishfishmonkeyhatfishfishmonkeyhat Freelance Pin Man Newcastle, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    It was me.

  • ToafaloafToafaloaf Registered User regular
    Looks like ThaKilla24 tweets maybe once a month. Hopefully you hear back. Very curious if they'll hold back.

    My thoughts are this: if it isn't here yet, then it isn't official.

    Trading DLC, DSB Merch, Gold OW, and Castle Guy for this pin!


    <Protip, if you ended up with one of these somehow, now would be the time to put it on ebay>

    There is probably a big box of these just siting in a corner somewhere.

    When I saw the tweet earlier today I was like, "The ****?"

    How did I never even hear about this pin? Relived that I'm not alone though.

    According to the forums, this is a (part) Square Enix game, and was supposed to be set in the Sleeping Dogs universe. Is there any value in tweeting at Square as well? I have no idea if they actually respond to tweets from fans.

    If I was bidding on that auction I'd ask for a new photo considering it's just cropped from the original tweet, and the account is only a few months old.

    Named pinfriends, doesn't realise he has a super rare unreleased pin until today.

    Also his one + feedback is for buying something, so unproven as a seller afaik.


    $330.00

    @Beker @dabe @Robert Khoo @merchmistress plus any other PA staff that may read this; if you guys have some type of release plans for this pin you should probably let people know now before someone spends this much on a soon-to-be-common pin...

    So, reading the thread, it looks like at least 18 of these made it into the wild.
    That should mean the developer has the full box of 1,000 (or more).

    I got a email respond from someone behind triad wars.
    I posted it both on slack and whatsup app.
    They are making plans for those pins. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more information in days to come.

    All right boys, close it up! Looks like we got another Naughty Dog on our hands!



    lol, bids have been cancelled, ebay auction now down to $102.50, made by the one guy not checking this thread. :P

  • SkeleVaderSkeleVader Your Friendly Dark Lord of Destruction Registered User regular
    That email reeks of a typical customer service response that really tells you nothing in the end.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's months before they actually know what they are going to do with the pins.

    I tried the game out - as I was a big fan of Sleeping Dogs. It was a fun timewaster - but it felt like a slightly better APB: Reloaded. Repetitive and definitely geared towards microtransactions. But I was willing to overlook that because I wanted it to be successful to fund a sequel to Sleeping Dogs. But no one really knew about this game and these pins could have really helped with that. It feels wrong to want a pin that is part of a failing game, and yet I still want it....

    Months? The game is apparently shutting down in a day. Then away to a storage bin forever...

    At $15 each, assuming they printed 1000, they're sitting on at least like $2000 (based on the number that will probably sell ;))

    THAT game might be. But there isn't anything stopping them from cutting away the "useful" bits of the IP and releasing something else, this time with Pin Hype!

    This has come up before. I don't know what the contracts with 3rd party people look like, but currently there doesn't seem to be a provision for PA announcing the release. Which seems kind of odd, because the signal boost from the PA front page would be a good thing for them to have. I'm not saying Triad Wars would have escaped the axe, but they would have had a lot more interest if this community had known about them.
