Vertiigo role-playing, real-world Rusting, an in-game museum, art, and more.18 July 2017
When veys_ryu popped his art on reddit this week, I was unsure that it was Rusty enough to be a header (he has another below that is very Rusty, but it's also the wrong shape). There's a lot of the game in this, but it's also a very different take on it.
But then I found out what it was for: a Vertiigo video that's heavily role-played. I watched it and got what the image was going for, and now you can too (if you have 40 minutes). I cried with laughter at the Dylan treatment.
Excellent work, everyone.
Funnily enough, though RustyDetonator's Gallery of Rusty Art is a celebration of other player's Rust artwork, I think what they've created is more interesting: the building feels like a working museum, with an information booth and a souvenir shop.
The gallery is peppered with items from the game, set out as exhibits. There's traps behind protective screens, a cross-section of a 2x1 base, and more. It's very lovingly made.
And, yes, I am aware of that one bit of art.
Perhaps Holdacious celebrated his 100k subs too soon. He returned to his Rust Bushcraft series, a supposedly tough challenge where he needs to survive without a base, and ended up doing very well thanks to his recogniseable voice. This post isn't helping with that, but that just makes it funnier to me.
The price of fame is... stuff.
