Apogee Shrine!

A follow-up to the Duke Shrine email from a few days ago.. We received an email from Eric Baker (one of our old beta testers), and he sent some captures of the walls of his computer room. Here's what he has to say about his "Beta Shrine!":

Hey Joe,
I saw the article about Ross' Duke shrine in the news section of the 3DR web page and I thought I'd pass mine on...

The first picture consists of posters I made when I was a beta tester. I made one for every game I beta tested except for Shadow Warrior (which I really need to do.)

>From left to right- Beta symbol, Xenophage, Duke3D, Stargunner, HiSpeed/Death Race/Death Rally, Duke Nukem Plutonium Pak, and Balls of Steel. I made the posters by collecting screenshots from the game as it evolved from it's buggy unpolished state to what it looked like when it was released.

The second picture is a poster that I made from the boxes that you guys used to send games in before they were sold in stores with fancy foiled, embossed graphics.

If you have any of these kinds of pictures, please let us know about it. If we get enough of them, we'll start a section devoted entirely to these things. Thanks! (You can click on either of these thumbnails for a larger image.
