Everyone loves a bit of videogame merch, but imagine how much more if fans were able to have a hand in designing some. Well, you may not have to imagine - Rust
developer Facepunch Studios has teamed up with merchandise site For Fans By Fans to launch a competition giving the survival game's
players a chance to get their Rust-inspired ideas turned into real-world goodies - but the submission date's just around the corner. As posted
on the FFBF site, the merchandise design contest gives the multiplayer game's
fans the opportunity to submit designs based on Rust through the site's Fan Forge area. The designs will then be judged by the Facepunch team, and selected designs will be turned into official merch, such as t-shirts, pillow cases, art prints, and more. Plus, the announcement says, "all selected designs will receive commission on all sales". Sweet. For the three best designs submitted, the companies are also giving away some nifty prizes. The grand prize winner will get a framed print from Facepunch, a copy of the dev's 'Complete Bundle' on Steam, a copy of their winning merch, plus $50 (approximately £38) to spend on FFBF merch.
