Microsoft has launched another “ugly” sweater in the style of the game “Minesweeper”
It looks like Microsoft has a funny new tradition. Last year, she released a sweater with an emphatically “ugly” design, which was ridiculed by the famous graphic editor MS Paint, for the start of Christmas sales. All copies were sold out literally in 24 hours, so a year later the company decided to repeat the trick, and presented a new ugly sweater.
The theme of Microsoft’s festive attire in 2021 is the Minesweeper game. No less famous than Paint, it has become for many a symbol of familiarity with the Windows family as a whole. A kind of reference to the good old days, when computers were bulky and slow, but the program code was optimized conscientiously and everything “flew”.
The sweater is designed exactly as a Christmas accessory – the patterns form a decorated Christmas tree, where bombs play the role of Christmas decorations. Attentive users will notice the number 1990 – this is the year of creation of the game “Minesweeper”. The cost of the clothes is $74.99, but it is as much as $5 lower than last year’s sweater, besides Microsoft vows to send most of the proceeds to charity.
