The latest piece of impressive Overwatch concept art from artist and fan of the game Antonio Demico takes Tracer and reimagines her as a Victorian-era Time Traveler à la H.G. Wells.

Demico said on Twitter he wanted to create “a Tracer skin with longer hair, so one thing led to another and I ended up with a Victorian steampunk-ish Time Traveler Tracer!”

Technically this skin does have longer hair than Tracer’s usually sports, and the combination of gold and wood textures along with inset old-fashioned clocks and a particularly British outfit really captures that steampunk style Demico was aiming for.

On Twitter, Demico said he thought the skin could be used as a Halloween skin, but this concept is so good it could probably just be a regular in-game skin, available year-round.

There are even tiny gears visible in Tracer’s chest mechanism if you look close enough, just another detail that makes this illustration and idea overall so impressive.

Demico has created a ton of awesome Overwatch art before, like an awesome Plague Doctor skin concept for Ana that would fit perfectly into Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event.

From the looks of things, it doesn’t seem like Demico will stop making his impressive original Overwatch creations anytime soon, which is definitely good news for fans.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
