The free software mascots thread

Postby Wuzzy » 18 Dec 2012, 06:42

Here I post a list of some not-so-very-well-known free software mascots.
SuperTuxKart is a racing game about mascots racing each other, so having a list of free software mascots could be very handy.
Unfortunately, I am totally unskilled with 3D modeling, so I can’t contribute any karts. Just ideas. ;-)

I don't post mascots which already are part of the game or published in an add-on package.
If you know any other mascots of free software, just post them here. I want to have an extensive list of mascots so that future contributers can look here for ideas.

In the list, I post the name, a short desription, the name of the software where the mascot belongs to and some links for your orientation. If I put "???" for the name it means I don't know the name. Most likely those mascots don't have a name at all.

Here’s the list:

Following entries may not be mascots, because they look more like icons. However, they may be an interesting thought.

Some people are like slinkies... not really good for anything, but you still can't help smiling when you shove them down the stairs.

Here's an unique and evil mascot (we have way too few evil characters in the game):

Well, actually, it’s more like an anti-mascot, but whatever. ;-)

PS: I agree that Mike would make a good kart.

PPS: I almost forgot that YaCy has a nice mascot, too:

Oh, and I have found a big webpage listing mascots of free software:
http://chl.be/mascots/ – WTF, that's a lot!
However, some of these entries are probably not really mascots but icons.

Blender files for Gavroche, MediaGoblin’s mascot

Postby Wuzzy » 11 Apr 2013, 23:34

Sry 4 double posting, but this is something good.

Yesterday I obtained the Blender files for Gavroche (MediaGoblin’s mascot).

The files are made by Christopher Allan Webber.

I didn’t look at the Blender files yet but I guess they'll be very helpful in creating a kart featuring Gavroche. :)

Isn't the mascot of XFCE a mouse? :p

From the wiki FAQ (http://wiki.xfce.org/faq):
What does the logo mean?
A mouse, obviously, for all kinds of reasons like world domination and monsters and such.
