Things We Saw Today: These “Roverwatch” Stickers Imagine the Heroes of Overwatch As Dogs
These puppy stickers bear an uncanny resemblance to the heroes of Overwatch, don’t they? They’re a fan-made creation by Lily Nishita–not Blizzard-endorsed, or anything. But, hey, maybe they should be! You can go grab some sticker versions of your faves on her website.
