Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Give This Guy His Game

You might remember the ballad of Ricky Lee Kalichun, who went over to an acquaintance's place to retrieve a video game - albeit wearing Sharpie war paint and using a samurai sword. This guy wants his game? Let's give him one.

Let's think a little bit before we just straight up meme-ify Mr. Kalichun. I know a lot of you want to put him behind the curtain at the Nintendo 3DS event. I know others want to put him behind one of the Dead Space 2 moms. Still more want to work him into the startup screen of Bad Dudes or alongside Asshole Dog. While all of these are near and dear to my heart, we need to do a better job of bringing the funny.

Suggestions? There's always a box cover. There are also numerous exploitable screenshots that can be used to turn, say, Bulletstorm into Ricky Lee's game. But we could also make him into a developer and put him on the stage or in a booth at E3, i.e. Ricky Lee's game could be something that he isn't in, but he's making.
