Fallout Theme for Windows Mobile and HTC Sense
XDA members horrorview and [★] have together created a skin for WVGA Windows Mobile devices that is reminiscent of the abandoned, tarnished and ironically cheerful art found in Fallout 3; one of the most popular and critically acclaimed video games of the last decade.

The theme is compatible with Co0kie’s Home Tab and is available in the original thread.
