Admiral Swiggins was a part of a "create your own 'naut" contest. User Channfree's Admiral Swiggins was then chosen by Ronimo Games staff to be among the five finalists, along with Ivan Romanov, Nodja, Jebidiah Molecoon and Yowie he Yeti. Admiral Swiggins was chosen by the community in a voting on a Facebook Survey.
A second contest was made to decide on Admiral Swiggins appearance and once again, the community was able to send their entries for many different depictions of the character. User coffeybean4 won the contest with the design seen above.
