And thanks to Beardedwalrus for the template.

I took a closer look thinking I'd end up telling you to make the text more visible, but fuck no. Even the screens, man.
This is awesome.

#3, Same here.

I love what you did with the screens at the back and the lightning is spot on, ;) lol

This should be moved to masterworks,straight away.

Now, We have to wait endlessly to look at the box in Hall and Masterworks :(

Very shiny and colorful. I really like how the screens are sunk into the grass. Everything looks great but the text is kinda hard to read in the regular view.

#3: That means a good deal, ADFD, thanks.

#4/5: Thanks a lot, man. I'd made sure to keep the text visible when viewing the printable, and the screenshots were actually one of the first ideas I'd come up with when starting the cover.

#6: That's a bit generous, but I appreciate it nonetheless. Thanks.

#7: I had to resize the image to upload, as it was too large before, which is why the text is a bit difficult to read in full view. It should be perfectly legible if you printed it out though.

I'd like to take this time to tell all of you capable of buying this game without the need to import or mod, you'd better do so, because I want my US release. Plus, it's not like you would want to pass over what's likely one of the best games of the year.

Very good work, the front reminds me the artwork from the complete guide. Excellent idea with the screenshots in the grass, very creative.

#12/14: Thanks for taking some time to leave comments, guys. Hopefully I'll be able to put the printable to use at some point.

#13: The images of Shulk and Sharla were actually from the complete guide. The other characters I arranged myself.

Impressive, the colors are gorgeous and the way you presented the screens on the back is amazing. Text is a bit hard to see thoug, but great job nevertheless!

Great, great work, but I feel you may be relapsing with your love for effects...except this time it's lighting. If you can keep it tasteful then it's fine, but i'm gonna have to object when you have two, very distinct light sources on the back coming from completely opposite ends.

Overlooking that flaw, this is excellent; I particularly like the way you've presented the screens.

#17: Patience is a virtue. I'll wait until a proper North American release is made.

#18: Both out and in the printable view? I made sure the text was legible enough if printed. Thanks much, either way.

#19: I see. My intentions were less about adding another source of light, and continuing the orange glow from the front. Purely for consistency's sake. I decided to throw together a back with a lighting scheme I assume you'd find more preferable: (link) If you guys think I should update with this, let me know. I truly appreciate the criticisms, Flexx, thanks.

Very nice job SD, the front is perfect. The back though is really bothering me. Nice job on the screen shots and background, but the text is much to difficult to read. It needs to stand out more, and the screens could be a bit bigger. But of course, wonderful job!

Edit: The new back lighting does look much better.

#20, Ahh, I can see now that you did indeed continue the lighting from the front. My bad for missing that one. In either case, I find your updated design to be much more pleasant...maybe if you were thinking of updating the back text you'd have a go at changing the back as well?

I love the front. The text on the back is very weak and hard to read.

Spiderpig24 47 [ 8 years ago ]

OH MY, this is so perfect. I was going to mention that the text was too small, but in the printable view it's clearly not. This makes me want to start posting boxes again, wow it's fantastic.

Apologies for the late response. I updated the back with the red lighting removed and the synopsis drop shadow enhanced. I didn't have an issues reading the text before, but it should at least be easier now.

Thanks for feedback and compliments, guys.

The idea of the screenshots being on the grass was creative, but I thing it would be better without it, I preffer the screenshots "un the air" but it's just me

The front is gorgeous! I love this design, a lot of characters above the logo and some "background" under.

I shall fav it

#31: Thanks, Jevan.

#32: I did consider having the screenshots simply hover above the image, but in the end felt it was a bit too basic, and I couldn't think of another way to blend them in with the image. Thanks for leaving a comment though, I always appreciate it.
