Woah, that looks amazing, and so old-school! I wish I had one of these :P Great work, Jenny!

Haha, Slash, you're on the team.  There's already one with your name on it!

 :o Cool, didn't know that. You know, stuff like that should be used in MasterCard ads. "Priceless" ;)

PS Obviously I've meant the second part of the message. I know I'm on the team, LOL xD

Did someone just say "FREE SWAG FOR THE TEAM MEMBERS!!!1"? 'Cause that's what I heard, and I think that's a great idea!  ;D

Love where you went with this, the whole Vallejo/Frazetta angle works delightfully - retro in the most awesomely cheesy way imaginable. :) Great job on the execution too, Jen! :)

Yeah, I think you've actually managed to keep the style of retro box covers:







 Perfect! ;)

Love the art, but perhaps a dark blue or dark green border instead of red?

I was never a fan of the system requirements sticker in front of boxes, that's actually a trend I'm glad has gone away. Think boxes look much better without them.

Yeah, the sticker I just made up for nostalgia's sake.  I don't know what the final border's color will be - I've tried a couple of different iterations.  We'll see what we end up with before it goes to print.

Green was my suggestion too, Gonchi, that part isn't finalised yet, as Bt says.  That's just the colour it was before my artwork was completed and added in, and you're right that a blue or green would complement better now.

After doing a video review of some old computer game catalogs, Clint over at Lazy Game Reviews has a video review of System Requirement Stickers:

This has given me an idea.  I will have the boxes printed up without the requirements sticker on it - and perhaps have a run of requirement stickers printed up, so that you can put it on there if you like!

Oh, man, I hope the system requirements sticker doesn't go away!  I agree that they weren't the most awesome feature of gameboxes of yore, but their inclusion on a retro Big Box feels almost mandatory!  I, at least, cast my vote for keeping them  :)

The only flaw I see is that the sticker font isn't quite awful enough  ;-)

The ubiquitously-hated and universally-reviled Comics Sans for the win!  (Or loss, actually...)
