I really want to have my collector’s box at home and… I was thinking about the cover. @RonGilbert Who will be the artist selected to illustrate it ? I wish it was Steve Purcell, but I do not know if that’s possible.
His covers for the Lucasarts games are amazing !!!
Yes, he seems quite busy now. Since he was already at Pixar when he painted the cover art for “Tales of Monkey Island”, I thought that producing art for new games would have been extremely improbable but not impossible.
That´s actually quite of a bummer. I hope who ever does (did?) it manages to keep it “in the spirit”, somehow.
That´s temp art (from the PSN store I guess), it´s actually pretty common, usually for announced or not yet released games for preorder (they rather use that instead of a generic placeholder I guess). At least they used the official font.
As I´ve mentioned in the other thread where we discussed this, yes I would. As the box art would be one of the main reasons for me to buy the physical copy of the game again, if it turns out this is the one it would probably mean I´m not buying it.
I admit that the agents appear very anonymous, due to the lighting conditions. Furthermore, The other playable characters are missing and the corpse is actually not very important for the story. That said, it looks way better than the white temp art above.
I would prefer a collage of the chracters in a more comic style (but with those certain shadings) instead of a single scene that makes the characters themselves look sinister. As I´ve posted somewhere else this looks less like Thimbleweed Park and more like “Ray and Reyes hunt the Slenderman”.
I don’t think that my opinion about the box art should count in this case, because I’m not interested in the physical box and I wouldn’t buy it anyway. But in theory I would prefer anything that shows the more sinister and dark sides of the story instead of its comedy side.
