Hi there, new box celebrating the Sega Dreamcast.

Hope you enjoy, as alot of this was custom made, e.g. I 3D'd it completely by myself, the background is mine, as are the screenborders. So I hope you can understand that the text is about as good as the 4Kids script-work. Sorry about that. Oh, it's huge in full view

Enjoy, please rate and comment!

It looks good, but i think you should have used the screens of Knuckles in Sonic Adventure, unless it was meant to be a 2-D game? A few effects could be used on the front... but overall it's a great box.

I really like how the front is simple, I wish you would have done something plain for the back, but its still a nice job. +Fav

It's not bad but a bit bland. I see the concept you're trying to create but it seems a little too simple too be honest.

The back is pretty good, but I agree that the front is kind of boring, and could use some effects.

#6, Y'know, that is probably the nicest comment I have ever got...

If anyone has any ideas for what I could do with the front (keeping with the same sort of design), please don't hesitate to say.

Keep 'em coming guys...

Lol, for once I do a decent back... and then the front get's messed up...

#25 I've also noticed users saying "+fav" and not actually clicking the button... it's a part of how things work I guess :)

The box is simple, yeah, but the moment you see it, it makes you want to pick it up ( supposedly it existed), it catches the eye. I think this is an important aspect of cover art used to sell the game it contains, and not only how complex or not the artwork is.

I agree with #26. The design is simple in it's layout, but it's extremely sharp, clean, and professional looking.

Listen, I've already seen your box. Don't advertise. Anywho, for the box, I really like it. It's plain... but in a detailed kind of way. I really like how pro is looks, but I'm still on the fence about the screenshots aren't even morphed together, but still slanted and in the same area without even some kind of seperation...
but, considering the other qualities, I suppose, under this circumstance, I will +fav, but stop putting your stupid little ads on everyone's pages, I think they're getting totally annoyed.

Excellent, and by far your best work thus far. I think a more appropriate back description text would work better, but you have definitely worked hard on this box and it shows. Great work dude, +fav

I guess you removed the option to PM/write on your wall, but thanks for sending it to me, I wouldn't have seen it otherwise

This is swift and skippin, in other words tight and poppin.

But in usual english, it's sweet and tidy.

Nice work, i forgot what Knuckles was called, echidna, nice work and i am faving this as my first.

Great box, 5/5 but the front eludes me. It needs a bit more "Omph"

You have some issues going on with the outline on the body of your game description.

Not a fan of the statement at the end "..or will you fall and die?". Just doesn't feel like a statement you would find on the back of a Sonic box. The checkered screenshot border is a nice touch.

I love that you didn't go with Sonic as a main character. Reminds me of Knuckles Chaotix, since Knuckles is the main character of this game.

It feels a lot like a game from the era it reflects.

While i can see the effort in this, it's really not all that good, in my opinion.
Believe me,as i can't stress this enough: It's an opinion.

I feel as if the front is too empty, some nice textures could be added or something.. Also, knuckles is just floating there, without any feeling of space.

The back typography feels like a mess, especially the last ''or will you fall and die''.[which sounds lame,by the way].
Also, the text is crammed in tight spaces,and the strokes on it [ and the front logo,btw] are a bit too prominently present.

I could've just ignored this box because even though you advertised the sh*t out of it, I never saw it before.
Still, I believe my opinion is something to keep in the back of your head, if you respect it or not.

Point is, I don't like this box too much. Sorry.

#38, Well, that is your opinion and I respect that, however, I did ask people to ignore the back text. Lol. :P

Anywhoo...

YAY! Hall of Fame.

Pros: Clean, high resolution.
Cons: Overly simple, extremely bad text, overall just really lacking.

Unfortunately all the clean and high res in the world can't stop a box if it's just age-old pictures on basic gradient/shape backgrounds. I feel like this is something that was only created in a few minutes, even if that's not the case.

I do like the Dreamcast template, though.

Also, stop counting your points and sharing them. It makes you look like a point-whore. It's unbecoming.

Any box that has "Or will you fall and die?" on it does not deserve the Hall of Fame.

I'm joking of course! It's a nice clean box and looks well made so well done HCFB. Of course, the only reason this made it to the HoF is because Drakxxx and tleeart fav anything and they are both high-rankers but congratulations noneoftheless =D

I like it, but I think more should be going on with the background. Knuckles is badass, but I don't think the cover really says that. Still fav worthy though, and congrats on the HoF.

#48,

Like writing a code for a software, everything must compile flawlessly in order for it to run smoothly. If the program fails to run, improve on the code. Meaning if the back text is not something you can design, improve on it.

I like the simplistic design, the edges are pretty sharp and the color choice is pretty good. The text in the back isn't well organized, and uninteresting to look at. Think of compiling your boxart as an artform, if you truly have passion for design, try to innovate your designs in such ways you have never done before. Like for example, putting a table of text on each side of the back.
