My entry for Round 2 of HalfSwiss' La Competencia: link

The theme was to create a sequel to a game so I decided to make a spiritual successor to Red Dead Redemption. I actually made the slipcase first and then progressed onto the actual box. It's made from Western backdrops, film shots and Red Dead Redemption and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood screens. Here are some source images:

Please give me some feedback and thanks for viewing.

Do you seriously think anyone can beat you now? We are all screwed. Like, "advanced screwed"

For my entry, my Gun 2 box, I used wallpapers from Tombstone.

The description text on the back has too thick of an outline.

#2, it depends what people think of it first, it might not be very popular. It was the final entry so I decided to put a little bit more effort in.

#3, there must be something else that's putting you off this box? ;)

#5, The back overall, the outlines on the back looks too thick, the outline around the tagline, and the description text.

#6, ah right. It was just the style I was going for, being consistent with the front and all.

Just noticed Jevan un-faved my box, I'm just curious why? It's difficult to get people to leave feedback.

This seems more like a branch of RDR than a spiritual successor but I really like this box. I think the contrast is a bit high on the back but I like the front a lot and I like how it's neutral in color instead of red or blue. Good work.

Aww I though it would have something to do with Jack Marston. Still an unbelievable case.

Really great job. I could see this as being an official successor to RDR. The slip cover is fantastic, and I think the actual box looks very nice too, especially the front.

#8, GTA games rarely ever build upon the story of the previous games, and are all spiritual successors. Red Dead Redemption was a spiritual successor of Red Dead Revolver, so this is the same. Also, I was going for a high contrast, minimal colour back. Thanks for the favourite and feedback!

*SPOILER* *SPOILER* *SPOILER*

#10, I was thinking about it, although if you read the newspaper at the end, it says Eadgar Ross had retired - the man who killed John along with the army. So there couldn't be a direct sequel with his son... as there'd be nothing to do. The end of the game is 1914 anyway, the American West was practically at an end.

*SPOILER* *SPOILER* *SPOILER*

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you like the box.

#13, Did you do the "Remember my Family" Stranger Quest?

Joeseye 47 [ 1 decade ago ]

#14, not yet. I kind of stopped playing it after I'd completed the main story. I didn't know there was any other strangers - there was nothing left to do on my map. I'll go back on and have a look sometime tomorrow.

#14, I've just done that stranger quest. I guess it proves my point even more, as there couldn't really be a story with Jack Marston - there'd be nothing to do.

You inspire me but at the same time make me feel like a loser. :p
Great box, good luck in the competition.

#5, Now that I think about it, I could ask you the same question about all of my covers. You have yet to leave one comment on any of my works, inFAMOUS 2 didn't count, (not a major problem at all considering no one really does anymore), but I feel like I shouldn't give someone feedback when they haven't shown me the same consideration back. (A bit immature but, I dunno).

I'm just wondering, there's no hint of you liking / disliking my work at all. (You don't need to comment on my works, it was a question of curiosity).

#20, I tend to only comment on people's works if I notice something in particular, I really like it, or really dislike it. I'm sorry if I haven't, some box thumbnails just don't catch my eye. In response to your post, it's just "The description text on the back has too thick of an outline" didn't seem like a big enough warrant to dislike the whole box (on the assumption that you didn't favourite it) - I was just curious what else you didn't like, it was in jest, man XD.

Good point, I have nothing to say back, although you know I like your works, just look back on what I've commented on. In my eyes receiving a fav is extra, receiving a comment means, (I saw your cover, and I respect you enough to tell you what and what I don't / do like).

A fav without a comment doesn't mean much, because I can't tell what you liked about it, vice versa.

How could there be a sequel? If you truly beat the game....it's kind of over.

*SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER*

After John gets killed and you start playing as his son, you can track down Ross in an extra quest and do with him what you will.

#31, thanks for the favourite. The theme was to make a sequel to any game, regardless if that game was already a sequel.
