The template is by RunawayRed. The wooden cartridge is 100% made and rendered by myslef. I made it before I even decided what the game would be. I picked Back to the Future 3 since it takes place in 1885, and the wooden cartridge seemed a somewhat natural fit.

I tried to make the box look the style of old NES boxes. That's why it's somewhat plain. I followed the common pattern of solid color background, solid color text square with the game logo as a header and some screenshots in TV frames.

The front's background is simply a wallpaper of the movie poster. However, I tweaked the hue, color, saturation and shading to try it look less like a movie poster, and more like an old NES box front.

Big thanks to the guys in my WIP thread (Adhiboy, Eggboy'13, stevencho, Spiderpig24, and MattStar.

Hey, that's really great! You can feel the "retro-feeling" in this one.

The only thing I don't like is the back... Something is missing. An "Eye-catcher" is missing, if you know what I'm talking about.

I think you did good on the back. Really solid retro feel.

#2, I think I know what you mean. I looked at every NES box back I could find. They are really dull looking. I added the slanted text tagline in attempt to spice it up but was worried about doing to much. My orginal background was far more elaborate, but it didn't fit the retro theme.

#3, Thanks!

One more fav, and this will have as many as my previous three boxes combined. The WIP has been a real help, and a lot of fun. I wish more new people used it.
