This came out of a dream I had. No joke. I have no idea if it's good or not.

I used only two colors. Full view, please. Thank you.
Enjoy.

EDIT: I credit my inspiration on the bottom half of the front to ColonCatastrophe, and in turn, Bernbaum of Neogaf.

I can credit dreams for close to 10 of my boxarts. It happens a lot.

Great work though. I love the simplicity of it all.

I am so sick of this concept being done to death, but god damn it this looks good! My only complaints are the PS3 logo, it's hard to read, and having "would you kindly" on the back is not a good decision in my opinion, but I suppose this is a box for people who already love the game.

Nice job putting a spin on an over used idea though, it's really nice.

#9, Thank you, I'll update the PS3 logo tomorrow, that was the only part of the box I was unsure of.

I think the city in the front's bottom should be smaller, I'd dare to say it's not that close to the surface.

It's weird how often people will design a cover that will take away some of the most powerful parts of the game by either spoiling them or referencing them. You can't just stick "Would you kindly" anywhere, out of context, and expect it to have any kind of relevance. You're pretty much telling players "Hey, keep an eye out for "Would you kindly." except by doing that, you're robbing the impact it has on the player because now the whole game players are going to be thinking "Oh yeah, there's that thing." every time it comes up.

I think it looks absolutely fantastic, but I also think you should ditch the quote. Although I feel it's worth noting that grunge design style and art deco doesn't mix very well.

This is very nice, I like the colours you used and the twist to the original design, very nice indeed.

This is going to be a stupid comment but the bottom has been done before with the waves which doesn't make sense because in the middle of the ocean the sea is usually flat unless it's storming. So if it wasn't waves but more curves I think it would look better.

#28, if somebody, by some odd chance, didn't know what Bioshock was about, they wouldn't understand the city was underwater if it was just flat. At least you can deduce that it is water by the stylized waves.

#28, It's clearly not supposed to be a realistic portrayal of any scenery. It's composed of symbols, and that choppy look is a universal symbol for water.
