So yeah, after a little more than a year since last time I return with a box for a game that have become very dear to me, so dear I would say it's one of my favorite games this console generation but enough about that. Making a box for this game have been on my mind for months and I have had many ideas over the course but none of them really panned out and I got into a creative slump, which really wasn't helped by my computer dying on me. However this was a slump which I got out of this week and what you see above is the result.

Check it out in full view or the printable for better quality and as always your critique is welcomed.

I'm happy to be back and hopefully it wont take a year until next time :)

If you tell me where you got the Black Scrawl symbols, I'll be your friend forever. Did you find them as a brush?
Or..it looks like you remade them with Illustrator?

Ah, by beloved Nier. Such an underrated gem, and one of the best games of the past year. Respect for feeling similarly towards it, Whoomp.

Needless to say, this is simply splendid. The prominent, almost overwhelming presence of the Black Scrawl is one of it's strongest aspects, and as a whole this does perfectly to represent the game. Welcome back, and great work.

The front is good but there is a symbol overload, the back is also well done, but a bit plain, overall very good.

#5, 6, Thanks guys!

#7, Yeah, it got some undeserved bad press right at the release and many missed out on it. Thanks for your comment!

#8, I see what you mean but the symbol overload is an important aspect of the game and I really wanted to incorporate it in my design. Thank you though, I will see what I can do about the back.

I think it's pretty good, but I think the Black Scrawl is maybe a bit much. And I think you should do more with the tagline, description and screenshot borders.

There's a spelling error here, "plague" is spelled "plauge" in both places it's mentioned. I'd also replace "visceral, all action" with "action packed" because "visceral" is now used to describe like, every AAA-game known to man.
