New box!
This one's for aldimon's Good Night Competition. I started making a Majora's Mask box, which ended up looking like crap and being scrapped, and moved on to making this one, for one of the best adventure games ever.

As always, constructive criticism is welcome, and thanks to aldimon, GameRoomProductions and lucidhalos for the help and feedback on the forums. :)

Hope you like it. ;)

Your recent works have been great! That front is gorgeous too, like an oldschool movie poster.

Thanks, dude! :D The whole thing was inspired partially by a Casablanca poster, since the game has that noir romantic vibe to it at some point.

The front is absolutely fantastic. You nailed the movie poster look.

The back however feels a bit unfinished, and leaves the box slightly disjointed. I feel like more could be done to improve on it.

I really don't know what to do with the back. I mean, I have another idea in mind for it, so I'll leave it on the comments, so you can see if you like it or not.

Thanks for the feedback, mate! :)

@FrankBedbroken link So here's another idea for the back. Does it look better or worse?

@FrankBedbroken I actually like this version a lot more.

Maybe you could try making the black border around the synopsis a little thinner.

@FrankBedbroken I actually prefer the original more so. I like the background, but my problem is still the summary. I must say the headline looks so much better in that style though compared to what I saw in the WIP thread. I think what's bugging me about the summary the most is the fact it's also capitalized and so large.

Also the fact there is no grounding of some sort on the back of that. It kind of just floats. I'm surprised you didn't take the concept in the front right corner and apply it to the back behind the summary to bring some repetition to tie things together. Like so: link

(It's choppy, but you get the gist of it).

I really do like your overall design however. Definitely fits the style of the game. It's also great to see how far you've gotten since your first box. So much improvement.

@lucidhalos Does it look better like this? link

@FrankBedbroken Looks better, but the frayed edges could be executed better. Something much more similiar to the front one.

@lucidhalos Probably a tad late, but I tried to do what you suggested. Did it come out good? link

@FrankBedbroken Better, but the top half needs adjusting. Try to do the same fray edge you did on the border on that.

This is great. I'm not a big fan of the font you used for the text on the back, I would rather not use black stroke on the text but aside of that, great work!
