Hmmm, I remember there was an annoying user that once kept posting "what is it" on everyone's boxes. Unfortunately the time has come for me myself to ask this. Aside from what I have recognised as a face on the front and an eye on the back, I cannot work out anything from this cover of what it's meant to be showing me.

A cover that cannot show meaningful information to someone who doesn't already know what's it's meant to be showing is a fundamental failure in package design. In this case the negative space is really making it hard to work out what you're looking at, and slapping a logo and the game's subtitle in Japanese right at the bottom doesn't help to alleviate the feeling that you didn't think this box through. It really feels like it's a slip cover for some special edition and there's another, more traditional box beneath it.

Sorry to be so critical, because I actually think you had some sort of goal and design philosophy with this box, but your description is unhelpful in working that out. I want to like it, but there are large problems that need to be sorted out.

I'd like to see you try another Metal Gear Rising box where you can tell what's going on :D
