Being almost equal parts design geek as gaming geek, running across this on Kotaku the other day was a little too perfectly up my street to not share on SGN.
The story behind these beautiful covers is a simple premise – game boxart design for the most part, leaves a lot to be desired. So Olly Moss decided to reimagine what some classic game covers would look like borrowing from the richer heritage of book cover design. When Kotaku reported on his designs, more folks decided to join in on the reimagining, take a peek at some of my favourites.
The following are just a tiny selection from the new covers created by the folks over at the Something Awful forums, for the rest check out the links below.
