Does the game have to be real?

Umm...well, no, you can make games that aren't real :D

Here is mine: :D

It was a good attempt, but the back of the cover is rather hard to read and plain. No in-game screenshots? And the spine art is rather bland.

Sorry if this is a noobish question, but i don't really know what is a spine art
And I think I forgot to put in-game screenshots :(
Anyway I'm working on a new cover, it's called Tomb Raider Original Trilogies, I may finish it today :D

It's the bit in the middle which is sideways and says Tomb Raider Underworld. :)

Catracoth
02-08-10, 13:17
Spine art is like, the label. In this case, the middle of your picture.

Tomoraider
02-08-10, 13:20
Oh that! Thanks for explaining

I love making covers. :D

Spine arts are always just white backgrounds with black text here. I think the only place I know of that does them differently is the US.

PC and a lot of PS3 games have "proper" spines.

I prefer games with white spines. Anything else is just an eyesore on my shelf.

It was fun to make. :p

02-08-10, 14:09
Nice work, Nate! But I think the stained glass windows ought to be shifted a bit to the right so that the centre window aligns with the logo.

Thanks, and that's how the alignment in the original pic (http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070106035613/kingdomhearts/images/9/93/Dive_into_Heart.jpg) is. Floating Sora, the window up top, and the pillar are all not aligned perfectly. :)

jarekhanzelka
02-08-10, 14:45
Oh yeah I remember that! If it wasn't for the scamped text at the back cover, it would be excellent.:tmb:

Anyway, this is probably the second worst one I ever made.

I love your covers Keith and Nate, I would be happy to have them as an official cover for said titles! :D

I never make fan covers or anything like that, so this is very amateurish :p But regardless, my dream game:
