Just going to throw on another classic cover that always makes me think back to being 5 years old :)

I really need to get a poster of it for the spare/games room :mrgreen:

Unlike most of the garish cover art that adorns PlayStation games, this was simple, effective and classy with the shiny gold text and logo outline being a nice touch!

I'd love to see what the original actually looked like (it only features bits of the artwork that Wakelin painted) but you'll have to bug Jon Ritman to find out. He managed to buy it before I could get my hands on it heh...

Darkseed’s box was the first thing that came to mind with me. For one it featured HR Giger’s artwork, but the packaging itself was also quite unique and unusual. The Main Box was wedge shaped with the thin end at the tip, the 45º angled square with the main artwork was a separate box that held the disks which inset into the main wedge shaped box.
