What did you think of the cover art we released last Friday? Yes we have been teasing Sonny Joon for a while now, and to clarify, yes it is Sonny on the cover art. I personally am really excited because Sonny, to me, turned out better than I imagined.
Our style of the cover art and box layout design is our signature look nowadays: small details hidden around the illustration show minor (or “secondary”) important features of the game that surround the center-most important element. There is a picture of George in the top left corner, hanging onto a bridge. To the right is an underwater submerge-able with a character inside, and many competitors are shown at the base. Have you noticed the circle of logos on the ground?
Sonny Joon is centered on the illustration over the shattered medallion pieces because he is the most important part, along with of course, that medallion.
So what do you suppose Sonny is up to in this next game? Why have we made him the center of the art? What is he thinking? More info will come in the near future, and more questions may arise later when the trailer is released.
For now, save this cover art onto your desktop and remember when pre-orders begin! Also, we have made Sonny Joon’s concept illustration available in the merchandise store. Who wants a Sonny t-shirt? I DO!!! I will soon begin working on the cover art design for the store, so keep coming back to learn when that becomes available. 😉
