This is a nice label. I wouldn't want to be the one judging them.

I tried to make mine look a little like the atari 2600 warlords cart, but with brighter colors, it only took me about 1 hour to make.

So many nice entries I must say...I seriously doubt my idea of a picture of the Trojan Rabbit would have done much ;)

I think the submissions should be accompanied a description by the software used to render them, so that we can be impressed by the skills of the one guy who's still plinking pixels in MS Paint! :D :D

Mine typically involve a FujiFilm MX-2700 and Photoshop 3.0.5 (and no spell checker, obviously)

I used a photo of myself with my Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera, a photo of a castle from my personal photo archives and Photoshop 6.

Happy Holidays

I like this one...Something about it reminds me of warlords a bit. (One of my favorite games)

It seems to me that the dark knight in the middle of the picture looks like the knights heads in the castle of the game.

It kinda gave me chills

If I had a vote it would be....

I dunno, Henry Lee put HIMSELF in the label, you gotta award some points for that!

I wish I were a judge. Colin Finch's labels are better for a N64 or something, but I give major points for the cool goofy dragon on label 3. There is nothing dark and postmodern about a 5200, as much as we'd like to think so :D

All three of Jeremy Tirrell's labels are GREAT.. bright, quick title recognition, I have to go for #2 as his overall best, except the flameball should have been reversed so it's incoming vs outgoing.

Manu Parssinen's first entry looks GREAT as well, shows the title clearly, and pretty much sums up the game.

ER.. my man.. o MS Paint master.. you are NEARLY THERE with this label, but you made it too busy and the title is hard to see. A Rev B on this would be kickass, with a more prominent font and maybe reverse the horseman and the trebuchet so they're white or highlighted against the knight you rendered so well (but chopped into ribbon shards because of the limitations of your drawing program).

Can we have a semifinal for the labels? Pick the best 5 and give a week to submit improvements on the original design?

Thanks for those kind words General Atarian, as you can tell, I tried to make it look like a newer version of the 2600 Warlords picture, since that what the game is but for the 5200 , using brighter colors to make the label stick out more.

This now makes the 7th label design contest I have entered and I keep making old school type label designs for these great new games, but I keep losing to Photo pictures, so I might just start doing for the next contest what most other people are doing.

:D :( :roll:

Congrats! That was the label I would have chosen too (mine was too rushed). :D

Also...

"Bryan Edewaard has revealed that everyone who entered the contest will have their name hidden in the game. "

That rules! We're all winners =D


Congrats again!

I want to say how tough it was to decide. There was a lot of great art submitted and I went back and forth quite a bit.

I wish I could make one of those labels that looks different from different angles (I've forgotten the name of this clever lens technique). That wouldn't raise the cost much, would it Al? :)

Thanks to everybody!

Well I was going to wait on buying a 5200 system untill the Airworld game project was finnished and being sold, but if you do make this cart with that type of label, then I will buy the 5200 just to play your game bryede.

:roll: :D :D
