Picture of \"actual\" DNF retail box!
By actual, I mean complete fabrication. I did not make this, but it's amusing, especially with Gordon peeking over the top.

Good idea. Been awhile since we had a "Design a DNF box" thread.

How about it art folks? Ppst your version of what the DNF game box should look like.

Would the top of the box really only say DNF?

I made two. I prefer this one as it's tidier.

Unfortunately i couldn't find a nice "3DRealms" image so i had to make do with what i could get my hands on..... :/

[EDIT] I improved the edge of the flag.

I suppose. It was just a variant. Changed some of the thingies around. Oh and i made the 3DR image smaller as i decided it took up too much space on the "page" after looking at other boxes i have for other games.

Well let's just hope DNF isn't actually rated A. But that's some good stuff there Duoae.

Re: Picture of \"actual\" DNF retail box!
Thanks. Maybe they could release two versions. A Mature and an 18+ only (which is the A version above).

In actual fact we, over here get rgulated by PEGI, but i prefered the look of the "A" rating mark to the big 18+ lettering. Personally i think that DNF will be 15/16+ as lots of violent and sexual content games are at this rating. Doom 3 being an exception with 18+ which i don't really have an idea why when Thief 3 is 12+ and Warhammer DoW is 16+, BloodRayne is 15+.... plenty of blood in all of them. Does anyone know what Half life was rated as?
To be honest although i have no problem with rating agencies, they don't seem to rate games very consistantly. Same with films etc.

I think the DNF on top flap would be a great touch.

I like the nuke symbol with Flag and Duke Nukem forever in white over the flag.


Combine those two art works and put Duke on the front holding a CAR-15 with M203 launcher or a remington 11-87 shotgun attached, rested on his shoulder and barrel smokin. Desert Eagle in other hand pointed down to the ground. Also smokin. As the city of las Vagas reflects off of Dukes shades and his Gold plated DEagle.

Is this more to your liking?

I need a better picture of Duke. I don't like this one as he looks gozzy in it. Ugh! That mouth! The artist should be reprimanded!

Yeah it was the best pic i could find of Duke. Well done. I had to crop it a bit because there was a screenshot covering part of him. But it worked out well because it made him fit exactly where i wanted him to go - you can still tell what the symbol behind him is.....well if you know Duke

Re: Picture of \"actual\" DNF retail box!
a few minor nitpicks but otherwise:



the 'duke nukem forever' logo needs to be raised.

the nuke symbol in the back is barely visible. raise it once you raise the logo.

get rid of the explosion/sparks around the nuke logo, they look out of place.

instead, possibly put the las vegas skyline around the nuke logo or keep it black.

otherwise, i'd love that box sitting on my desk.

And you might want to do what I did for the gunfire effect. Take an eraser tool and set the opacity to 50% and then start erasing the layer with the gunfire around the fiery edges so that they have a more transparent look to it.
