DVD cover

Now you can burn the game on a CD/DVD, put it in a proper case and give it to your little sister as a present.

The measures of a common DVD cover are 273x184 mm (width is divided into 129.5 mm back + 14 mm spine + 129.5 mm front = 273 mm).

On the top left of the backside, there's still some room for a quote. You know, these stupid quotes by journalists or famous persons that you sometimes find on the backside of DVD cases. They usually go like
"Fascinating" - random famous person
"A masterpiece" - random magazine or newspaper
"If you don't watch this movie, you suck" - random guy
Yuuko > Misha > Emi > Hanako > Lilly > Shizune > Rin

very cool. except that... I don't know, it's just me, but I think that the cover needs some special pro fan made image actually made to be a cover image.
I maybe be fantasizing too much, but it's just an opinion.

Oh, I've even seen this Vitruvian Man shop on the Shimmie before, but I didn't know it was created as part of a DVD cover. It's a great idea.

I think it looks good, but the front cover could use a custom picture instead of the original sketch...

Basically what Smoku said :P

Its nice, looks quite professional, like a game found in a store... I find myself agreeing with the other posters. There should be some cover (fan) image made by a pro... otherwise, its looks very good
"If Hisao took one thing away from his time at Yamaku it was the fact that people who have handicaps don't actually have handicaps. People like Lilly and Shizune are more able-bodied and well-adjusted than most of the kids at Hisao's old high school. He shook his head slightly. No, students at Yamaku weren't handicapped; everyone else was." - WetCrate

I like both the Vitruvian Man shop and the original Raita page as part of a DVD cover.

The special edition DVD of Katawa Shoujo should come with one of these.

I'd love to see a fan-made "special edition" of KS that comes in a nice box and CD/DVD when the full version is released. I know the devs don't take donations and encourage donating to charity instead, so what about using special boxed editions as a fund raiser with proceeds going to said charity?

As much as I would love to see that I think it would likely be more trouble than its worth. It would require worldwide shipping and also would require several sales permits since technically you are paying for an item to be shipped to you. it would also have to make certian other protical before shipping. I would see it being better to release a cover that can be printed like the above and keep that as an option and just encourage more charity donations.

Nice work, its just that PC Games usually don't have regions printed on the box

Ah, I see. I don't buy computergames very often, so I didn't really know about that. Also, I've been using movie cases as reference material. But there was another reason why I put a region code on the box: I wanted to show that KS is an international project, therefore region 0.
