Fair enough, also I tried to balance out the colour, because I thought that Shizune and Misha on the back kinda contrasted with the sketch on the front, hence

@The above guest

You colored parts of the original sketches.

And now it looks like Lilly has green hair.

Yeah, I was a little unhappy about that too, but I don't think it's too much of a problem. People usually don't look at the front and the back at the same time.

Hahaha, maybe she did that when she was in the rebellious stage of her adolescence. Dying her hair green and getting all kinds of body piercings.

The thing I don't like about the cover is... the color. The specific brownish brings to my mind an image of a cave, therefore making a first impression of the game being about prehistoric times- a wrong impression.

I think it gives more of a classical feel than prehistoric. Reminds me of some of the parchment I saw in Pirates of the Caribbean, so 19th century and earlier might be a good guess. I suppose it really just depends on the taste of the viewer.

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.
It wasn't. I yanked it off the Mishimmie because I thought it looked cool and would probably work. I have next to no artistic talent, hence why that project never went anywhere, heh.

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
Godlike, i thank you from the bottoms of my tar filled abyssal pit of the damned.
oh, and my heart~
It also must have taken a long time for you to make this, so now that you've done this we need to have a Blu-Ray verison.
Hurry up, you can still make it!

After tossing around the idea, i thought i'd give this a try. I made two, but i forgot to turn off the template i was using before saving. so you'll see the template font through one of them.

used a lot of the pictures and textures from the forums are web-sight. Redid this probably about half a dozen times before i was satisfied with it.

Build off of Peorth 's idea of using a certain picture as cover art. Except for forgetting to turn off the template, i thought this turned out pretty well.

I'll let someone else who knows what he's talking about pick apart the specs and blurbs, but that one is all kinds of 'NO'.

Also, your second attempt is way too busy, Snicket, template font notwithstanding.

I like the first one Snicket made, the most of all in the thread.

The first one is pretty faithful to the design of the website, that's definitely a good thing. The title and the Japanese symbols seem kind of blurry, though. The backside of the second picture seems a little thrown together. It would be pretty cool if it had the same style like the front, meaning that the pictures should look like photographs with those red pins in the corners.

I like the epilepsy warning, but it could be even more releavant if it was replaced by a HNNNGGG warning.

Maybe those 8 GB include the space required for all the screenshots that people will take while playing the game. :D

Holy jesus man, this isn't the crysis of VN's. I could run this on a 2k machine with a 550mhz processor and a low-end 98-era graphics card (MGA-G200 to be exact), and the program folder is under 200 Mb filesize. In fact, you could reduce it from a DVD-ROM to a CD-ROM, since the installer, and even the uncompressed game is under a CD-ROM's capacity limit. And why do you have UMD on there? A UMD is a small disk, like what the PSP uses.

Though if you want to be accurate with system requirements, ask PyTom and Delta, as PyTom made ren'py and Delta's head of programming.

But besides the insane system requirements I like the first one better, though I think the front cover seems too blank. maybe put little drawings of the 5 girls around the heart or something.
