BOX=ART is a site dedicated to the history of video game box art/ cover art and the artists responsible for them.
Box arts are profiled from a variety of angles using high quality scans and with the intention of acknowledging the men and women who have played such a major role in shaping our gaming experiences.
Not only for video game enthusiasts, BOX=ART is for all who enjoy quality artwork.
She would coin the artwork as “Savage Lands” after the games topography. The artwork would sit firmly in line with Julie’s other early 90’s cover arts (Eternal Champions, Defender of Rome II) exuding a detailed, high fantasy look and painted in the artists preferred media, oils.
Japan would unsurprisingly not use Julie’s art. Instead, it interestingly removed the series’ usual western barbarian look and replaced it with a “Koei war game” style box art by illustrator Jun Satoh.
