BOX=ART review

 >Blood Money

Box art by Peter Andrew Jones

English artwork, first published by Psygnosis in 1989.

Designed for the European and American markets.  Atari ST version pictured.

Also available on: Amiga, Commodore 64 and DOS.


One of Peter’s finest, from an already bulging portfolio of exceptional box art by this prolific artist.


Blood Money like many of Psygnosis’ early box arts started life elsewhere, in this case as the cover to 70’s sci-fi novel: Protector by Larry Niven. It would continue Psygnosis’ trend of commissioning artworks from Europe’s hottest sci-fi and fantasy painters, following on from such great works as: Baal, Terrorpods and Menace.  


The in-game’s graphics share the box art’s other-worldly look up to a point but the connection is slight at best.


Blood Money today is one of Peters most popular artworks and can be found in his Solar Winds collection.
