So, I guess I will finish up the first four games.

I have been working on this for awhile. I wanted the aesthetic to remain similar to the Silent Hill 2 box... Simple, trying to tell a little, but only that with the design.

The crosses are meant to be negative space, and represent the subject of religion present in Silent Hill 3.

I will go with Silent Hill 4 next, as I have an idea in mind, and then finally Silent Hill.

Credit to Indexenos for the template, as usual!

Definitely favorited. It's very simple and minimal, but it does a great job of portraying the themes and atmosphere of the game.

After seeing this box is probably the most I've ever wanted to play SH3.

Thank you both!

A special thanks does have to be extended to Slyder. I PM'd him awhile back asking for help, and he gave me some pointers and advice.

My thoughts on this remain the same. Excellent use of negative space, textures and minimal use of text.

Good work.

#8, that sort of is the whole point of the concept. As much as I over-use this word and sort of hate it, I took a minimalist approach to these boxes.

Essentially, less is more. There are two crosses, and the box even mentions God, so you know there's some sort of religious aspect to the game. The grunge conveys that this won't be a family-friendly game, either.

I am not trying to attack you for saying something negative, just trying to fill in some of the details I had left out!

I haven't played Silent Hill, but I do like the simplistic feel you put on this.

I love the vague, eerie atmosphere this cover creates. Bone chilling!
