Turrican Anthology

I am finishing work on a DVD cover for Turrican 1, I thought I should let you guys see my results so fare now we have a forum for it
What you think? is there anything I should change or add?, I havent made a dvd cover in years



New beta version updated 11 april:


Anyone know a good program to make 3D dvdcase images like above? the 1 im using does not have dvd templates, only normal game box as you might have noticed.

it seems a bit fat

is it standard amaray dvd-case dimensions?

Are you using high-res scans or shitty 72dpi scans etc.. I only use 300dpi (min) scans/images, the actual layout etc is fab tho

Can you attach them to eab too as opposed to using shittyshack pls

The dimensions should be fine as I printed 1 out, it fits fine in my dvd case of Battlefield 2. The 3D images are taken with a standard game box size since the program i use dont have dvd case so they got a small resizing.

Added a direct photoshop pic to view things better.

It looks fantastic, there are however a couple of things.

you are using 3 different logo's fonts for the turrican writing, the one on the back is obviously an ingame shot, but the front and spine should be the same logo (where is the spine logo from, I cannot find it in any amiga screenshots etc.

Try and avoid using screenshots as logo's etc in general as the 320x256/200 size doesn't resize too well, and looks not so good when it is (again spine logo )

An idea.. why not create a spanning spine set version too, that would indeed be awesome

Alright I see what you mean by the 3 different logos but which one should I then keep, the front or spine logo?

I found the spine login on a turrican site, it was their logo, I edited it slightly to fit my needs

A spanning spine set is what I had in mind when i started work, heeh the roman numeral will continue with II, III so it looks like a box set
I guess the other members will want a peace of Turrican work too but as long we can make a identical spine set, its no problem

Keep the front logo as that is not pixellated and is the official logo used in the day

The spine is a modified turrican3 logo.

If you are doing a spanning spine then get rid of the numerals and find/create a suitable pic to span the 3 boxes

Yes that is what I had in mind if nobody objects to the idea
The Triology edition can have another design though, I see no problem with that.

How did this end up then? Did you complete the box? And in a big, nice format?
