And… now it’s all finished, and I get to go have a free day or two. The rest of the Zombie Cinema materials, including the manual, game board and cover art, went to the printer today. Hopefully they won’t come back, as time is a bit tight; we’ll need to have everything printed and ready for compiling in Chicago a few days before Gencon.
To the left here I have the cover sheet Jari made for Zombie Cinema. The game will be sold in a VHS cassette case, which pretty much defines the format of the cover sheet. I’m largely in love with this packaging, as it allows for a well-traveling, reopenable, durable and cheap package. Most importantly, the game also looks really great, as it has this full-color sleeve art on a black (I think; Markku’s dealing with the details, so I certainly hope he’s getting black) case. It’ll be difficult for other indies to top this in terms of external quality. (I can so easily recommend this solution because we already did the Finnish run of the game with the same packaging idea.)
