WTF IS STEAMPUNK
Nice pictures but not steampunk.
sweet, here comes the futurepast
10 = Waffle House of the 22nd Century?
Not as good as I thought they’d be, still good though. I agree with general lee, they’re not really steampunk… There’s a slight hint/essence of steampunk but I wouldn’t have classed it as steampunk.
how is this steampunk? wtf chive….
This isn’t steampunk.
THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAAA!
This is more like Kitchenpunk.
Half of those, if not all, were clearly inspired by kitchen utensils.
This looks more like what would happen if Tom Swift got hold of some giant kitchen appliances than anything steampunk …
Not steampunk. Maybe dieselpunk. There’s too many -punks these days, though. why not just call it like it is? 50′s era used kitchenware-punk.
still pretty sweet though.
I don’t really see the steampunk part, I think the one is a waffle iron, and I don’t think waffles are very steampunk…
little known fact: steampunk is actually much gayer than emo.
Where be the steam?!
This is a lot more cyberpunk than steampunk…
It looks like all he did was photoshop some windows on to kitchen appliances.
before, a cover is a promise. You need to fgirue out what the promise is as in, the thing that will wrap itself around the imagination of the customer in the first 5 seconds of seeing it, and then turn into their hopes for what the game will actually be.If I’m looking at repressed, muted, abstinent, riddled with inequity and paradox as your goal (more on that in a second), the cover absolutely needs to communicate that. Right now your cover dude of choice is a bit dapper, definitely victorian, and I’m not sure if I’m getting the rest.Now, that said, I don’t think repressed, muted, abstinent, riddled with inequity and paradox is the full sweep of the promise (again, more on that in a second), and further I think it over-sweeps. That’s not a 5-second message, there, that’s something with finesse, subtlety, etc, something that should develop through an appreciation of the text (and some choice words chosen for the back cover marketing copy).If I was coming to Perfect based on my previous understanding of it and thinking about the cover, I would start by thinking in Hollywood mash-up-ese, because I think that kind of construction gets to the heart of a 5-second message. So Perfect’s 5-second message the core of its promise, I think is 1984 meets Victorian England . 1984 carries the oppressive surveillance angle, everyone-is-watching etc, and Victorian England carries all of the visual styling that your product is going to embody. (Neatly, it also lays the groundwork for repressed, muted, abstinent, riddled with inequity and paradox because, hey, I think you’re describing Victorian England there.)Of the stuff you’ve done so far, the two lower ones (which are near as I can tell identical to one another) get the closest to delivering the mash-up language because you’re showing the fgirue in a spotlight, thereby implying the surveillance thing, but I worry that that’s too subtle. That said, subtle might be the right feel for your art, and you need to find the right compromise between the commercial imperatives of a cover and what you want your art to say.
