Not content to let Olly Moss have all the fun with his ongoing series of classic Penguin book design inspired videogame covers, the Something Awful forums have started their own thread which, when I checked yesterday, hadn’t quite produced Something Amazing, but now is up to some 23 pages of jaw-dropping work, particularly those above.
Not everyone picked up on Moss’s proclivity to zero in on a single game-defining visual pun (the TF2 and Killer 7 covers which nail the style over the substance), but all are quite gorgeous in their own right.
Massive bonus points to any developer/publisher with moxy enough to take the meme to its logical end and let stuff like this propogate retail shelves by the end of 2009.
