Some clever and talented person on Deviantart has created an image that shows what the Art Style DSi games might look like if they had been released in boxes and in the same theme as Skip’s previous experimental series, Bit Generations. The results are suitably stylish and leave me a little bit cold toward the whole digital download thing. On the one hand I’m grateful for the fact that DSiWare has allowed for these games to get a UK release where the Bit Generations games didn’t, but I sure do miss the tangibility of a lovingly designed and crafter physical product.
I guess if I was feeling really sad then I could save all my Art Style games to seperate SD cards and package them up in boxes made from these mock-up packages. Thankfully, though, my obsession hasn’t quite escalated to that level of fanatacism yet.
Thanks to the ever-interesting Tiny Cartridge for the heads-up.
