If anyone has seen it yet,

is the box size like the City (AKA tiny and awesome) or more like a Race for the Galaxy box size (Boo!!!)

In between, like a Race expansion box.

The game comes with lots of VP chips for ease of scoring.

I like my Race for the Galaxy box ! All those premium-sleeved expansions take some space =)

if the game's mechanics are simpler and targeted at more mainstream gamers, though, it makes sense to reduce the box's size - reduces shelf presence, but the game's a lot less intimidating that way and more likely to be bought on impulse.

Though really, I think that style of space art on game covers tends to intimidate would-be gamers too; maybe it conveys a "cold, alone, and calculating" feeling. Especially as this one seems a bit... bland.

A cover akin to the Contact Specialist's illustration - or the Gathering Storm's cover, I really like that one - could feel a bit warmer, friendly and social.

Bland? That spaceship is hyper-jumping directly into a planet! That's hardcore! You can practically hear the wailing electric guitar solo.

Didn't Journey use this picture as an album cover at some point?

Sort of. Journey's "Escape" album shows some sort of pod jumping AWAY from some kind of metal-shelled planet. But the planet is in the upper-right and the pod is in the lower-left, so the overall effect is similar.

Same artwork was on the Atari 2600 game cartridge. Now that was a very weird game...
