Hi guys,

We need your help. Zombie Tsunami is launching on KS May 9th, and we are still trying to figure out what would be the best box visual. A is what we got now but B would be closer to the original video game. Please vote by commenting A or B below! Thank you!

You can find more information about the game here: http://zombie-tsunami.launchrock.com





Again, thank you!!
Vincent.

I saw pale kings and princes too, Pale warriors, death-pale were they all; They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci Hath thee in thrall!’

First one- the green reminds me too much of TMNT and the purple feels more appealing to me. I also like the content of the ark work better- one is showing active conflict and more variety of characters might see in the game, the other more like I'm about to get overrun with green lemmings.

ETA- I have no knowledge of the original game, just to be more clear about where I am coming from as someone viewing a KS project.

A. The purple and green complement each other well, and the overall design is also more appealing.

A

Don't know the video game.
I kinda like the green of B more, but the artwork on A is much better, more "alive". On B it looks a bit "flat"

A is definitely more engaging. The larger creature gives you a nice focal point. The purple contrasts the green, making the zombies stand out more. It just feels more fun.

B your eye goes the tidal wave first, which is the least interesting part of the cover.

I definitely like A better. I have no knowledge of the video game, but I'll say that the greater variation in character designs and character sizes on A makes the artwork much more interesting and dynamic.

Vincent,

I like A better. Pink stands out more than green, plus the cute factor balances out the horror factor from the zombies, making it more delirious.
The artwork is much more interesting, even though I agree that B is closer to what the app is about. But A looks more fun, more silly, and there's more variety, leading us to believe the game will be more interesting than B.

A makes me think I will control humans trying to fight zombies.
B reminds me that the game is about controlling zombies, not fighting them. Keep that in mind.

A shows the components, so it'd be better as a front image for the KS campaign.

I prefer A... and would rather be drawn in by a wave a zombies (zombie cubes... awe, so cute) than think about an actual tsunami. Plus that is a great point that it shows the components more clearly.

I prefer A, for many of the reasons that have been put forth by others.

I like A myself just really jumps out at you. Sitting on a shelf I think the colors would make you gravitate to it.

Just an opinion...

Both IMO are good. I prefer the character art and its finishing in A, while I like more the background (tells better the scene) in B. But actually I'd prefer to keep A as it is. That magenta is probably better, in A, than the green for the box.

All in all, I probably would go for A.

We are going to incorporate better the Tsunami in the A and try.

I feel that A looks much better compared to B.

Firstly, A has better contrasting colors, which makes all the different parts of the box stand out more and really catch the eye.

Secondly, the whole scene in A looks much more interesting and dynamic than B. A looks a lot more visually appealing as a result.

I also think that by going with A, you will set the tabletop game apart from the video game (which I am not familiar with), which is a good thing if people are Googling one or the other. If both boxes look too similar, people might waste time shopping for the wrong product. Using A will also prevent that from happening.

Overall, both boxes look really great, but A is definitely the winner here! Good job!

A is definitely more eye catching. Tho I do agree that it's a little weird that there's no actual tsunami on the image but the composition is slightly more important in my opinion.

A definitely A. B is OK, but A is more visually interesting and has more going on.
