Illustrator Olly Moss swore off posting any more Video Game Classics -- his project reimagining boxart for video games like GoldenEye, Metal Gear Solid, and Half-Life as Penguin-style book covers -- earlier this year after producing just six pieces.
He did so partly because he believed "the video game book redesign meme caught on very quickly to the point that [he felt] it would be derivative to work on it any more", but also because he was asked not to publish any more until a related project was revealed.
Moss posted his contribution to that project over the weekend -- new covers to be featured in an Edge article on evergreen games. The four titles to receive the Video Game Classics treatment include Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, The Sims 2, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Buzz: The Music Quiz. See them all after the break!
