As we've explored previously, video games β€” especially the classics β€” deserve better box art than they're getting. Wonder what we want instead? This is the kind of stuff we want.

These retro-inspired pieces by Boris Lechaftois are another take on 2010's "video games as old books" thing, but in this case there's no books to be used as a crutch. These are just lovely, minimalist designs, ones that we'd love to see adorning the matte-finished, digi-pack boxes of all these games when they're inevitably re-mastered and re-released.


You can check all these out over on the artist's society6 site, with some of them even available as prints for purchase.
