Brutal Legend box art ushers in impending Rocktober arrival

We don’t do “check out this box art” posts that often, but we make our exceptions. Double Fine’s Brütal Legend is one of those exceptions. So, you know, “check out this box art.”

Of note is designer Tim Schafer’s name plastered proudly on the front of the box, above the the game’s logo. “A Tim Schafer Game.” Not sure how much that will resonate with the average consumer (maybe “A Tim Schafer game starring Jack Black” would have been a smarter marketing move?). But Schafer has consistently kicked ass with his work (maybe you’ve heard of it?), so I for one welcome his name being plastered on the box. 

What do you think?
