HotD: Overkill’s unused artwork makes life better (Update)

You thought I wasn’t going to show up because Destructoid is going to be up and down all day, didn’t you? Well I’m here for the weekends so you’re not getting rid of me that easily. Just because you won’t be able to read my posts for large chunks of the weekend doesn’t mean I’m not going to write them. So buckle yourselves in everyone, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

To kick off this weekend of posts you can’t read I’m going to show you some images you probably won’t be able to look at, and if advertising/branding agency Fluidesign hadn’t posted them on their Flickr site as part of a case study for its promotional materials behind The House of the Dead: Overkill we would have never seen them anyway. There’s box art, ad art, and awesomely awesome t-shirts all mocked up for the fantastic (personal opnion that does not reflect Destructoid as a whole) game. If you haven’t played the game yet, then hopefully these mockups may convince you to check it out. It’s worth having around the house for when all you want to do is point at something, pull a trigger and then watch its head explode.

[Update: Flabzilla noticed that all the artwork has Wi-Fi connectivity plastered on it. Was online light-gunning a posibility at some point? It’s probable, and if so one wonders why they cut it out.]
