Out of curiosity over your Maze of Galious post, I reached out to Drew Struzan directly to see if he had any of those old game artworks lying around for the public to digest. According to him, the only games he illustrated directly were two Indiana Jones titles. It looks like either the Konami Goonies covers were either taken from movie materials he created, or that it’s not Drew after all.

Thanks a lot for doing this, ultrace! Yeah, that’s likely what happened. I think whoever the artist is for Maze of Galious, that person also did the cover for Miracle of Almana, which I also felt was very Struzanesque. This work is likely inspired by Struzan, but it’s inspiring on its own as well. I love it.

The Maze of Galious (1987) by Konami for the MSX. Also known as Knightmare II. The artist looks like it might be Drew Struzan, who did the Goonies cover for Konami, but I can’t find confirmation on this.UPDATE:Thanks to ultrace, we got confirmation that this wasn’t done by Struzan after all. Great work nonetheless.

Bounty Sword
(Sadly the best scan I could find).

Thank you, Killroad! It’s a lot bigger than what I have. I really dig this cover. I’ll clean this up in a bit when I have time.

Hello again!

I don’t know how many of you followed this blog way back, but I took a break from it to work on some game prototypes and build a future in independent game development. Well, I’ve been doing that, and I’d like to announce the Bmore Indie Games collective. You can read our first post to see what we’re building.

I’m very happy to have found other local game developers that want to build something cool together in Baltimore. I have done all my game development alone for so long that I didn’t know I was surrounded by so many passionate people who love it as deeply as I do. I’ll post new covers on Notable Game Box now and then, but most of my fire is going to go into making games.

This cover is for a Japanese game simply called “Shit” for the MSX by Eurosoft. It was also called “Oh Shit” in another release. For Europe, they renamed it to “Oh No”.

Double Target: Cynthia no Nemuri VS. Quartet VS. Quartet, 1987

This game was originally called Quartet in Japan as well, but was renamed because the Master System port was only two players.
