Thanks for the advice. I'll have to do a bit more research to see what works. Thanks again

I like the box art, the 3d feel from round the corners are a nice way of cropping the image into a dense action shot that sort of unfolds. Maybe I play too many video games this seems like a weird thought. Well played sir

IMO, the logo doesn't "pop" from the background. A stronger outlining effect might be helpful?

That's a good suggestion.

If you look at the GW games boxes, the typography is really crisp and clear. Zero confusion as to the company or product.

@JohnHwangDD: I was just taking a peek at the GW boxes since I agree that the Titanomachina logo could 'pop' a bit more. Mostly they seem to be a light logo over a dark background, so we'll see what we can do. Thanks for pointing that out!

You could possibly "backlight" it, doing the inverse. The thing that I recall most is high contrast titles. White/Yellow lettering on Black/Navy.

It's a good idea. So far the graphic designer is a bit busy completing all the campaign images, but I'll show off the box again once we get that squared away.

Here's some artwork from the in-progress Kickstarter. Looks like three weeks to go:

The dork is awful. Replace him with something else, a generic icon. Or just the logo. Or nothing. I don't understand why you wouldn't use the yellow titan head fro the player board instead.

Also, not sure why you specify 1 Rulebook and 1 Gameboard, when it's just Rulebook & Gameboard.

Dice count seems high - are these the little starter dice, or larger dice? I'd prefer 6x Zombicide size dice vs 12x tiny generics. Starting with 6 small generics allows you to upgrade to customs and larger dice as SGs. Also sell additional sets.

Those are 16mm dice. Extra dice are added as part of stretch goals.

As for the dork, well, I just get such a "Well, actually..." vibe that kind of suits the enumeration of everything in the box.

No worries. It's just a quick reaction

I like to think of him as a Euro-Shinji. He's also the face of the Pugnacious personality in the game, where you score extra points for smashing opposing Titans.

Oh, OK, but unless you introduce him during the KS, as a point of introducing pilots, people won't know that. Are pilots as important as robots? I assume not, as they're not included as miniatures nor featured on the box cover art.

From what I see peripherally, from the outside, the yellow robot is your iconic image and you should lead with that, using the blue robot for contrast.

The yellow robot is being used on a bunch of other KS pieces.

On a fluff note, the robots don't have pilots. They do have crews, whose main task is to provide maintenance, and sometimes a meatbag-eye's view of the immediate tactical situation.

Speaking of the stars of the show, someone is taking well to their new coat of paint:

Wishing him much success with his campaign!

Nice, but no color in the logo? Straight B&W?

Really like the building stickers. Pics of them applied?

The game as such isn't my thing ... I'm not into this particular aesthetic ... but it's obviously a passion project for you and I think it's incredibly cool that you're realising it! Seriously, congratulations.

Yup. When I start turning a profit its possibly something to revisit. I'd rather put the resources to the game first.

Thanks! I think getting some stickers printed and applied to the prototype is the next order of business.

Thanks for clarifying. I assume it would be orange and green if/when you ever colorize it?

I'd be more partial for pink/purple for the company logo.

Feedback is both useful and appreciated!
