Here we have the cover for one of Valley’s upcoming titles, Supernova. I had thought it would be nice to take advantage of the “letterbox” format with a blast of light sweeping across the cover. The effect is dynamic and a bit captivating. Space themes allow the possibility of wild, dazzling color schemes. In this case the pinks, cyans and purples are quite unique and should allow the game to pop off the shelves that much better. Supernova’s premise is of the blast taking over neighboring systems. So here we have planets engulfed in the mighty blast. I’ve added some computery bips and bops for a slicker, modern feel. Hex shapes relate to the game components and the computery type can be game rules typeset in this manner.
