I sent GameSpite Journal 12 off for color proofing today. It ended up eating my entire weekend, though; I had the whole thing laid out and suddenly realized the page designs seemed fine in the layout app but would look terrible in print. So I redesigned all 120 pages. Tedious, but I don’t want to publish crap, you know?
I decided to try something different with the cover. Last time was painfully simple, so I decided to go painfully loud and bright this time. Something that says, “SEGA!!”
It’s not too Sega, is it?

Gamespite does what other-independent-retro-focused-video-game-print-magazines don’t?
All I can hear in my head when I see this is the startup Sega sound… SE-GA!!
Funny, because that cover sounds more like the fast shout SEGA! from the TV advertisements.
Is there such a thing as too much Sega? Well, as long as you bring the rose-tinted glasses I guess ;)
You nailed it!
I’ve barely touched anything from Sega, but I am dying to read all about it from the GameSpite crew.
I definatly get the quick, yelling sega out of this
That cover makes it clear who does not have
that’s simply a fantastic cover, Jeremy! My hat goes off to you, sir!
I like it! But I don’t know if your fanbase will agree… they’re not known for their love of all things Sega.
Oh, now. You are a silly, silly person.
It’s quite good, but it kinda makes it look like we’re just covering Genesis games with this one from the cover. If it were me, I’d have like a sad dejected Opa-Opa peering out of the background.
… except the only pixel-art version I can think of for that would be bothersomely huge. Hmm.
How curious, given that Sonic image is from a Game Gear release, not Genesis.
Oh no, does that mean you canned that awesome SMS-boxart design on the interior? Either way, great cover.
Nope! Just rearranged it.
