OriginalFez cover art by Bryan Lee O'Malley.
Reason
A rare example of freely licensed video game cover art. Even rarer is that it's by a notable artist, Bryan Lee O'Malley. High resolution and delightful, it captures the theme and spirit of the game.

  • Support Agree with nom. Straight from the press kit so I'm not sure if this can ever be improved upon. Mattximus (talk) 20:54, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Support; I agree that it's about the best such picture we'll ever get. Tezero (talk) 04:52, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Cute!--Theparties (talk) 11:09, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. It's nice to see that, at least among indie developers, we're finally getting freely licensed visual assets (previously screenshots, now also a cover). I will continue to support them here (and nominate them here, when I'm the person that secures them), because I think that there is high encyclopedic value in them, and because once these start hitting the main page, it might encourage other studios to also release visual assets under free licenses.

  • Support. I'd maybe think twice about putting on the main page (perhaps make sure it's alongside a TFA on a traditional, scholarly topic!) but I'm certainly happy to see pictures like this featured. J Milburn (talk) 00:21, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - Hot damn! I think Bencherlite would enjoy having a reason to avoid a video game TFA. I don't think this would be too promotional as POTD, especially since we have screenshots too. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 06:33, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support (uploader). High-quality box art → high EV. The article's well on its way to FA, and just wait until you see the other media in the pipeline (the composer is compiling a medley). I've had a bunch of indie studios release assets recently, so I suppose I could bring more of them here. By the way, I didn't get a notification about the nom... just happened to run into this page. czar  07:40, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
    • I thought the link to your username would trigger an Echo notification, but maybe that's only limited to talk pages. - hahnchen 11:36, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
      • It works, but only after creating the initial page (i.e. you'd have had to ping Czar after creating this page). — Crisco 1492 (talk) 16:38, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, agree with all reasons given by nominator, Hahnchen, above. Cheers, — Cirt (talk) 19:04, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - Very colorful, free work, high resolution, and by a notable artist. I definitely approve of this. --Nicereddy (talk) 01:41, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, an amazing cover work with a smooth and colourful artwork. ///EuroCarGT 04:57, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
