Something I did at college as part of my work, where I had to make a Encyclopedia cover...and usually Encyclopedia covers are usually dull with only having plain covers with plain letters. So I thought I'd make a Encyclopedia of Computer games.

The cover is (as u probably can tell) is heavily based on the 1982 BBC TV series of "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" with a name similar to the actual show as well as having the computer graphics from the guide as the front cover to give it that retro feel.

Here is a clip of HHGTTG about the Babel Fish: [link]

The computer consoles in question are:
White = Original Game Boy
Blue = PSone
Red = Magnavox Odyssey (First ever Home Games Console)

Hope u all likes ^^

Hi there

Well, the Atari 2600 was so popular (as well as being released so early) while the Odessy although being the first console released (back in 1972) it didn't sell as well and stuff, while the Atari (released 5 years later) proved greatly popular and made many people believed it was the first console...oh well, thanx for the comment ^^

That's a pretty nice, simplistic design you had done there.

And yeah, first thoughts on the design before reading the comments, were HGTTG. =P So, I think it's a fair assumption to say that you've achieved that portion of it.
