Custom Boxes for LucasFilm/LucasArts games 

Hi, this is my first post here. I live in Italy and I am a photographer. I was born in 1977 and I grow up playing with C64, Amiga and PCs. One of the best memories I always keep, is the hours spent playing my point 'n click adventures. I still have some. Few months ago I played again a couple of adventures on my old Amiga but since my house is too small I cannot keep at home, so I brought it back in another place.

So I decided to use ScummVM to play sometimes. I love to have my retail copies so I didn't want to store my best games on a HD or a simple CD.. here came the idea. Make some custom boxes of those games, smaller but with all the feeling and content of the original Big-Boxes.

I wanted to share with you my work. Here's the first one I made: Monkey Island.

In each pic on the left you can see the original one, on the right mine custom Smile (sorry is the second one is blurred but I made in hurry)


The box contains the manual, the Dial-a-pirate a CD with all versions of MonkeyIsland (scummvm, UAE), floppies (I left them below the cd, sorry Very Happy ) and the Quickstart reference sheet.

A box usually takes me up to 1 day.. I was thinking maybe to make few if someone would be interested in. In the next days I'll show you the other one I made Smile

Thanks Smile

Cute idea...and they look very professional, like it.

If you take requests i'd have some for you (looking to box my adventures i had to buy without the original box)

Hardcore collectors will probably go for original size boxes...even if re-created, imho
If you are planning to do original scale models, you might have a small buisness on your hands Smile

Then again, it's your hobby and you should have fun Wink

Anyway, nice work, the first box looks really well done

P.S.: Does a jewel DVD case fits in? Looks a little too small...

Well I can make it like original ones in size, but they will look "fake" compared to the original one. I decided to make small just to have some custom one. But I can consider the idea. I decided to have a plain color for the background of the box just to let know that it's not the original. Smile

I've take a picture of my box and a dvd.jewel case (i've choose the do with Deponia to have a little idea of the size. It should not be a problem to make some centimeters bigger to fit the jewel case.

Here it is:
