Cover Art: City and Country by LoveandCake Cover Art: City and Country by LoveandCake
Cover art for a game concept I had in mind for some time now...

Bleeeeh.

I tried to put the Wii heading on the top,

like it was a real game :p

But, as you can see, I utterly failed :iconotlplz:


The game would be a lot like Animal Crossing,

but it would take place in the Mario Universe..! :shrug:

At the beginning you would take a personality test

to see if you're best suited for life as a City Slicker,

or life in the Country!

If you're a City kinda person, then you would move to Diamond City and work there and stuff.

The player would probably be like Mona, like you would work for Wario but do other various tasks day by day to make money :o


and if you end up as a Country kinda person,

than you'd move to the rural-like Toad Town and start something there.

I'm not sure what the player would do exactly.. .-. Probably be like Luigi there and fish and not exactly work and make money maybe..? I dunno. Either that or be a plumber X"D; But you'd meet Mario and Luigi and they'll be like Oh you should do this or that or whatever.. :faint:

As you can see this is a work in progress..

But maybe I'll make some sort of instruction booklet in the future..

not necessarily like tomorrow :"D I should say "the FAR future"

like many of my other projects :faint:

I like the pic in general, though.

It took forever, thats for sho @_@

I don't like Wario's pose though, his arms look weird :"D

I wish I noticed it when it was still a sketch, I saw it when I was coloring :p



I NEED A NAME FOR THIS GAME (shoots herself)

I was thinking something like "Mario Super [place noun here]"

8[ ...? eh?



CONTRASTING!!

City slickers would use cell phones to talk to friends!

Country people would send letters! Or "Snail Mail" as people in the city would call it.

In the city, there's a pizzeria on every corner!

In the country, there's a cute little lake to fish at!

The city's where busy business men work and wear ties!

The country's where humble farmers need to wear shady straw hats to keep the sun out of their eyes!!

:bow:

Super Mario Crossing.
Yeah no.
Umm...
Super Mario Lifestlye? Lifestories?
"Alot Happens In Between Those Kidnappings"
I think it would be funny if, like, the shopkeeper in Diamond City looked the same as the shopkeeper in Mushroom City, but they constantly critisized how horrible the other one looks?
XD Just a thought...
God, now I'm obsessed with this idea...

... and WTF spellcheck doesn't think "Luigi" is a word.

Oh, thats a really cool idea!

You should make a personality test for us to take...I wanna know if I'm a City Slicker or a Country Person xD

I wonder if Nintendo would actually take this idea if you sent it to them...

Looks great, I like how it has both your style and the sort of thick-lined style you see in the Wario Ware instruction booklets and general art style. Very much does look like a cover to the next game(which I really hope they spend time on the next game, and not just make a half-hearted effort on a launch title. Which is what they just did for DSiWare ): ).
