I really love artwork from the early days of videogames before it was set in stone that your product had to have a picture of a constipated soldier on the front in order to sell. I came across an old Apple II game called “Tass Times in Tonetown” a few days ago and can’t get over how great the game box art is, we’ll probably never again see a game where the player chases his grandfather through a vortex into the surreal environs of the titular Tonetown which is offered up as a pastiche of the 1980s featuring nods to New Wave and Punk culture all while your canine companion refers to himself as ‘Ennio the Legend’ (He also really pulls off some sweet looking Raybans).
Also in case you’re wondering what Tass Times are the creators have said:
“Muffy and I were employed there, teaching creative writing. And the motto of Harvard is ‘Veritas,’ which means ‘truth.’ We took to saying ‘very tass’ to mean, ‘very true,’ or ‘too true.’ Our students picked it up and started applying it to something that was cool. So very tass turned into very hip or cool.”
