icon Akella cover art for DROD: The City Beneath (+1)  
The Russian-localized version of DROD:TCB is being released (and, boy, are my arms tired). You can see their typically cool cover art here:

That is very awesome. But why is Beethro hacking at some tentacles? The only thing in the Eighth that has tentacles (that I know of) is the pit thing, and Beethro never fights him.

I'd say it's briar.

This is tied back to an internet meme the briars like to joke about:

"Ah, but in soviet russia, the delver cuts you."

Is there any way to know who's doing the awesome cover art? It's the same guy who did the KDD art for Akella as well. I'd love to see more of his art.

I don't know the name of the artist, but I'm guessing they'd tell us if we ask.

These covers do a terrible job of capturing DROD's feel, but they are awesome.

It seems detrimental to have that kind of art, as parents are more likely to forbid children to buy the game than they would if they saw a little yellow guy moving on a tile. (Note that I'm in no way implying that the art is not awesome. It's PR [Parent Relations] that bugs me).

It is awful. There is no Beethro. Why we(i mean russian people) always make covers which has no true information on it? Beethro can't cut briars, roaches are not so awful.

He's probably referring to a previous game cover. I distinctly remember one with massive angry roaches on it.

Which begs an obvious question that I won't ask and instead just wait for an answer as if I did.

The cover art is awesome but I hate it. I hate it because that's supposed to be Beethro and this is supposed to be DROD.

By the way, I think I have you guys all topped!This is the French cover art for Inner Worlds.

Hotlink fail fixed... :)

@Trickster: you could see that image because your browser still had it in it's cache, but for everyone else it wouldn't load because the site you took your image from doesn't like random people from Teh Internet re-using their images... (try clearing your cache or force-reloading this page to see what I mean)

You're probably right about it being Mib (Mb), I was just laughing at it being Mega Memory. It's probably what Mega Man's brain is made of.

Actually, Mb is 1000 kb (which is 1000 bytes). This usage has become more common recently, because advertisers were wrong about what a megabyte was. Now, MiB and KiB are 1024 of the next smaller size, which is what Mb and kb originally were, and what they should be.
