This is pretty fun. I have a lot of ideas but it's tough to make them come to fruition. First attempt; wasn't sure what color to make the Nintendo, so i went with pink for no reason. It was just in the egg so:

edit. Actually blue is pretty hot too... it's the little things..

Am I the only one who find this completely phallic?

I'm looking at this, and I know that I like it, but my first thought is that it didn't appear to capture any of the game's design elements or gameplay features.

Then I realized that the arrangement of rectangles recreates the cityplan of buildings and streets. Delightful.

Not only that: it's also a painting by Piet Mondrian using the same primary colors as the game.
I retraced the picture, and used colors picked from a few screenshots of the game.

The Noby Noby Boy cover looks a bit like an Eric Carle illustration--which is wonderfully, whimsically appropriate...

Thanks mik! I'm really glad someone picked that up as it was intended as a subtle reference
 
Yeah I love the Bioshock one as the waves also look like clouds, depending on how you look at it, which totally juxtaposes the whole under water city aspect
