Twisted Metal: Jaffe appeals to players for help with the box art

David Jaffe, designer of 1995's Twisted Metal and director of its 2012 PS3 relaunch (and overseeing God of War in between), has unveiled the artwork for the game's box-front – but he's not so sure what to put on the rest of the cover. Series mascot Sweet Tooth's big flaming scary-clown-head and some smashed-up cars are a no-brainer, but how to fill the remaining 50%? Maybe you'd like to help.

It's a given that Twisted Metal will be returning to redefine destruction and mayhem, but should it do so against the backdrop of a flaming cityscape? Some tasteful rubble, or a sexy Dollface pose? Or some combination of the above? Jaffe's currently displaying all the options on his blog, alongside a poll to help decide the best candidate. You won't win anything if you choose wisely... aside, we suppose, from enticing more players, with whom you can then match-up when the title's released in February of next year.

    Not that commenting here will affect anything on a completely different site, but I'll go along... Does seem like a lot of people like C, and to me it is the worst of them. My problem is that it's way too busy & cluttered. Well, most of them are, but that's the biggest offender. So,I would go more simply, and use D. E is a close second, but for a reason I can't explain, it just doesn't work for me. Too boxy with the areas segregated from each other more than I'd like to see.

    I like the sexy doll face but it looks like most people preferred option C. :/

    Honestly, I think the cover should have a color that's a bit darker than pure white. White represents "Purity, peace, freedom..", things that Twisted Metal is definitely not about.

    I miss the mushroom cloud in the shape of Sweet Tooth's head.
