Box Art Has Only One Week Left To Reveal The Gold Inside The Legend Of Zelda

The Legend Of ZELDA Shadow Box

The Legend Of Zelda was inspired by Shigeru Miyamoto’s childhood explorations. As a young boy he discovered a cave, buried deep in the forests of Sonobe, Japan. With only a lantern to guide him, he found buried gold that later ended up under the Christmas trees’ of millions of boys and girls. Protected by an ancient shield, the greatest video game of all time shimmers through the box like buried treasure. Millions have analyzed the golden game, but what about the box that protects it? Who created the shield exposing the gold of Zelda? Why?

Rob McCallum has lit his lantern to create a 90 minute documentary, Box Art. Do you want to enter the caverns with him to discover the mysteries these boxes hold?  Rob’s currently working with legends like Timothy Girvin (design lead of Zelda logo), Tom duBois (illustrator of Contra 3 and Castlevania Bloodlines), Greg Wray (illustrator of Sonic The Hedgehog), and many more.

There’s only a week left to hit his funding goal of $30,000, and he’s only $6,000 away. Visit www.BoxArtDoc.com and back his project today to unlock the treasures of gaming’s greatest box art legends!
