On the other hand, lots of really awesome games have really crappy box art, so if that's the final art, it will be in excellent company on the shelf!
That's true. It's not like the box or a screen you see for a couple of seconds before playing will affect an otherwise awesome game in any significant way. But still, consistency is something I'm obsessed with, so I figured I'd point it out. Sam doesn't have eyelashes, irises, nostrils, ear lobes, ear canals... so why the hell does he have tendons, finger joints and fingernails? It's like the artist tried too hard because he wasn't comfortable drawing hands, when IMO even Powerpuff Girls-like stumps would've fit the style better.

Just to be clear, I do not mean to bring any negativity to the topic, this is intended as a bit of constructive criticism. I'm constantly blown away by the quality of the game itself whenever a new video is shared!
