What’s in a face?

Tags: Planescape: Torment

Guido Henkel (of Realms of Arkania fame, in case you still remember those games) describes in this blog post how he was involved with the box art of Planescape: Torment.


<span>I had a cover stunt before, back in the year 1999 or so when we were finalizing a computer game called &ldquo;Planescape: Torment&rdquo; that I was producing for Interplay at the time. An ad agency had a cover design laid out and we had booked a male model for the cover shoot. About a day before the shoot, news came in that the model had a scheduling conflict and would not make it. While we were sitting around the office and wondered what to do, someone looked at me and said, &ldquo;Maybe you should be the model.&rdquo; I thought it was joke at first but everyone in the room looked at me and went, &ldquo;Yeah, why don&rsquo;t you?&rdquo;</span>
