Please, make a two pieces box!

It will be a lot easier to open!

Don't worry... It will be a two pieces box as stated by admin Spaff :

no matter the orientation of the art work, the box will be a 2 part thing like all the old boxes were. :)

I just hope it will keep the DOTT size too.

Crazy thought (apologies if someone has already mentioned this as an idea since I only read the first and last page of responses) but why not both? I mean, one side has the vertical orientation and the other has the horizontal. It would make everyone happy. At least, I imagine, mostly happy, I'm sure there would be a few who would want screenshots and a description on the 'back' like games used to have but there's really no point for it since it's not going to get put on shelves for sale. Thoughts?

Word!

It's ~ 400/400 now.

What about having two box designs?

It makes all sense ;-)

And YOU!

Yes, YOU!

When you haven't voted yet and when you do care or don't care at all:

VOTE HORIZONTAL!!

I'd like a box that uses extra dimensions, moving it into some hyper-reality.

Definitely think the sideways boxes have a tabletop vibe, probably more suitable to an RPG like Wasteland 2.

Surprised that 'traditional big-boxes' seem to still be evolving for people.. :P

I do appreciate that people would like a bigger version of that key art, and after the last doc it's kind of hard to suggest anyone at DF have to make different art, or do anything -- But then maybe the horizontal box would hurt POSTER sales? Isn't that what horizontal people really want anyway, a sideways poster?? :D

Seems like a proper $100-backer Kickstarter survey without the campaigning and other vagaries of the forums would be the fairest way to go? ... or a coin toss on a livestream :D

Wooooo!11 :D

Crazy how close this is.

Would it not be possible to have a cardboard sleeve with the 'losing' art that fits over the whole box? Would seem like a good compromise.

My hesitation with suggesting a slipcover is what do you do with the slipcover when you want to show off the underlying artwork? Where do you put it? And then it gets lost.

Perhaps a better idea is a reversible lid; a double-sided pane of card/paper/etcboard with two (Possibly four) magnetic flaps, so you can just pull it off and flip it around.

After a lot of deliberation (I don't have the old boxes on the shelf), I voted horizontal. It's now 410 / 410. That is ridiculous! If this keeps up it may have to go to a coin toss in the livestream...

Ultimately I'll be happy with either style.

Just voted horizontal, and wow that's a close vote.

The Shay/Vella art will fit much better horizontally, so it was an easy vote for me.

How is this so close? Vertical is obviously the correct choice.

Really? I voted too fast and wanna change my vote to horizontal now.

The art would look best on a horizontal box, so that is how I voted.

Come on, horizontal!!!

Are we seriously at a draw again?!!?

We're never getting our collector's edition boxes or... we're getting two of them. ;)

I'd say at this point just let the choice be an inside studio one but I bet they're even at a draw and that's why they really came to us!

I voted having no idea the gravity of my vote at this time, until I saw

Vertical: 415

Horizontal: 414

Please let others vote, I can't live with that burden on my shoulders.

Clearly with a vote this close the only possibly solution is to come up with a diagonally oriented box.

I voted back in those just over 100 votes a piece days, but at over 400 each and going strong, it is clear to me that we truly are a divided nation.

Out of interest, when do they call it on the vote?

Word!

And for all who are still not sure what to vote or who are seriously planning to click 'vertical' by accident..

..I invited a little pal over. Please come closer and look deep into the eyes of Hypnotoad:
