I'm at it again: Make your own Sonic 4 Episode 2 Genesis box, manual and cartridge!

Back in 2010, in anticipation of Sonic 4 Episode 1, I created an shared a Genesis box craft project. The design was well received, with Sonic Retro reporting on it and SEGA's own Ruby Eclipse aka Aaron Webber commenting on it over at the SEGA forums (at least, I remember seeing he did, I can't find the link but whateva).

If you want to make the case, here’s what you’ll need:
  • The files, available to download here 
  • A plastic Genesis or Mega Drive case and game cartridge, I used a like-new copy of NBA Jam 
  • One 8.5″x11″ sheet of printer paper (glossy preferred) 
  • One 11″x17″ sheet of printer paper, or whatever can fit a 7″x11″ image 
  • Tape, plain or double sided
Print the cartridge “stickers” and instruction manual on the 8.5″x11″ piece of paper, cut on the edge. Fold the manual in half and place a piece of tape inside to keep it shut. Use double sided tape or loops of regular tape to stick the sticker to the cartridge. Print the cover on the larger piece of paper, trim and place in the Genesis box, place the cartridge and manual inside the box.

If you'd like to see more images, I posted up a gallery over at SEGAbits. Check them out and enjoy!

    1. I looked, did not see any design like this one. If there is one, they stole mine.

  5. Hey I just saw these and was wondering if you could re-upload the episode 1 and 2 files since they seem to be down. I did look at the pictures you've poseted and must say you've done an excellent job. I'd love to make a couple boxes and add these to my collection. Thanks. :)
