Perhaps the most exciting thing about this art, aside from the orange and teal, is that it scored this very blog a mention on the Telegraph. Hoo-ray!
Last Rebellion: Not rebelling against tedious colour themes though apparently.
Dr Who? Dr BLUE more like! Hah. I crack myself up. Loving the random burst of orange at the bottom there.
Def Jam Rapstar: “Sweet teal jacket bro!”
Shift 2: Unleashed has a wonderful box if you like orange, teal and cars! Interestingly the standard box paints that orange car red, so it seems you only get to enjoy this O&T splendour if you fork up!
Darkspore: Orange and Teal Edition!… Oh no wait, thats the regular version.
It seems NO genre is safe! This is another great example because it is so unnecessary! They could have at least given the singer and the keyboard player different colour clothes. Good effort.
Making the dude blue or teal we can let pass, but at that point choosing an abstract orange background just seems lazy and predictable (like every other entry we post. ZING!). But seriously, the unnecessary orange…ing begs respect from us. 8/10.
When we’re not hunting monsters we like to hunt down teal and orange. Fortunately we don’t have to look far because BAM! There it is.
Tron Evolution: This is almost as delicious as the Last AirBender game. The best ones really are the ones where they take the box art, cut it in half and just air brush the colours 50/50 across with no rhyme or reason. Quite spectacular. 9/10.
Orange and teal are two colours that look nice together. They're complimentary. The movie industry figured this out a while ago and now we're starting to see entire films colour "corrected" to be just orange and teal (see 'The Island' by Michael Bay for an example) but games are starting to follow this path.
This tumblr exists to document games that rely on the old teal and orange look for their key art and packaging. We may post the occasional screenshot if it is super blatant.
