It sounds like the same source I found, then. An advertisement in a game mag. I'm pretty sure this wasn't in any of the EGM previews or reviews. I've seen most of those and they didn't include it. The ad was run in an issue of EGM though, so that was likely it.

But yeah, too bad. I would love to locate a fully visible version of this unusual find.

I just found something new related to this alternate box art. While researching more magazines for additions to Publications pages tonight, I came across the alternate art in a different advertisement in EGM2 #5 from November 1994. Unfortunately, it's not any more clear that what I've already posted. Even though it is brighter, it's just as small. :(

What is interesting though is that this advertisement is for a different game retailer and several months older than the ones I've seen previously. Those were for a company called Chips & Bits; this one is "Masco's World of Games." That confirms that the art was not created for the ads I've seen before. Chips & Bits actually has an ad in this issue that uses the standard US box art, too.

I strained my eyes a bit (a lot, actually x_x), but after looking at the girl in the front, it looks more like Alis rather than Alys to me. The hair reminds me of Alis and if I am not mistaken, isn't she wearing a headband like her, too? :? Shame the image isn't any clearer so I can tell for sure. :(

Anyways, this is a really cool find, Thoul! :) Makes me wonder what the developers had in mind when this was drawn up.

Why did they not have Chaz. They made a mistake.

Perhaps they mistook Chaz for a girl.

Hm, interesting idea. I guess that could happen pretty easily if the artist didn't have a very good reference for the characters.

No, as we can see, This is really Alys and not Chaz... Its another cover art. This is My opinion ^^
