Apparently, in order to make a cover for a survival horror game, you need an image of a pale blonde woman either looking vacantly or down at her yourself or a panorama of a lot of hazy backgrounds. And to make a cover of an action horror game, you need a picture of a man (any dude will do...), someone violently covering someone's mouth (any mouth...), or a creepy hand (any hand, really).
