The Art of Point-and-Click Adventure Games: Collector's Edition update

The Art of Point-and-Click Adventure Games: Collector's Edition update

We're pleased to be able to share with you the full artwork for the collector's edition box by Paul Conway. This artwork will wrap around the entire outer box, printed in full colour and then gloss laminated. 

Also arriving this week at Bitmap Books HQ has been a blank dummy of the collector's edition box and book. This is essentially a hand-made replica of the finished product, just minus the print. It's created so we can sign-off the physical box structure and book look and feel before full production starts. Below are some photos of the dummy which also include a dummy of the code wheel.

Pre-orders are due to end in July but we predict that the collector's edition will sell out before then. So if you're holding out, we advise ordering soon if you want to secure your copy.

Progress update: The Art of Point-and-Click Adventure Games

Progress update: The Art of Point-and-Click Adventure Games

Thanks to everyone that has pre-ordered The Art of Point-and-Click Adventure Games so far. We thought we would do a little update to let you all know where the project is at, and reassure everyone what we're on schedule for the August release date.

We’re now in the last few stages of checks before the book goes into production. Everything has been proofread, and the files are now being prepared for print – capturing those last minute little errors and making it all as perfect as possible. The overall word count is 112,682, the final interview count is 41 and there are literally hundred of images. This has been by far the biggest book that Bitmap Books have ever undertaken, and the level of detail is really something else. Those that have had a sneak preview, consistently comment on how great the interviews are and the insights they give are fantastic. 

The plan is that the book will go to print in May once this final checks are made. From start to finish, the print and production process takes up to three months and we will do our best to share progress updates throughout this period such as sharing photos of proofs and various other samples.

Also, just to avoid any confusion, if you also ordered other books within your pre-order, they will be sent all together in one shipment. The advantage of this for you, is that you'll save money of shipping as in the majority of cases, adding more books incurs little or no extra postage charges.

SEGA® Master System: a visual compendium

SEGA® Master System: a visual compendium

We’re delighted to finally announce the 6th volume in our series of visual compendiums, which will be focused on the SEGA Master System. The exciting news is that this will be the first official visual compendium, as we are working with SEGA on the book. We will therefore have access to some great assets and will be able to include some fascinating interviews that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.

Over the years, we've produced books covering great companies such as SNK, Commodore and Nintendo and SEGA has always been the missing part of the puzzle - but not anymore. 

We’ve got some really exciting things planned for the Kickstarter campaign which will launch very soon. Sign up here to be notified as soon as the Kickstarter campaign is live.
