This is Greyfox Books second Kickstarter campaign!
One bonus of running RVG over the years was meeting lots of new people and becoming friends with many of them, one person was Darren Doyle the founder and creator of Greyfox Books, what I can tell you that over on our forum we have known about this book for maybe 5 years but Darren has told us its really been a labour of love for about 8 years.
It’s clear to see that this new book will pay a huge tribute to the Arcade scene and a lot of games we all loved during our childhood and even now into adulthood.
As we mentioned earlier this is Darren’s 2nd book you can read our independent review of “Atari: a Visual History” which successfully funded in 2019.
Clearly, the aim of this book is to produce a visually rich experience based on multiple genres of classic arcade titles. Spread over 9 chapters, including:
- Side-scrolling Beatem’up games
- Arcade Driving games
- Arcade Shootem’ups
- Arcade Action games
- Miscellaneous arcade games
- Obscure arcade games
- Arcade Horror inspired games
- 1 vs. 1 Fighting games
- An arcade Hall of Fame
With over 100 classic arcade games covered, each one is broken up with special features, with a personal perspective of growing up with these games as a kid into adulthood and won’t diverse opinions you see in other publications. Darren has bagged some exclusive interviews and much more ensuring a premium publication with a word count of 60,000 – 70,000 words.
