HG101: The Guide to Beat-Em-Ups Vol. 1 by Kurt Kalata
"Loved Volume One with a ton of great information, good screen shots and lots of details that I haven't read anywhere else so far; hopefully Volume Two gets released soon...In short: This is a great book for retro gamers with a faible for 'belt scrolling fighting games' such as Final Fight and Streets of Rage."– Amazon.com review
Kool Stuff: Bonus Interviews From Long Live Mortal Kombat by David L. Craddock
"Long Live Mortal Kombat is utterly comprehensive, delving into the behind-the-scenes details of A wonderful telling of the story of Mortal Kombat. Craddock puts you in the room with the creators and players who breathed life into the most iconic fighting game of them all."– Jamieson K. Price, actor (Naruto, Persona 5, Mortal Kombat 9, 10, & 11)
Boss Fight Books: Minesweeper by Kyle Orland
"Your next book should be Minesweeper by Kyle Orland. All of the Boss Fight Books' books are fantastic and this one is no different. [...] This is for gamers who remember Windows 3.1 just like I do and for gamers who think Minesweeper is a free-to-play game on the Microsoft Store (unless you run anything before Windows 8, it is no longer pre-loaded) that they will never touch."– Dear Gamers
Boss Fight Books: PaRappa the Rapper by Mike Sholars
"Scholar's book is yet another great addition to the series. His passion, his analysis, his investigations, his methodology, everything is well executed. By the end of the book I wanted to play Parappa the Rapper, not because I only knew it through Robot Chicken, but because Scholars made me believe."– Accordion Sprout
Boss Fight Books: GoldenEye 007 by Alyse Knorr
"Absolutely the best book I've read about a videogame — or a film — and I'm not just saying that because it's, you know, GoldenEye. It's warm, personable, and surprisingly filled with minor dramatic incidents. Considering that a videogame is essentially a long process where a number of people sit down at computers for a long time, that is impressive."– Martin Hollis, Director of GoldenEye 007
Video Games - Stage One: 1979 and Before by Andrea Contato
"Video Games tells the story of our medium in an interesting and comprehensive way."– Multiplayer.it
HG101: The Guide to Retro Horror by Kurt Kalata
"This is a very solid book content wise with pretty good layouts (as with all HCG101 releases I've ordered thus far) and it was nice to see a variety of older content including Amiga and IBM-PC entries, and even an arcade light gun title. Of particular interest to me were the sections on the Splatterhouse and Ghouls and Ghosts series, of which many articles were written by series' guru Rob Strangman. The sections cover not only the main game titles, but cameo appearances, bits of merchandise, and obscure information. The other articles were also great to read, especially ones on more obscure computer titles like the Amiga 500 only Waxworks, or the arcade only Zombie Raid."– Rei Ciel, Amazon.com review

With pay-what-you-want, we believe there's a price for everyone. Or better yet, buy one for them as a gift. Help support indie authors!
Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the "Learn More" link next the charities when you purchase.
