The Snowed In Game Bundle - Curated by David L. Craddock

For some of us, winter means snow storms that leave our vehicles buried beneath mounds of snow and ice, or months of rain. For all of us—for you—winter means the arrival of the Snowed In Game Bundle, 9 books to read from under the comfort of your coziest blanket and with a mug of hot cocoa in hand.

Boss Fight Books author Mike Drucker claws through the mists surrounding the development and cult status of Silent Hill 2. Mike James recounts the story of the ill-fated Coleco Chameleon console and its troubled creator. Prolific games writer John Harris plumbs the depths of Atari Games' catalog in the FIRST of a three-part series, and gaming historian David L. Craddock offers the EXCLUSIVE digital special edition of Monsters in the Dark: The Making of X-COM: UFO Defense, which includes bonus interviews following the author's narrative of legendary game designer Julian Gollop's early career.

All that, plus interviews with indie and triple-A developers, plus a deep dive into the history of Atari's canceled coin-op games, a collection of lost chapters and essays by Boss Fight Books authors including Alyse Knorr and Chris Kohler, an exploration of the Persona and Megami Tensei franchises, and more.
