Curated by Simon Carless
Continuing its popular "pay what you want" ebook bundles, StoryBundle is proud to present the Video Game Bundle V - the latest in the super popular series. The specially curated set of ten full-length game culture & history books/magazines and follows up four previous bestselling video game-centric ebook bundles.
It once again features over $50 worth of books & magazines for a fraction of that price - including multiple books never available in ebook format before, and one world exclusive debut!
The basic purchase tier ($3 or above) for Video Game Bundle V, curated by game industry veteran Simon Carless, includes Darius Kazemi's meticulously researched full-length Boss Fight Books take on Sir-Tech's seminal TRPG Jagged Alliance 2, as well as the first three issues from under-appreciated gem of a video game zine Arcade Review, featuring smart writing on a host of unconventional games.
Also available at this tier is a world exclusive for this StoryBundle. The full-length digital version of the recently Kickstarter-ed Kb's Game Toilet book is a delight, if you love witty cartoon goofs on wacky game concepts. Alongside that is Dylan Holmes' A Mind Forever Voyaging, a super well-written romp through classic moments in video game narrative history.
The higher-tier rewards—available at the higher payment tier of $12 or your local equivalent—include Kurt Kalata & friends' wondrous trawl through some of the all-time classic Sega titles, from Altered Beast to OutRun, and Super I Am 8-Bit - a full-length coffee table book compiles rad re-interpretations of Mario, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and a host of other notables.
In addition, you'll get Clipping Through, an intense first-person tome looking at a week at Game Developers Conference from Leigh Alexander's unique perspective, as well as Boss Fight Books: Super Mario Bros. 2, in which the 'odd man out' in the early Mario games gets a well crafted book-length personal analysis from Jon Irwin.– Simon Carless
