Sega Master System: a visual compendium (Kickstarter Book)
Post Posted: Sat Jul 21, 2018 3:37 pm
Bitmap Books and Sam Dyer are working on a beautiful licensed Sega Master System book "Sega Master System: a visual compendium".

The project is currently being funded through Kickstarter, with only 10 days to go!. Additional pre-orders will allow the book to grow and add extra contents (it is currently aimed to be about 364 pages, maybe more add additional stretch goals are reached!). The final product should be available in February 2019 but remember it is will be more difficult to order it past the end of the crowdfunding round.

If you are interested, see the Kickstarter page for lots more details and pictures!

Small trivia: I wrote some short reviews for 3 games so I'll be the book :) it was really fun writing them. Looking forward to read the others.

I sent a msg to Sam over Twitter a few months ago and asked if he'd contacted anyone from SMS Power
He said he was in contact with you so that is awesome! :)

So excited about this book. I've backed it too and also ordered in his previous NES, SNES and Point & Click adventure books which just arrived and have blown me away!

Sadly due to licensing issues his MS book is not going to be covering any of the Wonderboy Games though. :(

The Wonder Boy situation is really frustrating for every one.. Many of us pushed to help Sam with the licensing and even people at Sega Europe tried hard but for various reasons I cannot detail it isn't currently possible.

What does this mean precisely? Will there be no screenshot of any Wonder Boy game or will these games not even be mentioned?
