The All New Book Update Show!


Please view the attached video for EXCITING UPDATE INFORMATION - information so exciting that it made me capitalise three whole words in a row!

In other news, it was lovely to meet so many of you on the book tour recently. It's great to see so many people interested in fascinatlingly awful retro games - just please bear the lessons of the book in mind if you ever make your own game...

And here's a further point of excitement: Long-time Terrible Old Games contributor Larry Bundy Jr is writing his very own book about weird gaming facts. Have a butchers here:

Thanks again folks. I shall next be in touch when I've signed all the collectible editions...

Awesome thanks for the update.
I wonder how long it'll be before someone mods the book and puts a playable game on the cover ;)

Hi Tony,

The 'collectable' level or any under this level on the project page includes a signed copy. If you pledged for the 'hardback' level you'll receive an unsigned copy. You can check what level you opted for over in your account:

Best wishes,

Could of bought this in Waterstones weeks ago, instead I’m waiting for this. Didn’t get it early, hardback isn’t anything special, paid more than the shops, obviously didn’t need supporting to get to print, what exactly did I support?
