Fuck Yeah, Cover Reveal!

Thursday, 27 June 2019

Picture first! Words later!

Feast your eyeballs, lids and lashes on this, the actual cover of Fuck Yeah, Video Games! What you're looking at isn't just the greatest book cover in the world, it's also sleepless nights, hand cramp and about 35 emails wondering if "video games" has a space in it or not...

Anyway, some updates! As of right now the book is so very close to being done. All the words are in, the glorious art is too and the last bits we're working on are the really tiny little details that can really piss off a designer, especially if you email them about it at 3am. I've been told that if I ask to shift something left 3/4 of a pixel again, some of the staff from Unbound are going to attempt to burn my face down.

AN IMPORTANT BIT

If you've backed at a higher/custom tier, be sure to check that the email you've used on here works! Some folks who backed things that will be in the book haven't been contactable and we can't patch your faces into the book after it's printed! Apparently that technology doesn't exist yet.

If you're now panicking because you've not been contacted about rewards outside of the book, fear not, we'll be starting on other reward tiers like custom art etc after the book goes to print. Hooray! 

Right, that's all from me for now. I'm off to email a desiger. The text in the Portal section needs to be 1/8th of a font size bigger.

Ciao.

- Daniel

Brilliant! Love the cover and can’t wait! It will fit snuggly between Terrible Old Games with cartoon Ashens looking at the sock-faced moose for all eternity.

Poor designers :/ At this rate, I wonder if Dan’s perfectionism might delay the signed copies another year? Have to get the positioning perfect ;)

Still annoyed I just missed the deadline to get my name in the book, I do stil need to add the Terrible Old Games subtitle, so I’ll just Sharpie then in for authenticity ;)

Rebecca! It looks so freaking good! But I know you must know that. I’m so excited for you guys. And for me. Let’s be honest, I’m really excited that the ship date is less than 6 months out. Like, REALLY, excited. You have been pouring your heart and soul into this thing. I’m so ready to dive in!
