Thought quite few people here might be interested in a great project such as this.
The ultimate retrospective of the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis. A documentary art book by Read-Only Memory.
*Our 16-bit SEGA heroes video is experiencing some technical difficulties but will be back soon! *
SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works [ セガ メガド ライブ／ジェネシス：作品集成 ] will be the definitive volume on the landmark console. The book is officially licensed by SEGA and celebrates the 25th anniversary of the console’s release. It will be an unparalleled treasury of production artwork, interviews, development sketches and hardware manufacturing plans.
It will also include over 20 exclusive interviews with original SEGA team members – many of whom have never been interviewed before – a foreword by industry legend Dave Perry and an insightful 10,000-word piece by Keith Stuart (Games Editor for the Guardian and regular contributor to Edge) on the machine that changed the landscape of gaming forever.
The book will showcase a wealth of SEGA’s 16-bit titles, from blockbuster games such as Bare Knuckle/Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Gunstar Heroes, The Super Shinobi/Revenge of Shinobi and Golden Axe through to cult gems such as Rent-a-Hero, Vectorman and DecapAttack.
We are tremendously excited about making this book a reality. With your support, we hope to publish a beautiful and substantial volume on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis. If funded, this will be the second title from Read-Only Memory, a new company that aims to publish high-end books on gaming history.FULL INFO PAGE
