Video game book publisher Geeks Line is working on the definitive history of the Super Nintendo console.
We don’t often cover Kickstarter campaigns here at Thumbsticks. There are usually too many uncertainties for us to wholeheartedly endorse a project, however much we’re excited by it.
That said, the folks at Geeks Line – who are currently raising funds for the Super Nintendo Anthology – have a consistent track record of meeting their crowd funding goals, delivering their pledges, and producing high quality products to boot.
Indeed we have just received our copy of the recently released Nintendo GameCube Anthology, which had its own campaign last year. We’ll have a review for you soon, but at first glance the weighty tome looks just as well made and informative as the publisher’s PlayStation and Nintendo 64 anthologies.
The Super Nintendo Anthology will come as a two-part release, with one volume covering the console’s software library – complete with box art illustrations for every game – and a second looking at the hardware, its development, worldwide release, and impact on the games industry.
Together, both volumes will run to more than 600 pages, all of which are fully illustrated in colour.
Head over to the book’s Kickstarter campaign to find out more.
