Free sample

After rashly tweeting he would dream up an imaginary computer game for every ‘like’ received, Nate Crowley found himself on an epic quest to conjure up hundreds of entirely fictional titles. From 1980s hits like BeastEnders to modern classics like 90s Goth Soccer and BinCrab Destiny, this beautiful retrospective takes the reader on a lavish tour of the most memorable and groundbreaking games never made.
Brought to hilarious life by a team of genuine videogame industry concept artists and written by a professional over-imaginer, this book doesn’t just throw out silly ideas – it expands on them in relentless, excruciating detail.
