The Art of Point + Click Adventure Games - Bitmap Books fabulous retro book of adventuring

Through all these years I've always been a fan of the point and click adventure genre, from games such as Beneath of Steel Sky on the Amiga, the famous game Legend of Kyriandia, to the rather charming fantasy games of Discworld or even Simon the Sorcerer. Each one full of characters to talk to, lovely pixelated graphics, an engrossing story and the ever present need to find that next item that may or may not blend in with each together just to progress past the next screen! It is one of my famous genres and to boost it to the next level Bitmap Books have announced The Art of Point + Click Adventure Games is now open for pre-orders; a visual celebration of Adventure Games

Yes indeed from the same creator(s) behind the already popular books such as Commodore 64 : A visual Commpendium, Commodore Amiga: a visual Commpendium and the even NES/Famicom: a visual compendium. We now have this new book to look forward to which is due in 2018 that looks to feature the incredible artwork from games that we have held close to our gaming hearts through all these years.

But if that wasn't enough to pull you in, the book also includes not only interviewees such as Tim Schafer, Robyn Miller, Ron Gilbert, David Fox, Aric Wilmunder, Richard Hare, Hal Barwood, Gary Winnick, Noah Falstein, Mark Ferrari and Dave Gibbons. But also covering incredible games from our youth such as King’s Quest, Myst, Toonstruck, Discworld, Blade Runner, Gabriel Knight, The Flight of the Amazon Queen, Simon the Sorcerer and of course other classics, such as The Secret of Monkey Island, The Dig, Maniac Mansion and even Full Throttle!

So head on over to the main website now as this is going to be a book of adventure amazement!
