8-Bit on a Budget - A book of the best budget games of the 80's needs funding

We've had countless books and magazines showing a resurgence of retro gaming and the love of all that we grew up on. But it now looks as if another book is to take center stage, as this one isn't just created by Kieren Hawken but other contributors will be involved such as our good friend Nostalgia Nerd who does some rather fine retro gaming videos. Titled as '8-Bit on a Budget ' this book that is aiming for funding, will be a fun and fascinating look back at the best 8-bit budget games of the eighties across multiple systems.

As noted by the crowd funding campaign for this 200 page 193 x 183mm full colour hard back, it will show us the very best budget originals released for the six most popular 8-bit home computers of the 1980s: the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC, MSX, BBC Micro and Atari 8-bit. Furthermore as well as including guest reviews and interviews such as Ashens, Nostalgia Nerd, David Jones and Rich Stevenson, the book will also have its own dedicated page for each machine with exclusive titles and full length reviews telling us why each game was so awesome.

As for the games listed in the book as of this moment they include Dizzy, Flash Gordon, Joe Blade, Agent X, Thrust, Advanced Pinball Simulator, Yogi Bear and Friends, The Wild Bunch, Danger Mouse, Super Robin Hood and many more. And that's pretty much all we know of the book so far, so if you're interested in this rather cool crowd funding campaign, it might be worth your time pledging it to a success.
