As you’ve come to expect from Bitmap Books, this won’t be a straight printing of the digital book. We’ve commissioned fantasy artist Jan Pospíšil to create the cover and have devised two separate editions of the book, including a very limited collector’s edition that includes a bespoke slipcase and desirable collectables, such as an A2 poster and a dungeon map pad.
More information.

The biggest question: is Neo Scavenger covered inside (2014)? :evilgrin:

looked onto Jan Pospíšil and mostly finding pictures of guys named Jan or Pospíšil (or both), but I did find a few

Not sure where its entirely relevant to have unrelated images to the games. The Activision philosophy from the 2600 days was to shows screenshots of the actual games because they felt the illustrations on the covers from their old masters at Atari were deceptive. That's just my thoughts.

But good on, ya, Filipe. Congrats on getting published.

Excellent work Felipe. I actually took advantage of my academic resources and got the digital version printed and bound but will definitely purchase to help support the project. It truly is a fascinating read and would recommend to any rpg enthusiast.
