GameBook Color: The Unofficial CGB Companion has just opened up their crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for early support.
And as the name suggests, the GameBook Color aims to celebrate everything Game Boy Color.
Obviously we know a thing or two about the Game Boy Color and producing a book that celebrates retro handheld consoles (A Handheld History).
So to see a new book honoring one of our favorite consoles of all time is something we want to acknowledge and share. So let’s take a look together!
GameBook Color: The Unofficial CGB Companion
GameBook Color: The Unofficial CGB Companion is a follow-up to 2023’s GameBook: The Unofficial DMG Companion from Paul Murphy and Ninty Media.
This is the same team behind the successful Ninsight campaign that launched earlier this year.
The book will focus on the period between 1998 and 2001, when the Game Boy Color reigned as the king of handheld video game consoles.
The GameBook Color will contain perspectives from a variety of writers and original artwork paying homage to the GBC and some of the best Game Boy Color games.
The book itself will be a hardcover 200+ page edition at 21cm x 21cm (8.25in x 8.25in) printed on high-quality, uncoated paper stock.
The crowdfunding campaign for GameBook Color: The Unofficial CGB Companion has just launched on Kickstarter, and they are already nearing the finish line!
If you’d like to be an early backer of this project, there is a range of support options. Each with their own set of bonus content per tier. So you’ll definitely want to check out the campaign page for the full breakdown.
We know how difficult it can be to create a book. But we also know how rewarding it is to take on the challenge for the sake of celebrating something we love.
The Game Boy Color is definitely something that holds a special place in our hearts, and obviously the team at Ninty Media are on that same wavelength.
So we are happy to support their effort and we encourage our readers to do the same!
