Little Video Game Books

*******************************************************************************

Got a very nice little article on one of the biggest sites in video-game news: KOTAKU

*******************************************************************************

I recently have been really into the artwork of the classic Little Golden Books. There's something very charming about their simplicity, and yet they are some of the books that I remember most from my early childhood.

As the sun sets on this current generation of video games, I've been thinking about some of the classic games that people will still (hopefully) point to years from now and hold them up as games that made a difference, and possibly, for some child out there, Portal or Skyrim will be a memory from their early childhood.

I love video games, and I love children's books. I was inspired to combine the two into the artwork you see below:


"Our hero, our hero, claims a warriors heart, but the body of a child."

Sorry, this print is no longer available



"The Cake may be a lie, but the friendship between a little girl and her robot friend is true love."

"Somewhere, beyond the sea, there lived a little girl and her big friend Mr. Bubbles."

You can order all 3 prints together! Click HERE


I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I enjoyed making them! If Ken Levine, Gabe Newell, and Todd Howard are interested in making these a reality... feel free to contact me :)

Love these, wish they were real, though they helped me play an April Fool's day joke on my blog readers!

Please, by all that is good and holy...

Make a short story in this art-style so they become real books.

This would be the perfect gift any nerd can give to their child!

You should definitely look into a way of turning these into full children's books. The art style is adorable and I would happily pay money for these to put into my little ones collection :)

Those games sold millions and millions of copies... I can't imagine you would need to sell too many to make a profit, even after licensing and publishing costs. Places like thinkgeek etc would sell these by the bucket load to nerdy moms and dads. Do it!

Just a couple of days ago I was reading another blog that also started to work theses kinds of contents, dedicating more to the art in videogames, it was really cool and it seems to be having some success, if you're interested I can give you the link so you can take it a look.

Best Regards and good work.

Xbox One Modded Controllers

This is perfect for those who love their old 360 controllers, or had a real expensive modded 360 controller and now don't have to worry about buying another, or want to use a PS4 Dual shock 4 controller or want that extra edge by playing with a keyboard and mouse. Naturally you have full access to all of the mod packs too so you can now play with a fully modded controller on your Xbox One Modded Controllers - including our latest addition to the mudpack range, CALL OF DUTY GHOSTS V1.0 - again supplied free of charge and will be out very soon (Until it is released you can use the Call of Duty Series v1.7 Game Pack to work with COD Ghosts on the Xbox One)
