I featured this sometime ago on Collate whenever it was just being hatched as a Kickstarter campaign, but now that it has been published in all it's glory I thought it was worth another post. 'Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works' is a must for all you gamers and SEGA geeks out there. Darren Wall and Co. over at Read Only Memory have done such a great job at producing such a beautiful publication and a definitive retrospective of the console. The book is now available to purchase over at Read Only Memory.
'Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works features development and concept illustrations for Sega’s best-loved game franchises, original developer interviews and previously unseen hardware production plans. Much of the visual material – drawn from the Sega of Japan archives – has never been released before. Alongside the illustrated history is ‘Arcade Perfect’, a written history of the console and its legacy by Guardian Games Editor Keith Stuart, which features the voices of Sega executives and industry luminaries – including the company’s founder David Rosen, its president Hayao Nakayama, Sega of America CEO Tom Kalinske and many more. The book opens with a foreword by legendary developer David Perry, on the console that catalysed his career.'
