It’s not quite ready for acquisition and consumption just yet — lots of copy editing remains to be performed — but GameSpite Quarterly 5 now has a full-fledged page online for viewing, solicitation, and salivation. I spent a fair chunk of my weekend taking photographs and even drawing the remainder of images for the book; basically, if I wasn’t working on an Ys VII review or sweating off the side effects of a tetanus booster, I was juggling images.
You know how I’m pretty averse to saying anything positive about myself and the work I do in a public venue? Well, I am saying right now that this book is really kind of awesome, and while it’s not going to be perfect, I’m confident that we’ll all be incredibly proud of the final results. I’m also confident that after this I’m going to lay down some kind of policy on the maximum page count for these magazines. 200 seems like a nice number. 440 is a bit much to deal with, it turns out.
Anyway, you can get a glimpse of the book’s structure and a snapshot of the cover on the relevant page. Aw, heck, I’ll just embed the cover in this here blog post. I played with a few concepts for this cover, but ultimately decided to go with something simple and iconic. Hopefully it meets with your approval! And if not, well, sucks for you.
