Reviews and Previews

  • Arcade Heroes (review): “an engaging narrative style that combines history, interviews and dialogue… like you are sitting there with the developer as they faced the challenges back in the 80’s or 90’s.”
  • RePlay magazine (preview)
  • Chris Sanyk, developer/critic (review): “This is primary resource material and very nice to have in its entirety.”
