Kickstarter of the Week: SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works

Sega Mega Drive Genesis Collection

Today’s Kickstarter of the Week isn’t a video game at all, but rather a piece of video game history. Read-Only Memory is producing a brand new documentary art book that is looking to be “the ultimate retrospective” on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis. The book is officially licenced by Sega itself and is being produced as a celebration of the console’s 50th anniversary.

The book will include everything that a SEGA fanboy could want, including never before seen concept art for several Genesis games like Toejam & Earl, Sonic: The Hedgehog, and Streets of Rage. It will also include schematics and manufacturing diagrams, so that you can see how the Genesis was planned and built from day 1 right up until its release. Finally, it will also include 20 exclusive interviews with original SEGA team members including Greg Johnson (ToeJam & Earl), Peter Morawiec (Comix Zone), Rich Karpp (Vectorman), Michael Latham (Eternal Champions) and Ed Annunziata (Ecco the Dolphin).

This incredible black book will be approximately 300 pages long and will contain over 35,000 words of SEGA history. Pledging £25 (approximately $40 U.S.) or more will get you a copy of the book in hardcover as well as getting your name in the book as a benefactor. The project has no stretch goals, but it has already been funded. The team originally asked for £30,000 and to this date they have raised £72,230 with 13 more days to go. Right now it’s just a mad dash to gather up all of the reward tiers while they are still available. For example there are only 29 special limited edition prints of the book left at the £250 level.

For more information on SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works, head on over to the official Kickstarter page. It would make a great coffee table book, especially if you still happen to have your old SEGA Genesis lying around.
