At Cliqist, I may just happen to be the biggest Boss Fight Books supporter among us. Although the campaign somewhat passed me by, the books created thanks to it did not. Over the past year I’ve reviewed three of their Season One titles: ZZT, Galaga, and Super Mario Bros. 2. As such, the reveal of Boss Fight Books: Season 2 is a big deal. Apparently other fans felt the same way as there’s nearly a month left on their campaign and funding is already secured.
What can existing fans and new readers expect to get from Boss Fight Books’ next six titles? Here’s a list of confirmed titles:
- Baldur’s Gate II by Matt Bell
- Bible Adventures by Gabe Durham
- Metal Gear Solid by Ashly Burch and Anthony Burch
- Spelunky by Derek Yu
- World of Warcraft by Daniel Lisi
- Fan-selected book by undisclosed author
If you’ve not read any Boss Fight Books-published titles yet, each dives into one specific video game. Along the way authors often play with expected narratives by offering up moments from their own history. It might seem a bit odd but in practice works as a great way to hook readers. You not only get a historical, informational piece but also completely unique from any other game-focused nonfiction book out there. Each book comes in a paperback or eBook (ePUB, MOBI, PDF) format. They also typically run 130 to 200 pages. Those who want digital copies of every book from Season 2 can pledge $30 or more. Boss Fight Books: Season 2 is a successful campaign and they have already proven they can create and ship books in a timely fashion.
