The must have biography of the infamous Ocean Software - a groundbreaking publisher, developer and innovator.
349 backers pledged £16,302 to help bring this project to life.

They are on their way...

Posted by Chris Wilkins (Creator)

Hi there,

The book has now been sent to everyone who has given me their address via the questionnaire and who I have chased over the last week or so - this includes ALL UK and INTERNATIONAL addresses I have been given.

I am amazed at how far across the world some of these books will be travelling over the next week or 2 - it seems like Ocean was truly international in it's appeal to gamers.

I have 5 signed books left if anyone is interested in pledging for - PM if your interested.

Once the books start arriving at their destination, let me know what you think of it on the Facebook page for the book and maybe post a pic of yourself with the book :) :

I will be printing another batch of the books in the New Year.  I will now move onto sorting out the Posters and the CD and zip stick.

Thanks so much for your support - I look forwards to hearing what you think of the book :)

Merry XMAS and a Happy New Year!


P.S. If you believe you have not given me your address then get in touch.
