Book #12 Winner Announced

Hey Everyone,

The results are in and we're ready to call a winner: SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS.

Thanks to everyone who voted! And remember, this isn't your last chance to see a book about FF6, Deus Ex, or Super Metroid.

If you haven't played the game, it's a really fascinating choice. Unlike so many cutscene-heavy action games, SotC drops you and your horse into a quiet and scarcely populated countryside. It's all pretty peaceful and meditative... until it's time for you kill an enormous mythical beast. Even then, the game is less a button-mashing slaughterfest than a puzzle to discover each enemy's weak spot. I've never played anything quite like SotC. 

If you ARE a fan of this game, I hope you'll help get the word out to the fan community that there's going to be a SotC book... and that we're about to start looking for an author.

Remember, each Season 2 subscription will include a copy of our Shadow of the Colossus book, and you will also be able to request this book in one-book or two-book backer tiers as well.

We've got 27 hours left to raise $2,300 to hit the big $50,000 stretch goal. I bet we can do it!

Yours,

Gabe / Boss Fight

      Hi Scott, sorry I was looking for this message in my email. Sure! You could add $70 to the Spelunky tier and get both digital seasons + a print copy of SotC. I'll need you to remind me of the special case at the time of the survey.

      How can I add on to my currently selected Spelunky tier? At the minimum I would like a second print book (SOTC of course), but I would entertain full digital subscriptions for one or both seasons if that were also available.

      Oh goody gumdrops, will keep my entire season tier now :D

      If FF6 and Dues Ex are indeed in Season 3 then that's pretty much another instant backing too ;)
