In December 2012 we were approached by two excited guys in their mid-thirties, they asked us to come up with an eBook cover for their new title “Eight Bits”.
“Eight Bits is a nostalgic look at the bright lights of the early home gaming experience. In their youth Gene and Raymond spent countless hours with pixelated heroes who defined their generation – Mega Man, Donkey Kong, Mario, Chucky Egg, Paperboy, Jet Set Willy to name just a few. Eight Bits is part homage, part retrospective and part personal account of the lives of two Generation X gamers.”
Gene and Raymond wanted a cover which didn’t try too hard and was clean and modern, it also had to work when reproduced as a very small thumbnail in the online eBook stores.
Eight Bits will be available on Kindle, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and all good eBook stores in 2013.
