‘Replay’, the book about the history of videogames
Summer is coming, good weather and, if there is luck, free time to read and continue to expand knowledge. The videogame industry is also years old, accumulates events and begins to conglomerate enough information to make a book like the one presented today : Replay: the history of videogames .
The title speaks for itself, but inside it is an extensive investigation with more than 140 exclusive interviews to some of the most illustrious characters in the history of our environment. Replay is responsible for making a story about how the talent of young people who once were just amateurs ended up drifting little by little into one of the cultural and artistic expressions with the highest turnover in the world.
To explain it, the book begins by treating the context of the Cold War period going through the eighties, the nineties and the current era. The perspective is global, addressing countries such as the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Germany, France, Spain and even Russia.
Tristan Donovan is the author of this material, a profile with experience in media such as The Guardian, Edge, Game Developer, Stuff, The Gadget Show or Games ™, among others. Today he resides in East Sussex, United Kingdom. With a great critique in internationally recognized media, we finally have the opportunity to make ourselves in Spain, in Spanish , with Replay: the history of videogames .
The book will go on sale on June 22 in bookstores and supermarkets; although from now you can make your reservation on the website of the publisher. There is also a limited edition of 300 copies with hard cover and selective gloss on its cover.
