Sega Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works

A beautifully-designed book that takes us back to when 16-bit graphics and spiky haired hedgehogs stole our attention away from that iconic, mushroom-crazed Italian plumber:

"SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works will be the definitive volume on the landmark console. The book is produced in collaboration with SEGA and celebrates the 25th anniversary of the console's release. It is an unparalleled treasury of development sketches, design documents, hardware concepts and game artwork, that covers blockbuster titles such as Bare Knuckle/Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star II and ToeJam & Earl as well as cult gems including Vectorman, Landstalker and Comix Zone.

The book opens with a stirring, personal foreword by industry legend David Perry, followed by a spirited history of the console and its legacy by Keith Stuart (Guardian Games Editor), which includes first-hand accounts from key figures inside and outside of Sega. Forming a coda to the book is a comprehensive oral history comprised of 28 exclusive interviews with original Sega team members - many of whom have never been interviewed before.
SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works offers unrivalled insight into the console that changed the landscape of gaming forever."
