Providing illustrated snapshots of unreleased games dating from 1975 to 2015, The Games That Weren’t is Bitmap Books’ biggest and most ambitious book to date.
It includes a wide range of titles from the Atari 2600 right up to the Sony PlayStation 4, by way of arcade, home computer, console, handheld and mobile platforms. Years in the making, it’s packed to bursting point with exclusive content, in-depth interviews and much more besides.
Many of these lost classics are expanded upon in detail, as we share the untold stories and recollections of those involved with their design and development, as well as shedding some light on intriguing mysteries along the way.
Assets and screenshots - some of which have never been seen before - help illustrate the narratives, and in the case of games for which no images exist, there are specially created artist’s impressions that give a tantalising visual interpretation of what could have been.
