Philip Summers of Hand-Drawn Guides is known for his beautifully crafted Video Game guides that are artistically and painstakingly drawn by hand. He has run a number of pre-orders on his website for folks to purchase his guides at limited quantities. They have completely sold out numerous times due to the popularity of his guides for iconic retro games like The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Contra / Ninja Gaiden.
Philip is back with his most ambitious project yet that will see all three of his guides printed to order, and complete with hardback covers. The project is now link on Kickstarter and DM Cumbo of Dreamprism Press (Yooka-Laylee and the Kracklestone) is also helping assist with the project.
The Project will run for another 28 days (since writing this article) and there are multiple tiers to choose from. Each book is available singularly for $25 USD plus postage or can be bought in a bundle for $65 USD. There were some other tiers but they have all been claimed now but there are thoughts of some stretch goals put into place that will surely be appealing to those that back the project.
If you would like to check out the project and possibly back it yourself, you can do so here. I have personally backed it myself and went for the three-guide bundle. Having purchased one of Philip’s guides previously, these hardcover guides are more than worth the price.Tags: Contra, Dreamprism Press, Hand-Drawn Guides, kickstarter, Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, Nintendo, Philip Summers, The Legend Of Zelda
