If you’re a fan of Sega’s last throw of the dice in the console hardware market (and if you’re anything like me, you will be), you’ll be very pleased to know that Read-Only Memory has been successful in funding its Sega Dreamcast: Collected Works project. With the goal of creating a high quality book full of Dreamcast artwork, production sketches, screenshots and more, the publisher was looking for £68,000. It has far exceeded that target, with over £80,000 pledged at the time of writing.
Sega Dreamcast: Collected Works is the second licensed book Read-Only Memory will have produced with Sega, the first being Mega Drive: Collected Works. That previous book was an outstanding product – as well as impressive physical production with fold-out pages and high quality, weighty paper, the archive access allowed for all sorts of previously unseen artwork to be unearthed, and new interviews with Sega staff. With the same people in charge, we have high hopes for this book too.
If this sounds like your kind of project, books are available for a £35 pledge and three special editions themed around Jet Set Radio, Shenmue and Phantasy Star Online are available for a £150 pledge.
