THE BOOK OF GRAPHIC ADVENTURES

Raúl Muñoz, Carlos Climent, Jordi Marsal, René Hernández, Daniel Tortajada



 

In the last stretch of the 20th century, graphic adventures were going through their most golden era. Players from around the world eagerly awaited the latest release from companies like Sierra or LucasArts , the greatest exponents of a magical genre, whose plot and background are above any other foundation.


The Graphic Adventures book is the most complete book dedicated to the «point and click» genre written in Spanish, a self-produced work that follows the guidelines set by our « Legends » label.


In its pages you will find everything related to graphic adventures: from the origin and history of the genre, reports from the most important developers and distributors, biographies and interviews* with prominent personalities, and even a section dedicated to the famous anti-copy protections that adventures used to include.


This volume compiles, arranged through different eras, the legacy of a genre that saw the birth of classics such as The Secret of Monkey Island , King's Quest , Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis , Day of the Tentacle , Simon the Sorcerer or The Blackwell Legacy , among many others, up to a total of 123 analyzed titles.


Introduced by the founder of Killmonday Games and creator of Fran Bow , Natalia Martinsson , The Book of Graphic Adventures will make you remember those titles that you enjoyed in the past and will also discover many new ones, as graphic adventures are once again more alive than ever


A volume written and created with love and with the deepest respect for the genre, in which Raúl Muñoz (from Agoty and Pixelsmansion ), the trio Carlos Climent , Jordi Marsal and René Hernández (from Game Museum ) and Daniel Tortajada have invested more than three years of hard work and research.


If you grew up accompanying Guybrush on his adventures or searching for Atlantis with Indiana Jones, you won't find a better book for you.
