I am still picking away on this project, actually had a good few weeks adding to it here and there.
The book now is heading towards 300 pages, mainly because after reading books like Sensible Software i decided to add level art, sprites, artwork etc which take a hefty 70 or so pages and got help with some great Amiga folk for the majority of those.
So whilst adding 100 pages to the project 3/4 of those have been completed already.
Also been working out Kickstarter campaign for this, of course if it doesn't make it then it will still be sold on Amazon and a couple of others, but it would be nice to get the best quality paperstock and hardcover because Amazons softcover and paper quality are pretty poor it has to be said!
So yeah another 6 months passes, ill probably update again in 6 months time to hopefully set up a kickstarter campaign after Christmas.

Delighted to hear this is still in production and your plans for it sound great so far, I recently helped Chris Wilkes with his Ocean book promotion and now his U.S.Gold book to help previsualize it for the kickstarter campaign to great effect and impact. You should consider this for the lemmings book, plus I'm sure a kickstarter for something of this nature will be highly successful, dying hear what the perks will entail :)

Just a little update to say things are progressing really well i've done alot of work on this over the last couple of months, page count is currently 308, so its all on schedule to be completed around November before proof ordered etc and will hit Kickstarter in Feb 2015.

On a side note i've been looking at Merchandise for the 25th Anniversary to alongside and have 4 designs to i've just ordered to be made into greetings cards, all professionallly made, 3 high gloss and 1 is spot uv which im looking forward seeing what it turns out like.

I've got other stuff in the works too, which ill tell more on later and a webshop which ill link when these cards arrive.

Haha! Don't go expecting anything too amazing! There just little gifts to sell alongside the book, also will be sold in a bundle.
The main one im waiting to hear back on the design as i may have to simpifiy it for the process it needs, but this one will only get the go ahead if the kickstarter makes it as its the most expensive one.
