The Rogue Souls Bundle – Curated by Simon Carless
Continuing its popular “pay what you want” ebook bundles, StoryBundle have presented the Rogue Souls Game StoryBundle. This very special bundle includes 10 standout game-centric ebooks headed by Dark Souls tribute ‘You Died’ & Rogue genre history ‘Dungeon Hacks’ – with the newly launched Video Game History Foundation non-profit designated as the charity for this bundle.
As part of the $5 tier, The Rogue Souls Game StoryBundle includes ‘Beep – The Complete Interviews’ from Karen Collins & Chris Greening, conducted for the acclaimed game audio documentary we all know and love, featuring a ton of amazing interviews with notable Western and Japanese game audio sound designers, composers and voice actors. Also included is ‘Boss Fight Books – Mega Man 3’ by Salvatore Pane, an affecting personal history that’s also a deep look into Capcom’s all-time NES classic Mega Man 3, one of the trickiest but most rewarding platformers ever to grace Nintendo platforms. There a numerous other great books as part of this bundle too if you’re into video game literature. However the fact that the WHOLE set of Beep interviews are included, it’s well worth the money!
