    Finally!

    I still can't reveal everything, we are still preparing a deluxe edition with poster and a few other goodies that are still pending, but the book was fully proof-read, a bunch of screenshots were replaced for much better ones (for exemple, I recently replayed Witcher 2 in 4k) and updated the reviews with new information (like The Bard's Tale Trilogy remaster).

    The new reviews depend on the last version you got of the book... after release I added Sea Dogs/Age of Pirates, Academagia: The Making of Mages and Gates of Skeldal / Brány Skeldalu. I wanted to keep adding, but I had to deliver a final version back in May for proof-reading. I sneaked up a few minor changes later, but there was no time to add the SpellForce 1-3 review I wanted... it will be for the 2.0 release ;)

    BTW, be sure to brofist Merlkir for that kickass cover art (which I can't post in high res yet).

    Heh, I guess I'll be anonymous on the physical copy as well.

    Which is a good thing, won't have to bear the shame of not actually writing about something worthwhile.

    Just to clear something up I read elsewhere: The book will open up for pre-orders two months from now, but the book itself will not be available and/or shipped until November 2019... a whole year from now? Can anyone confirm/deny this?

    I've been reading this (the last available version) during the last summer and I have to say, it was a fun read. I won't mind reading it again once it's available once more, if only to see which new things I discover.

    I found that the reviews of ME 3 and Fallout 3 were too positive IMO though.

    Where'd you hear that?
    It says: "Bitmap Books is proud to announce it will be publishing a new title called The CRPG Book: A Guide to Computer Role-Playing Games in early 2019. "

    No, the book will be shipped 1-2 months after the pre-order starts, depending on some final details (like the limited edition bonuses). The only "November" in the press release is the current date, November 2018.

    Actually, both editions are limited. My contract is that I can distribute the updated free ebook once they sell out - or after a certain amount of time has passed. ;)

    So the ebook will return in 2019, the exact date depending on how fast the book sells.

    Had a feeling you'd say that. Its why I deliberately informed the Codex AFTER my copy had been secured. :P

    Awesome felipepepe many congrat.

    Just curious though, how much money did you make from the contract, and how much does the publisher get to keep from the proceeds?

    Just pre-ordered the Standard Edition, too much 'unnecessary' extra stuff with the CE.

    Cheers!

    - Soon I'll have a library of Bitmap Books, got the Amiga compendium 3 years ago as well.

    I can't reveal all the details while the contract is active, but my cut will be around 13,000-20,000 dollars.

    Considering the exchange rate to Brazilian reais, that's around 50-70 minimum wages we're donating. :P

    I bought a few copies of each, i don't care if its valuable or not.

    I think it's great gifts to give to bros.


    I'm not sure the Collectors edition is really worth the mark up, but when are they ever :its a mystery:

    I'll have to get this after the pre-order period. Can't ship to Canada, and my current US shipping address is annoying for not telling me when things come in while also only holding things for 2 weeks.
