GALAGA by MICHAEL KIMBALL – Atomic Books
Friday, July 11.
Michael Kimball will discuss his new book on the classic arcade game Galaga.
We’ll also have a Galaga arcade game set up in Eightbar and a Galaga tournament all weekend long. Details and prizes will be announced at the event.
Galaga is part of the Boss Fight Books series.
Boss Fight Books publishes books about classic video games. Each book takes a critical, creative, historical, and/or personal look at a single game. Some books will be about the history of the game’s creation, some will focus on particular elements like level design, story, and music, some will investigate the subculture that has formed around a game, some will bring in outside art, science, and media, and some will have a strong autobiographical element.
