The History of Ocean Software Kickstarter

Hot on the heels of the recently created Amiga Works Kickstarter campaign, by musician Allister Brimble, comes another exciting retro project.

This new campaign hopes to raise enough funds to enable the creation of a 300-page, full colour, hardback book, covering the history of Ocean Sofrware, from 1983 to 1998.

The book price starts at £25, with some exciting perks further up the financial ladder, should you with to put more money down. These perks include signed copies of the book and framed posters by the legendary Ocean artist, Bob Wakelin.

Here's Ocean Kickstarter mastermind, Chris Wilkins, with some more information;
"Ocean Software was a revered and well respected software house all over the world, producing and developing iconic games throughout the 8 and 16-bit era.

'The History Of Ocean' will unfold the story of Ocean; exploring the company's origins, its employees, their games, their music and the iconic artwork that placed the company at the forefront of the games industry for over a decade.

With your support we want to produce the definitive Ocean book - full colour, high production quality and written by Roger Kean of Newsfield, the company that gave us the seminal Crash, ZZap 64 and Amtix magazines".
More information, including a 2 minute video detailing the project in full can be found over on the Ocean Software Kickstarter page.
