Jagged Alliance 2 Update August 06 2014

Hey All,

Hope you're having a great summer.

We're getting really excited here to deliver book #5 in less than three weeks on Monday, August 25. It's Jagged Alliance 2 by Darius Kazemi. We're really proud of it. This is the first title in our series in which the author has been granted full access to the game's creators. It offers a detailed look at how a great game gets made, as told by a writer who has spent a lot of time in the game industry himself. The book also features a foreword from games journalist Rob Zacny. We're tweeting snippets from the book all month from @BossFightBooks.

If you're a writer and you'd like to read an early digital review copy of JA2, please let us know at

In the cool press department, we've got new reviews of Chrono Trigger, Galaga, Galaga, and a Galaga excerpt.

For just a couple more days, anyone who buys a paperback from our store can enter discount code "DOLLA" on checkout for $1 off.

Meanwhile, the final book of Season One is following close behind. Super Mario Bros. 2 by Jon Irwin comes out in late September. I think you'll find it's worth the wait!
