The CRPG Book (Featuring My TRON 2.0 Review) To Be Published As Physical Book In Early 2019

By TronFAQ on Monday, November 05, 2018 at 11:41 PM

The CRPG Book – which I contributed to, in the form of a review of TRON 2.0 – will finally be receiving a printed physical copy in early 2019!


I’ve posted about the book before. But in case you missed those posts: the book contains reviews of hundreds of CRPG games. Said reviews are written by passionate fans of the genre, along with luminaries in game development or the gaming press, such as: Chris Avellone (Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, Fallout: New Vegas), Peter “Durante” Thoman (of DSFix fame), George Weidman (Super Bunnyhop), and Jason Scott (Internet Archive), etc.

If you have any interest in the history of the CRPG (Computer Role Playing Game) genre of video games, you should at least check out the free online .PDF version of the book when it becomes available. But the physical version of the book will be released first. The project is non-profit, and all proceeds from sales of the physical book will go to charity.

As it turns out, a lot of people were against the inclusion of TRON 2.0 in the CRPG Book, because they don’t consider it a "true" CRPG. But it does actually fit the definition of a CRPG. So I’m thankful to the creator of the book, Felipe Pepe, for including it. TRON 2.0 deserves to be remembered.

January 17th, 2019 UPDATE: The CRPG Book is now available for pre-order!
