I have been working on 8-bit Memoirs for the past 5 years, and now it seems it’ll finally be released this December.
It is an eBook that’ll run on your PS3, PS4 and XB1, because it uses the same technology as Blu-play games: Blu-ray Disc Java.
This project will be interesting to anyone who likes to read and has an interest in the old 8-bit consoles and computers from the 80s. If you’re that generation yourself, you may find it interesting to recognize scenarios from your own life. And if you’re a younger generation, you may find it fun to read about how my generation experienced the beginning of what has now become the modern PC’s and gaming-consoles we use today.
You use your gamepad to navigate the menu and pages. Usage guide available on the first pages, but it’s very straight forward:
General: Click left/right to browse pages back and forth in the current text.
General: Click up/down to go to previous or next text.
PlayStation: Click SQUARE to enter MENU MODE from where you select another text with X.
PlayStation: Click SQUARE again in MENU MODE to exit to main menu.
PlayStation: While reading a text, click X to show screenshots and illustrations in fullscreen.
Xbox One: Click MENU to enter MENU MODE from where you select another text with A.
Xbox One: Click MENU again in MENU MODE to exit to main menu.
Xbox One: While reading a text, click A to show screenshots and illustrations in fullscreen.
8-bit Memoirs will be available as a free ISO download, so you can burn your own copy. But I will also offer a physical disc release that you can buy if you’re too lazy to download and burn yourself – or if you just want to support the project.
The book itself contains the equivalent of 250 pages of text, 5 hours of background music, 9 hours of supplemental videos, 100 screenshots and 14 illustrations. Enough entertainment for a while.
Early YouTube preview available at http://8bitmemoirs.com/
Will post again when the project is available.
