Lemmings - The Ports Book Out Now!


Check out the official book trailer above!

Yes, after a big change of plan over the last few weeks, I've decided not to take my book to Kickstarter, instead I've gone the 'soft' launch route and put it for sale via Amazon Createspace and my webstore 

The bad news is the hardback version is no longer happening, but the goods news is I received my paperback edition this week and it's mighty fine! A hefty beast of Lemmings goodness with vibrant images and colours throughout. The other goods news for most of you especially International buyers is that postage will be alot cheaper than what i could have offered (UK buyers its around the same for us) so alot of people save on the price! Along with getting the book 6 months earlier
