Those books were fan fiction, with money involved, basically. So here’s a nostalgic rush for you; Phil, one of Digitally Downloaded’s buddies and contributor to the popular Nintendo fansite, NintendoLife, is reviving the spirit of Worlds of Power, and he’s looking for contributions.
This project is not a for-profit deal. In fact, Phil is going to be out of pocket to bring this project to realisation; he’s going to pay to get it nicely laid out by a professional designer.
So if writing deliberately bad fiction about some of your favourite game series sounds good, be sure to click on over here to have a read of what Phil’s looking for in contributions. To put it simply though; if you’re a fan of writing long form fan fiction (a couple of dozen pages worth of content), and feel a burning urge to write about a NES game, then be sure to get writing to get published!
On a more serious note this is a seriously great idea and I can’t wait to see the final product. After hearing that Phil himself has written a piece on Battletoads for this project, I really can’t wait to see the final product.
