A Kickstarter for a video game is something you see almost everyday at this point. But one for a video game book? That’s significantly rarer. Make it about video game culture, and it’s even more unique.

But even then, you’ll be hard press to find something that’s as flat out beautiful looking as Every Day is Play by Matthew Kenyon.

Still, pretty pictures and a sexy layout will only go so far. Thankfully, Kenyon’s showcase of the “designers, musicians, artists, writers and developers that have taken inspiration from the art that we grew up with” is overflowing with mighty fine folk.

Including Nolan Bushnell (you know, the guy who made Atari), our pals Fangamer (who we’re doing a show with, in case you haven’t heard), video game romantic Brandon Boyer (who is going through a few things, so send him some love if you can), and Attract Mode’s very own Cory Schmitz (sup).

Oh, and I’ll be doing something as well, it has just been revealed. Am definitely stoked to take part! Though nothing’s happening unless the goal is met; Every Day is Play could definitely use some support right about now, and most importantly, it absolutely deserves it. Please donate and help spread the word; you all have four days left to go!
