Introducing Hand-Drawn Gaming!

Introducing Hand-Drawn Gaming, a bi-monthly 8-page newsletter that is all the best bits of the things you've come to love about Hand-Drawn Game Guides, your favorite classic game magazines, and full of all original artwork. It'll come in both digital and physical versions as well. The new subscription-based approach will be handled through Patreon, which I thought offered the best platform for what I'm planning to deliver.

If you're interested in learning more, head on over the Patreon page for all the details.

The Original Unofficial Guides, for FREE!

Relive some of your favorite classic game franchises in a whole new way with Hand-Drawn Game Guides free fan art filled PDF guides. You'll be blasting your way through the vile Red Falcon's armies, getting revenge for your father, rescuing the princess and exterminating a whole species like a pro. These are not for sale or affiliated with the respective companies that created these games. They're fan art. Just like all the other fan created pieces of media that exist out in the world.

Game Reflections

Every year for over a decade I've tracked every game I've finished. This year I wanted to start something new where I take a moment to write up some thoughts and make an illustration for each game that I've completed. These are less a review and more just gathering thoughts on the experience around the game. It's a bit of an experiment for now and could change as time rolls on. This section will be updated frequently throughout the year.
