"Emily Care Boss designs beautiful games about the most important thing in the world: love. Her games are so strong, so obviously right, so elegant and well crafted, that you forget how important they are in the joy of playing them."
Kenneth Hite, Designer of NIGHT'S BLACK AGENTS

“I played a game of Breaking the Ice on my honeymoon! It’s a really fun game and great for both experienced role-players and non-gamers.”
Kat Jones, Designer of REVIVED and SLAYER CAKE

Shooting the Moon’s wonderful focus on the unstable triangle of two competing suitors and one occasionally bewildered but always beguiling beloved is a perfect recipe for excitement and romance. You can confidently plunge into Jane Austen or dinosaur wrestling, and Shooting the Moon will deliver every time.”
Jason Morningstar, Designer of FIASCO and NIGHT WITCHES

“This was my first chance to try a Jeepform game, and I was incredibly impressed with the variety of gaming techniques available. This is a game that truly got under my skin and affected me deeply and passionately.”

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
