Want a Sneak Peak at Issue 2’s Cover?

Hello, Ladies and Gentle Gamers!

With August coming to an end, that means another issue of Backlog and Bucket List Gaming is just around the corner.

If you haven’t picked up Issue 1 yet, you can do so by clicking on the awesome links at the bottom of this post.

In the mean time, here’s a sneak peak at the color scheme of issue 2’s cover.

You Ready?

You really ready?

Backlog and Bucket List Gaming Issue 2 Cover Sneak Peak

The cool thing about having already put in the work to create the overall cover design is that the composition and parameters of the cover has already been finished. Therefore, all I really had to focus on is changing the color scheme as well as making minor improvements here and there. I was going for a subdued, Summer transitioning into Autumn look to contrast the bright design of the previous issue.

It was a fun cover to design, and I can’t wait to see how I’ll tinker with it in the future.

Thanks for reading, fellow gamers! Backlog and Bucket List Gaming Issue 2 will be available in the coming weeks.

Sometimes, You Need A Running Start

When it comes to gaming news and the next game to play, sometimes you need a running start.

Just ask Aero the Acro-Bat. After all, Aero the Acro-Bat (GBA, SNES, GENESIS) is one of our Bucket List Games of the month in Backlog and Bucket List Gaming Issue #1.

*Aero the Acro-Bat is a videogame character . . . acrobat, so he probably doesn’t play games, sadly. Or read gaming news. Don’t be like Aero. Be an educated gamer. Be gamercated. 🙂
