#BlogapieGamer | Check Out My Video Game Passion Project

Welcome to another #BlogapieGamer, a gaming blog series that chronicles a behind-the-scenes look at my creative career.

#BlogapieGamer | Check Out My Video Game Passion Project

Today, I want to show you a my video game passion project I started in 2012.

Under my author pen name, The Jason Jack, I began writing You Know You’re A Gamer When . . . five years ago with the concept coming to me in the latter part of the 2000s. It is a comedic, reverent, and nostalgia driven book I had great pride and joy in writing.

It took many years to create due to life events along with myself over complicating the project. Then, I told myself to just finish it already and get it out in the world. The self talk worked.

And I’m proud of the finished project although it took a decent amount of work. Since I have always been primarily a Nintendo gamer (85% Nintendo; 10% Steam; 5% PlayStation at the current moment), I had to make sure I made the book as widely appealing as possible and I think I did just that, thanks to having owned a PS 1, 2, 3, and Vita TV as well as a couple Xbox 360s. So there are references that all gamers can relate to and enjoy.

Perhaps when I get the time, I will write a sequel. And hopefully take less than five years to produce it.

Here is a copy of my blog about the book’s release:
