Untold Stories of Japanese Developers launches on Kickstarter

Polygon - John Szczepaniak is afraid the Japanese-English language barrier is preventing us from mining the history of the Japanese video game industry, and as consoles — and people — pass on, we're in danger of losing it altogether.

That's why he has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a book about it.

I backed this. I think it'd have a greater chance of success if the tiers were not as expensive though.

One of the things the industry is worst at is preserving its history. We've started doing it better these last 5 years or so, but there are so many stories left untold.

Unlike some game Kickstarters, you know what you're going to get here is original, it's not just some genre rehash, and his budget is clear and realistic.
