If Video Games Were Little Golden Books…

by Hazel Chua

Remember the Little Golden Books you read as a child? Well, they’re making a comeback in a bid to make themselves relevant to the older crowd, especially to the gamers.

We kid. It’s not an official effort by the publishers and they’re not actual books either. Rather, they’re just artistic covers done by animator Joebot that are based on the original cover art of the Golden Books.

So how did this series come about? Well, Joebot liked the art on the original books so much that he decided to pattern fictional books based on Bioshock, Portal and Skyrim. The results are awesome and it’s all really done in keeping with the theme and the books’ classic style. Scroll down to get a closer looks at each of the covers.

“Somewhere, beyond the sea, there lived a little girl and her big friend Mr. Bubbles.”

“The Cake may be a lie, but the friendship between a little girl and her robot friend is true love.”

“Our hero, our hero… claims a warriors heart, but the body of a child.” 

Prints are available at Joebot’s Etsy store, where they retail for $20(USD) each. You can also get the entire set of three for $50.
