SHOOTER Release Date and Website

Shooter Book Cover - 800 x 1200 (300 DPI)

So, last December I announced SHOOTER, a collection of criticism about games with guns, here on Digital Love Child (and posted an older, slightly different version of its cover). Now, after many further months of work, we have a release date!

SHOOTER will be available to purchase on June 2nd, 2015 at

It includes 15 chapters from a diverse group of some of the best videogame critics around, accompanying illustrations by (the nastily talented) Paul Sousa, and a foreword by (professional smart guy) Clint Hocking, Creative Director of Far Cry 2 and Splinter Cell.

It’s an electronic book (or “e-book” if you’re cool) and available in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats.

I hope you’re as excited to read it as we are to finally release it!
