"Buttonless" book on iOS games

Hey guys. Just thought I'd let you know that there's a new book coming out that features a ton of info about some of the best iOS games. It's got backstories on a lot of the games (including my game 100 Rogues, which, thanks to the magic of the alphabetical ordering system, comes first) too.

Right now it's just in pre-order mode, but anyway thought I should pass it along to y'all. Check it out:

We're in it as well, with our game Compression. If you're at all interested in some of the behind the scenes in game creation, give this book a look!

I second this! I've seen a preview of one of the chapters and it's very interesting - really looking forward to getting a copy as it has the back-story and info about the development of a lot of games I like.

Mos Speedrun is in it too, very excited to be amongst a list of other great games!

Very clever to get all the devs to 'sign' this thread, now I want to read it!
