Video Games Reimagined As Vintage Sci-Fi Books


We're not sure who first uttered the line "Never judge a book by its cover", but they clearly needed to hire a better illustrator. Someone like Joshua Ketchen, whose covers are just begging to be poured over, scrutinised and rightly praised. 

For his series Arcade Adventures, Ketchen has taken an assortment of legendary video game titles and put them through a flaky sci-fi fiction lens. The results are a line of vintage noir novels that we'd happily spend our small change on.

Titles include adaptations of Metroid, Resident Evil and BioShock - each fitting the aesthetic of Ketchen's style with surprising ease. 

You can pick up prints of the series from Ript, and be sure to check out his Tumblr for more of his work.
