Video Games, Reimagined As Classic Paperback Novels

Video Games, Reimagined As Classic Paperback Novels

Digital artist Zachary Knoles really touched the spot when he redesigned video games and its characters as aged, dusty covers of classic paperback novels.

Given the complex story of Xenogears, it would be quite an interesting read as a sci-fi novel from the '80s.

Here's more of his work: Kerrigan from StarCraft II now looks like a drow from a '90s AD&D novel, and Samus got transformed into a robot from some Russian sci-fi.

    That awkward moment when they say samus aran is a guy....

      That awkward moment when you don't know her gender was only revealed at the end of the first Metroid game...

        That awkward moment when the book covers weren't particularly good, so it's probably not worth arguing over 20+ year old spoilers....

        OMG I haven't passed it yet, could you at least use a spoiler tag?!

        It's one thing to be ambiguous, it's another to lie.

          The manual for the original metroid referred to Samus as a man, so this just being consistent with that.

      As the artist says, SHH you'll spoil the ending!
