Lost In Cult’s ‘A Handheld History’ Is An Unofficial Love Letter To Portable Gaming

Handheld consoles have been instrumental to the growth and popularity of gaming as a whole. Without the likes of Nintendo’s own Game Boy, DS, or even the Switch, we frankly dread to think what the industry would look like.

Gaming journal publisher ‘Lost in Cult’ is looking to celebrate the storied history of portable consoles with a new book, simply titled ‘A Handheld History’. It will dive into the systems and games that define handheld gaming, and is said to be “less of a historical account and more of a poignant, introspective adventure across decades of gaming memories”.

The book will include multiple writers pitching in with their own remarks and memories, including a couple of familiar faces here at Nintendo Life (see if you can spot them!). The full list includes:

Brandon Saltalamacchia, Jason Bradbury, The Retro Future, Kevin Kenson, Mike Diver, Bob Wulf, Janet Garcia, James Mielke, Ashens, Jeff Grub, Retro Game Corps, Larry Bundy Jr., Brian Crecente, Anthony Wallace, TristaBytes, Faith Johnson, Alex Olney, Austin Voight, Sandeep Rai, Jason Brown, Ben Bulbeck, Laurie Eggleston, Ryan Stevens, Priscilla Wells, Diana Green, Jeff Zoldy, Jamie Sharp, Paulo Kawanishi, Abram Buehner, Shaun Hughes, Ryan Easby, Jess Elizabeth Reed, Jamie Fox, Jim Hargreaves, Scott Russell, Georgina Young, Mitchell Brownson, Nate Ellingsworth, Madeline Blondeau, and Andrew Oysten

Lost in Cult is looking for £21,000 by 6pm GMT on May 9th in order to produce the book. The project is currently sitting at £15,500, so hopefully it won’t be long until they meet their end-goal.

You can pre-order a copy of the book over on Lost in Cult’s official website. Should the project fail to reach its goal, all orders will be fully refunded. Let us know in the comments if you’re looking to pick up a copy!
