Ever wanted to try your hand at designing the cover art for a book about your favourite video game? Well now is your opportunity as Obilisk Games have whipped up the perfect storm to give you a chance to see your vision come true in the "My Book Cover" photo mode contest.

Partnering up with Boss Fight Books, the team at Obilisk invite you to jump into your preferred photo mode, capture creative images that you can imagine as the cover of a book about the game, and share them using the hashtag #MyBookCover.

You can enter as many times as you like for a chance to win some great prizes including a premium print of your entry as a mock-up cover, as well as physical and e-book editions of fantastic books on classic games from the Boss Fight Books library.

Share your cover art vision...

Boss Fights Books publishes nonfiction documentary-style books about classic video games, with each one taking a critical, historical, and personal look at a single game. Every book is also written by a different author including game designers, journalists, novelists, voice actors, film critics, musicians, and artists from in & out of the video game industry.

Aimed at anyone with an interest in games, the books show how games are worthy of our respect, curiosity, and criticism, as well as the opportunities within games as an art form. For more, check out the list of Boss Fight Books at, and be sure to read the thoughtful reviews from Obilisk below if you are interested:

I'm very happy to find this post. I'm sure many have entered this contest. As a book lover, I would like to write my own. But for that I need to develop my writing skills. Which are not enough yet and so I asked to help me in writing a purpose statement. To guarantee admission.
