Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Adam Pennyman is ruled by an obsession of his own creation: the Catalogue of Obsolete Entertainments, an encyclopedic directory referencing every video game ever played.  But his chronicling hits a snag when Adam realizes that no matter where he looks, he can find nothing about “Lucky Wander Boy,” the game that meant the world to him as a kid.

Then his luck starts to turn: A chance encounter lands him a copywriting job at Portal Entertainment, the monolithic media company that holds the film rights to the “Lucky Wander Boy” concept.  Soon Adam embarks on a journey through the corporate sprawl of Hollywood that will ultimately lead him to the games beautiful creator, Araki Itachi.  But even with the help of a plucky fellow game-head named Clio, such a reckless expedition will require the agility of Pac-Man, the nerves of Mario, and the tenacity of Frogger.  Not to mention, a whole lot of luck.

Synopsis:

Like "High Fidelity" for video game junkies, "Lucky Wander Boy" follows a child of the 80s on his quest to find the perfect game.
