Hideo Kojima wrote a book, which probably isn’t all that shocking. Given that he’s one of the most prolific game developers around, it’s surprising it didn’t happen sooner! Anyway, the pre-order of the English localization of The Creative Gene: How books, movies, and music inspired the creator of Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid is currently discounted at Amazon.
For most Kojima fans, it’s no surprise that movies, books, and basically anything but video games inspired the story and direction of the legendary Metal Gear Solid series. But, with The Creative Gene, you can read more about it from the man himself. Amazon describes the book as “[a] collection of essays explores some of the inspirations behind one of the titans of the video game industry, and offers an exclusive insight into one of the brightest minds in pop culture.”
Essentially it’s perfect for any Kojima fan to read and display proudly on their shelves. The Creative Gene isn’t set to release until October 12, but you can save 20% off the pre-order at Amazon UK and 10% off the pre-order at Amazon US.
Finally, remember that if you pre-order your book now and it drops in price before October, you’ll automatically get the max savings since you placed the pre-order. So you might as well put in the pre-order now, and if you can save more later, even better.
If you’re in the US, that’s not the end of the gaming book deals, though! There is currently a buy one, get one 50% sale at Amazon US right now, and it includes a variety of gaming artbooks and, uh, normal books. If you’re looking to buff up your collection, now is a good opportunity!
