GamesMaster: The Oral History
GamesMaster: The Oral History charts the highs and lows of Channel 4’s iconic and anarchic UK videogames entertainment show. Conceived and edited by by superfan Jack Templeton and guided by show host Dominik Diamond, the project raised more than double its funding target during a month-long Kickstarter campaign conducted in 2021. The completed book spans over 95,000 words and features over 40 contributors including the production crew, celebrity guests and show contestants that helped to make GamesMaster an icon of 1990s TV. It also features a foreword from Robbie Williams, in which he throws some serious shade at Jason Orange.
GamesMaster: The Oral History features a revival version of the show’s custom display typeface, retooled especially for the book by its original designers Chris Mills and Simon Dunstan.
