Sensible Software’s birth and lifespan is to be charted in a brand new book that has just passed its funding goal on Kickstarter. ‘Sensible Software 1986–1999’ only needed $30,000, but ended up with over $39,000 in 30 days. You can pre-order the book now.

Created by Read Only Memory, the book can be pre-ordered over at the company’s website from October 16th.

Sensible Software was a hit studio back during the ’80s and ’90s, particularly during the Commodore Amiga days where it had great success with the twee football game Sensible Soccer, among others.

The Kickstarter project was created by ROM boss Darren Wall, who is creating the book with input from Sensible Software’s Jon Hare and industry veteran Gary Penn.
