SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works is an 25th anniversary look-back at the history of Sega’s 16-bit machine. it’s now been funded on Kickstarter, and research for the tome has unearthed some previously-unseen concept art from such games as Toejam & Earl and Comix Zone.

We first reported on the book here.

Kickstarter funding for the project has now hit £68,318 of an intended £30,000 goal.

The books creators Read-Only Memory got in touch with the images, which you can see below. The book charts the creation of Sega’s console, and includes 20 interviews, including chats with Greg Johnson (Co-Creator of ToeJam & Earl), Peter Morawiec (Creator of Comix Zone), Rich Karpp (Developer of Vectorman and Vectorman 2), Michael Latham (Producer of Eternal Champions) and Ed Annunziata (Creator of Ecco the Dolphin).

So basically, if you’re a Sega fan, you’ll probably go ape for this. What do you think?
