There are several new developments going on around GIMMGP Headquarters, fair readers. Some fresh content on older blogs, a beautiful new art project, a tactical rebranding, and the debut of an Instagram account. Let’s get to it!
Longtime readers of GIMMGP may recall the creation of a Tumblr blog back in 2012 called Please Take One. This site serves as a digital archive for Chip’s collection of rare and odd video game brochures. After an extended hiatus, Please Take One is back to regular updates, and with Pokemon content, no less! For the next several months on Please Take One, you will see multiple posts from the six “issue” run of Pokemon Power! These mini-magazines were included as inserts in Nintendo Power back in 1998. Pokemon Power features excerpts from the Official Pokemon Strategy Guide, fan art, a comic adaptation of the anime, and other neat goodies. Be sure to follow Please Take One for all sorts of rare and nostalgic gaming brochures!
Meanwhile, over on Laura’s professional website, a new art project has appeared! Titled the, “Tarot Deco Project,” this new series will feature gorgeous and gilded versions of the classic cards. Laura plans to produce a piece for every card in the traditional tarot, starting with the Major Arcana. Be sure to keep an eye on her website for regular updates, and check out her Instagram account for insight into the creative process for each piece!
Finally, things are chugging along for Chip’s video game and beer pairings. The next several combinations are planned and in the works, with many tasty brews being paired to games both relatively new and delightfully old. He has also launched an Instagram account to share images of beers and games outside of the full length pairing posts. With so much going on, this project has been rebranded Digital Draughts, to celebrate the delicious taste of a draught beer combined with the joy of our preferred digital pastime. Please be sure to keep your eyes and palates here for future Digital Draughts posts, and follow the related Instagram account for all of the pours and plays between the main posts.
As always, thank you to all of our followers and regular readers over the last five years. We look forward to sharing all sorts of creative collaborations and gaming goodness with you!
