If you're into gaming history, retro collections, or both, you'll no doubt have checked out Digital Eclipse's awesome docu-games in recent years. The Making of Karateka was the studio's most recent, and the first in its new Gold Master Series — games that double as comprehensive, interactive documentaries. It's just announced the next in this series — Llamasoft: The Jeff Minter Story.

As the name tells us, this upcoming game focuses its attention on British game designer extraordinaire, Jeff Minter, and his huge catalogue of titles. Stretching back to the very start of his career, the game features four interactive timelines with archival photos, design documents, and more from the man's history.

What's more, there are 42 (forty-two!) playable Jeff Minter games for you to check out as you learn about Llamasoft's legacy. This includes all his best-loved classics like Tempest 2000, one game developed for the unreleased Konix Multi-System, and a reimagined take on Gridrunner.
