What Is Bitpunk?

It seems like every day there are new categories of media to ingest, and it can be hard to keep up with the evolving genres. You may have no idea what “Bitpunk” means at all. 

I didn’t.

Some people are reluctant to move on from the games of their childhood, and many sources have noted the recent rise in retro, “old school” video games.

Bitpunk books have elements of retro classic video games and technologies of the ’70s, ‘80s and, in some cases, early ’90s. 

Bitpunk is still a relatively new genre to the book world, so there isn’t a huge variety out there yet. 

Characterized by its nostalgia for the classic technologies, you may want to try your hand at Bitpunk. 

The field is wide open for you to make your mark in this emerging genre.
