Tim Schafer says...

"Recently, I was looking back on the amazing 20 years we've had as a game company, and... I totally drew a blank. Seriously, my memory just isn't what it used to be. So I summoned my court scribes and said, 'Pen me a tome, worthy of the ages, so that I shall remember every amazing detail of this crazy ride we've been on, and so that nobody, not even I, forgets this amazing story.'

And so they did.

Every up, every down, every crazy sideways shimmy we've ever done is in this illustrated manuscript for all to remember. Heroic ballad? Cautionary tale? You be the judge!"
