About us

Publishing Extravaganza: Look Behind You is the premium publisher for exclusive art books on video game culture and specialized literature on retro technology and game development. We create, produce and distribute German and English language books, digital editions and interactive media about video games and digital entertainment.

At Look Behind You, founded in 2022 by Nico Barbat and Simon Neumann, we connect internationally renowned authors and enthusiastic media makers with passionate gamers and ardent fans. We develop media with heart and eye for detail – made by fans for fans.

And all this with full conviction “made in Germany” and with a focus on sustainable production. When selecting paper and printing processes as well as delivery routes and packaging, Look Behind You sets high standards for environmental compatibility and corporate responsibility, but without compromising product quality. Our paper sources come from sustainably managed forests that are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. Our books are produced in a CO2-neutral and resource-saving way. We provide information about our climate protection measures every year in voluntary environmental statements – as a matter of responsibility for our environment and our readers. This is another reason why we are a proud member of Games Forest, the video game industry’s sustainability initiative.
