Hey, buddies! It’s been a while, but we’re finally back with a full preview of the Camp Buddy Artbook, along with pricing and release info for the digital version! We’ve worked extra hard to make this book special, and it turned into much more than just an artbook – there’s development info, trivia, sketches, and so much more packed into a massive 248-page book called “Camp Buddy : The Journal”! Check out the table of contents below:
Woah, that’s a lot of stuff! We’ll be going into detail about each section below, so please read the entire post for the full information!
Please note – Preview Images may not 100% reflect the final product and could be subject to minor changes.
Journal Entry 1 – Official Art Gallery:
The first of our six sections is the official art gallery, containing all of the major promotional images used throughout the development of Camp Buddy! It even contains a brand new, amazing illustration – the cover for the Camp Buddy artbook! Check it out below:
Journal Entry 2 – Concept & Characters:
Everyone knows and loves the cast of Camp Buddy, but it turns out, there’s still a lot more to find out about them! This section is full of developer trivia, sketches and comments about each character, along with a full, expanded character profile for the main characters, and additional profiles for the side characters! Check out Keitaro’s below:
The first page of each main character’s profile contains their basic info and a brand-new ID card for each character, containing their basic stats! Let’s check out the second page with Hiro:
The second page has a full explanation of the character design concept from the creators themselves, as well as the original design, trivia and comments too! We’re sure everyone will love all of this new info and the many, never before seen sketches!
Journal Entry 3 – Story Event Illustrations:
The story is the backbone of Camp Buddy, and we’ve taken extra care to compile all of the art from each route into its own section, and filled them with trivia, development insights, initial sketches and more! Reading through each character’s story section will give you even more info about the characters than before, all in a fun, easy to read format!
This section is chock full of information, and you won’t want to miss any of it! But that’s not all for the story – everyone knows that a crucial component of Camp Buddy is the sexual scenes, and we’ve gone the extra step to ensure that all of the character’s sexual details have been spilled! Each of the main characters get their own dedicated ‘sexual info’ page, including info such as position preferences, fetishes, foreplay minigame interactions, and even penis sizes! The side characters will get some of their own sexual information for the first time too, so you can look forward to that as well!
Beyond the sexual info, we’ve also made each of the sex scenes into their own dedicated sections with developer insights, sketches and comments too! It’s a mirror of the story section, just quite a bit naughtier for your viewing pleasure!
Lastly, we’ve also compiled all of the backgrounds and their work in progress sketches, along with some info about the world of Camp Buddy, including a map of the campgrounds! If you’ve ever been confused about where anything at Camp was, we’ll be clearing it up with this!
Journal Entry 4 – Development & Multimedia
There are tons of assets used in Camp Buddy, from various interfaces, to sound design and voice acting. We decided to dedicate a full section to this, and are going to be showcasing interviews with the development team, as well as sketches and information about how the interfaces were designed, such as the foreplay minigame below!
Journal Entry 5 – Fanworks
Camp Buddy wouldn’t be where it is without the fanbase, and we wanted to give a dedicated section for them and all the awesome artwork that has been created so far! We featured plenty of artists that have made an impact on the community, and even invited special guest artists to get their own interpretation of the Camp Buddy characters! You can look forward to seeing all of these in the book, as we’ll keep them a secret for right now~
The final section of the artbook is a much-requested feature by many fans – a full game walkthrough! You’ll find every choice scene in every route laid out in a friendly, easy to understand method here, so go and get that perfect ending, buddies!

If this has a physical copy(and also all Camp Buddy merchandise), would there be any chance it will be available to be shipped, or better, sold in Malaysia? Maybe, at Animangaki or Comic Fiesta?
Is there any possible chance of a camp buddy 2?
There will be an expansion route featuring Yoshinori pursuing either Goro or Aiden, but there are no plans for additional routes beyond these at this time!
I have to make a note to come back around April 3rd/4th and get the art book.

Hi and thank you for the great news about artbook. Can I ask how can I see the swimsuit contest in the game, I mean is it related to some of the character´s route? Thank you

Hello! You will be able to purchase the digital artbook online this Friday, April 3rd!
This is amazing! Keep up the good work. I’m excited for the potential Yoshinori expansion.
Take your time with that book guys, I can wait. 🙂
Does this mean, camp buddy after releasing The book will be over ? ….
After the artbook is released, we will finish Camp Buddy’s Patch 2.2, which will be final update for the main Camp Buddy game!
I know you said a physical copy of the book will not be available in the near future, and I don’t know if you an idea but, where would a physical copy of the book be found? Would it just be found on this website, or could you find the book at a certain book store, or other retail stores?
If we are able to sell a physical copy, it will be available on our website here, or at conventions we attend!
Who owns the digital copy (pays $ 50) will not have a discount on the arbook?
In Brazil, the dollar has already passed $ 5 for each R$ 1 ?
Hello, while there are no discounts currently on the artbook, we will hold sales occasionally, so please look out for those!
Is the price of the upcoming physical book known yet?
The physical book is not available anytime in the near future, so we have not determined a price for it at the moment.
When you say say you are currently unable to make physical copies, does that mean there is a possibility of them being produced in the future? If so, would this be done by say, end of 2020 if possible?
It’s possible, but right now we are not capable of doing so and are unsure of a timeline when it would be possible. We are researching the possibility, however!
