ALEXEY PAJITNOV - THE INCREDIBLE STORY OF THE CREATOR OF TETRIS

Daniel Ichbiah



 

Do you know anyone who could claim that they didn't go crazy for Tetris after trying it? That she didn't devote hours of her life to it? Such is the magic of this game that was born in the freezing cold and snowstorms of the capital of the Soviet Empire. Yet the story told in these pages is confusing to say the least. Incredible, bordering on unbelievable, mixing intrigue and thrills, it could easily be a film!


It all started in Moscow in a scientific institute. It was there that the genius of mathematics, Alexey Pajitnov, realized on a computer the one that will become the icon of a whole generation: Tetris. A game that will turn the heads of Muscovites, and very quickly cross borders. But behind this popular success, a ruthless game of chess is being played out behind the scenes: while dollars are being traded by the millions on both sides of the Atlantic and the Pacific, Alexey Pajitnov does not receive anything for his creation!


To reconstruct this preposterous and yet real story, the author, Daniel Ichbiah, interviewed Alexey Pajitnov at length, but also his main friend, Henk Rogers. An exclusive and exciting official work with a thriller look, which will tell you about the incredible and true adventure of this universal icon that is Tetris through that of its brilliant designer!
