DIALOGUE BOX: ORAL HISTORIES OF VIDEO GAMES

David L. Craddock



 

Too often, the voices of developers most critical to a game's success go unheard. David L. Craddock's Dialogue Box puts designers, artists, programmers, musicians, producers, QA testers, and other developers front and center, giving readers firsthand accounts of how classic video games were—and still are—made.


This book is split into 3 chapters:

  1. Threading the Needle: The Oral History of Team Fortress

  2. Unfulfilled Nostalgia: Diamond Select Toys' Mortal Kombat Collectibles

  3. World On Fire: The Oral History of Fallout and Fallout 2
