In the mid-1990s, the Spanish video game industry still had a certain inferiority complex when compared to its namesakes from other countries. After a so-called Golden Age in the eighties, local productions had achieved occasional success abroad, although none had achieved it on a global scale. Until Commandos appeared.
This book narrates the vital journey of Pyro Studios, from its birth to its disappearance, to shape one of the first AAA created in Spain: a game that shaped a subgenre within real-time strategy, which was installed in the collective imagination of the players and that fueled a rivalry between its creators that still raises blisters today.
