PIX'N LOVE #17: PHANTASY STAR

Florent Gorges, Nicolas Gilles, Cyril Denis, Nicolas Mattioni, Alain Huygues-Lacour, Cyril Drevet, Eric Cubizolle, Michaël Guarné, Régis Monterrin, Julien Annard, Jean-Marc Demoly, Stéphane Hersin



 

A year after the release of Dragon Quest , developed by Enix for the Famicom (1983), SEGA decided to fight back with Phantasy Star , as the company's answer to its greatest enemy. The creative approach adopted during its development follows well the policy of SEGA: to succeed by standing out. To do this, the composition of the team impresses, not by the number but by the grouping of talents that constitutes it, with personalities who have already officiated in the past such as Mr. Hayashida, creator of Alex Kidd, or future big names like Yuji Naka, one of the fathers of the future Sonic the Hedgehog . Between development secrets, technical constraints and artistic choices, Pix'n Love looks back at the genesis of this essential role-playing game, while delivering a multitude of anecdotes on many other subjects.


Did you know, for example, that Fairchild's mysterious Channel F was none other than the first programmable cartridge game console in history? Were you convinced that Volley-Ball on the NES was a 100% Nintendo project? Its inventor, Tomoshige Hashishita, lifts the veil on the true story of this software which managed to slip ahead of The Legend of Zelda in the Japanese charts of 1986!
