Tony Warriner, Martin Mulrooney
From one of the makers of the highly acclaimed Lure of the Temptress and Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse (and everything in between) comes a brand-new book of epic proportions.
Revolution: The Quest for Game Development Greatness charts the journey of celebrated adventure game developer Revolution Software. From its inception in the early 1990s right through to the release of Broken Sword 5 in 2013, this book details every project – both released and cancelled – that the studio undertook during this time. Constantly buffeted by outside forces, Revolution doggedly pursued its goal to produce the fi nest narrative games. Amidst a multitude of disasters and corporate malice, the developer somehow created Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars, probably the fi nest European adventure game ever written. The story of Revolution is told with warmth and wit by Revolution co-founder (and the studio’s very first employee) Tony Warriner, who kept a detailed log of the company’s progress over the years. Fans of the games – as well as those looking to glean nuggets of development wisdom – will be enthralled by this insider tell-all account, which also includes a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes photographs and images from the studio archives.
