THE MINDS BEHIND THE GAMES: INTERVIEWS WITH CULT AND CLASSIC VIDEO GAME DEVELOPERS

Patrick Hickey Jr., Brett Weiss (Foreword)



 

Featuring interviews with the creators of 36 popular video games--including Deus Ex, Night Trap, Mortal Kombat, Wasteland and NBA Jam--this book gives a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of some of the most influential and iconic (and sometimes forgotten) games of all time. Recounting endless hours of painstaking development, the challenges of working with mega publishers and the uncertainties of public reception, the interviewees reveal the creative processes that produced some of gaming's classic titles.
