GDC - Ms. Pac-Man dev talk (ARs Technica article)


Recommended Posts

This fascinating article from Ars Technica talks about the inception of Ms Pac-Man from the technical side of things.

Great pics of Crazy Otto concepts and fly-on-the-wall talk of chips, boards and the legal hammer bearing down on the imitative approach to creating the next arade hit.

 

Also goes into Diablo which, as a 'young' 20-year-old game, fits the neo-retro category.

And also makes me feel hella old.

 

Hope you enjoy
