Simply the Best: Interviews with Video Game Designers, Composers and Scofflaws


August 19, 2020

Book Details

Video games are not born, fully-formed, from a dark abyss. They are created by designers, writers, artists, sound engineers, and composers, only to be released by publishers into the world for critics and the general public to embrace or reject them. In Simply the Best: Interviews with Video Game Designers, Composers and Scofflaws, author, Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, interviews dozens of indie and professional designers who have worked on such classics as E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Fallout, and Leisure Suit Larry, in this delightful tome. Learn what older PC RPGs offered that modern RPGs don't. Revel in tales of how the Roland MT-32 Sound Module allowed composers to create music that really came alive instead of the mere PC speaker bleeps and bloops. Discover if Leisure Suit Larry is circumsized. All these knowledge nuggets can be yours within the very pages of this book. Interviewees include: Ernest Adams, AGD Iinteractive, Yoshitaka Amano, Bo Bennike, Eric Chahi, The Fat Man, Tom Hall, Steve Ince, Ben Isaac, Steven Kent, Brad King, Frank Klepacki, Chris Kohler, Alexander Leon, Al Lowe, Josh Mandel, Mark Minasi, Nick Montfort, Mustin, Neskimos, Scot Noel, George Oldziev, Mandi Paugh, Jeremy Soule, Trey Stokes, Bill Trotter, Feargus Urquhart, Matt Vancil, Jeff Vogel, Howard Scott Warshaw, Aaron Williams, Wolf, Xorlak, and Inon Zur.
