Classic Games Postmortems Returning to GDC
With this year’s Game Developers Conference set to take place from March 5-9 in San Francisco, some news is finally beginning to trickle down about the event.
The folks in charge of GDC have sent out a notification today that the popular Classic Games Postmortems series if making its return to this year’s show.
“The classic postmortems were first conceived as a special way to help celebrate the twenty-fifth edition of GDC last year, but after seeing its overwhelming success and due to popular demand, we decided to make it a permanent fixture at the conference, considering how many important and influential games we have yet to explore,” said Meggan Scavio, GDC general manager. “From the definitive survival horror and RPG experiences to the original farm simulation game to an arcade legend that ate quarters from every GDC attendee, we are confident that there will be a variety of fascinating lessons to be learned for everyone who comes to these sessions.”
The series will include postmortems of Alone in the Dark with designer Frédérick Raynal, Fallout with producer, lead programmer and designer Tim Cain, Gauntlet with creator Ed Logg and Harvest Moon with producer and co-designer Yasuhiro Wada.
GotGame will be on hand at this year’s GDC so stay tuned for more updates leading up to and including the week of the show.
