Myst, X-Com: UFO Defense, Crystal Castles postmortems

The Game Developers Conference brings back the Class Games Postmortem series for the third year this March. Today they've revealed scheduled postmortems for oldies but goodies like Myst, X-COM: UFO Defense, Crystal Castles and Pinball Construction Set for GDC 2013, scheduled to take place on March 25-29 in San Francisco. 

The sessions for this year sound great. Robyn Miller, co-director of Myst, will delve into what was one of the biggest games of the 1990s. Crystal Castles, one of the legendary Atari arcade games, will have Franz Lanzinger showing off its secrets. Game making legend Bill Budge will show off an early example of an in-game editor for Pinball Construction Set. And we'll learn the early origins of lsat year's hit game X-COM: Enemy Unknown in a session on 1994 predecessor X-COM: UFO Defense.

I still have my original CD-ROM of Myst.
