Are you ready for some education? I loved The Making of Karateka. I feel that it’s the most important evolution of the collection/remaster format made to date. In that game, it took a title that many newcomers would otherwise try out and move on from, and gave it a lot of appreciable depth by giving context through interviews, design documents, and other behind-the-scenes stuff.

At this point, it wouldn’t matter to me what topic Digital Eclipse picked because they provide such tantalizing insight into their topics that it tickles the part of my brain that is hungry to dig into video gaming’s past. That is to say, most of my brain, as it’s been trained since childhood to retain this information.

In fact, I have no attachment to Jeff Minter aside from the respect I have for his career. His contribution to the video game medium has stretched back to the 1980s, when he started programming games for early home computers. He’s perhaps best known for 1994’s Tempest 2000, but his influence goes beyond that, as you’ll soon no doubt be able to learn.

Llamasoft: The Jeff Minter Story will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC on March 13, 2024.
