About the Book

Featuring interviews with the creators of 37 popular video games–including SOCOM, Shadow of the Colossus, Tekken Tag Tournament and Sly Cooper, this book gives a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of some of the most influential and iconic (and sometimes forgotten) games of the original PlayStation 2 era. Recounting endless hours of painstaking development, the challenges of working with mega publishers and the uncertainties of public reception, the interviewees reveal the creative processes that produced some of gaming’s classic titles.
