Devs Play

I’m so happy that a second season of Double Fine’s Devs Play series is currently happening, and the four episodes so far have all been great. I’d say the two episodes with Patrice Désilets (playing Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Assassin’s Creed II) are especially interesting, because you get to hear about a lot of the design thinking behind those games – the episodes with Ted Price (Spyro and Ratchet & Clank) are more about trivia relating to the games. I’m very much looking forward to the next episode, which will feature Media Molecule playing and discussing LittleBigPlanet. And if you missed it, you absolutely have to watch the 10-part episode from season 1 featuring John Romero playing/discussing Doom – it’s a fascinating masterclass in game design.
