GDC classic game post-mortem talks now free to watch online

By Alex Donaldson, Wednesday, 23 March 2011 20:09 GMT

One of the highlights of GDC, the classic game post-mortem talks, have just been made available to watch online free of charge.

The talks cover the development of several industry-changing games, and include John Romero talking about the creation of DOOM, Mark Cerny on the creation of Marble Madness and even Toru Iwatani talking Pac-Man.

The GDC team have uploaded video and slides from a good chunk of the series to a free section of the GDC vault, which means, unlike other GDC talks, you don’t have to pay a penny to see them.

Take a look here.

GDC 2011

  • Epic reveals mind-blowing new Unreal Engine tech

    During a GDC behind-closed-doors session earlier today, Epic’s Mark Rein blew the lid off a new, next-gen focused version of Unreal 3. Yes, next-gen. And he was abundantly clear about it: this stuff won’t run on current consoles. Bar, you’ve just been raised.

  • GDC 2011 dates detailed

    This year’s event hasn’t even gone into overdrive yet, but GDC 2011 has already been given dates.


  • BlizzCon panels revealed

    Blizzard’s posted a list of all the BlizzCon panels for this year, and those lucky enough to get a ticket can look forward to seminars in Diablo III class design, StarCraft Lore and plenty more. Lots of good stuff there. The event takes place on October 10-11 at the Aneheim Convention Center in California.
