"All Your Base Are Belong To Us" Book Launches Today
It’s been fifty years since the launch of the first video game and since this launch, the video game industry has slowly morphed into a pop-culture juggernaut. More than $20 billion has been made in American sales and more than 68% of the world’s population has been hooked on video games.
In this new book written by Harold Goldberg (a former editor-in-chief of Sony Computer Entertainment and a widely syndicated and known gaming columnist), Goldberg uses his three years of research and the more than 200 interviews to illustrate gaming’s rise to the top of the pop-culture pyramid.
The book explains the evolution of gaming from Tennis for Two to the 3D technology and holographic home consoles. The book also includes interviews with icons in the gaming industry such as Will Wright (the creator of The Sims) and Grand Theft Auto's Houser Brothers. The book will highlight all the heavy hitters in the industry, but will also highlight the lesser known stories such as:
- The extremely shy executive, Sam Houser, explains his initial struggle to get into the gaming world.
- An in-depth look at how casual gaming came to be. PopCap Games co-founder James Kapulka reveals his “Mom test” for online games by using his mother’s patience with various platforms as a production litmus test.
All Your Base Are Belong To Us explores the genius behind the gaming industry and how it holds a mirror to the modern culture. If you’re interested in purchasing this book, you can buy it here.
