OMG!I cannot believe video games were this diffcult to create back in the days.
 

 
watch the video below.



if you do not have 20 minutes.



summary of the video.


1. they did not have enough space on the arcade hard drive to make primal rage one boss.

20 staff members working on a budget of 2.5 million.

2. stop motion animation took about 5 to 7 month for one character. to go from concept art to been in the game.

3. characters costed about 100k to make.

15. the doll and art took time to remake and if they did not get it right. they had to do it all over which took a month.

4. they rushed it for testing in 1996 when it was not ready to be done yet.

6. hired hollywood motion capture stunt man and women to do the moves.


7. 1100 to 2000 frames per character took 1 year to do.

8. had to have sepicalized hard drive and data to house and store the game.


9. if artist did not nail 100% of the concept art to art to model doll for the stop motion animation they would have to do it over agian.

12.cartridges and cd roms such as ps1 and nintendo 64 could not handle primal rage 2 sequel.



16. atari higher ups wanted to get the game out before he was ready and buggy. so they did test models on the market.

9. Williams entertainment and midway bought out atari games from time warner. primal rage was mortal kombat competitor.

10. then midway played politics and did some fu*ked up sh*t.


11. fired alot of folks from atari games for no reason at all.

12. they had no interest in really releasing there games or working with them. they just wanted to buy out the company so they did not have any competition.

13. the staff that did stay and helped midway produced some of the 1996,1997 classics for midway asked if they could put mk chracters in priminal rage 2 since rage had sold out good merch in comic books,action figures,cd roms and games.

14. midway deind it. and midway cancel priminal rage 2.


and took alot of there ideas and fire them.

yeah i'm in awe of the developers from back in the arcade days.

it's not like today where you have hundreds/thousands of pages of documentation and tutorial videos pouring over every little detail of your game engine (unreal/unity/etc).

back in those days they had to make EVERYTHING from scratch. countless hours of r&d... just for ONE title.

oh it performs well and it's time to make a sequel? boom. start the whole process over from the beginning again.

i remember Ken Lobb mentioning how the k*ller Instinct team even made their own COMPILERS just for KI

wow! that is crazy. i guess now i am going to have so much more respect for old school video games from 1985 to 2006.

damn now i can understand why games were so high back in 1990 to 2006.

now i have not play video games in like 2 years. but this might just make me start playing them again.

realizing how good us video game fans have it now a days.

2. i did not know making video games were as diffcult as tv shows,movies nad tv commerical. sh*t even harder.

'Wha happened' is a good series that goes through games that flopped, many from the 90s & 00s and further back to E.T., too.

Explains why gaming was far superior back then but I don't know if Primal Rage justifies that...
