Blood, Sweat, and Pixels
I'm not at all a gamer but I listen to the Deadspin podcast "Deadcast" and this week the guest was a guy named Jason Schreier, the news editor of Kotaku, who recently wrote a book called Blood, Sweat, and Pixels and the discussion they had on how crazy the process is on how video games get made was really interesting to me. I'm considering buying the book.
Apparently it started with a chronicle of the Messy, True Story Behind the Making of Destiny that he wrote in 2015. The book covers 10 different video games and how they came to be. Has anyone heard of this? Or read it?
