This book reveals more secrets about the history of Japanese games than ever before, with 36 interviewees and exclusive archive photos. Konami's secret games console, the origin of Game Arts and Quintet, unusual events at Telenet, stories on Falcom, politics behind Enix's game programming contests, a tour of the Love-de-Lic and WARP offices (with layout sketches).
Nearly 400 pages and over 30 interviews, with exclusive content on the history of Japanese games. The origins of Hudson, Masaya's epic robot sagas, Nintendo's funding of a PlayStation RTS, detailed history of Westone Entertainment, and a diverse range of unreleased games. Includes exclusive office layout maps, design documents, and archive photos. In a world first - something no other journalist has dared examine - there's candid discussion on the involvement of Japan's yakuza in the industry.
Yanked from routine army duty to serve as an interpreter at Nuremberg, Sebastian Reinhardt, a young German-American, seems fated to be intimately involved with the lives and deaths of others. In hearing the stories of the infamous Nazi killers and war makers, he encounters not only the towering figures of that dark history — among them Albert Speer, Hermann Goering, and the untried shadow of Adolf Hitler — but also those from his own dark history as the lives of his ancestors become vitally relevant.
