Post-Mortems

I've gotten really carried away with the idea of doing an 8-bit (or retro) post-mortem site, I think theres still lots to be learnt from hearing what others did in the past, and it might even inspire others to do more in the future! Who knows! I've also registered post-mortems.com although it just points here just now.

So to this end, I've started doing a Blood Money post-mortem, although unlike modern ones its not really a what went right or what went wrong document, but more a what did I do and why presentation. I do give public presentations every now and then so speaking through this on my own at home is gonna be really weird. I might see if anyone at work wants to listen to it just so I can get an audience and someone to speak at!

These things usually last an hour, but I think I'll be lucky if its lasts 15-20 min, but thats probably okay.

Another oddity is that your used to getting some questions, but at home you won't get any! The more I think about it the more I really want to have someone -anyone! to speak at.

.............Anyone able to travel to Dundee? :)

I'd be up for it Mike,

I could do one for Lemmings, Lemmings 2, and many others....

It might be the sort of thing we could get Abertay interested in.

Oliver might do one for Goldeneye!

Yeah, Abertay (our local university) may well be up for this, and it would be a good way to get an audience that’s actually interested in the subject (as they have lots of students on games programming courses.)

What I need to do is get some video of Blood Money playing, and add it to the PowerPoint to make it a little more interesting.

Sorry, I didn't work on GoldenEye but I might be able to drum something up from another project. Maybe something on SNES?

BTW: There's a pretty good Golden Eye post-mortem here: http://www.zoonami.com/briefing/2004-09-02.php
