Welcome to Player Attack!
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has already been in the headlines this month, as it makes a glorious appearance on mobile devices. Today, it's back, as Rockstar digs out a "special treat" from the archives: The first of three interactive kiosks created ten years ago for London's Design Museum. Today's instalment focuses on Animation.
Back in 2002, GTA: Vice City was chosen as one of the year's "biggest contributions to design", alongside other "newfangled technology" as the Apple iPod.
Part of the nomination and award celebrations saw the creation of these special interactive kiosks for Vice City - focussing on Animation, Sound and City Design - so Museum visitors could get a special behind-the-scenes look at how the game had been created.
Rockstar Games compiled a bunch of rare footage and sketches, including:
Many of these files and images have not been seen since the original exhibition, unveiled again now as part of the Vice City 10th anniversary festivities. Stay tuned for Parts Two and Three "quite soon", according to R*.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
