At GDC last month, there was a fantastic talk given by the game’s creators on how the arcade classic NBA Jam came to be. That talk is now online, and is definitely worth watching if you like video games, basketball and/or 90s haircuts.
For a fun time, watch this trailer for the upcoming NBA Playgrounds — out in May — and see how close they come to saying “NBA Jam” without actually saying “NBA Jam“.
Briefly: A former Midway Games employee is raising money on Kickstarter for a documentary called Insert Coin, a look at the studio in the ’90s. At the time, Midway was pumping out classic after classic — NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, Smash TV. Looks interesting!
