"The market does not know what it wants... The market will respond to what you believe."Dino Dini discusses these lessons along with over 20 others at last month's GDC Europe, reviewing the creation of and success from his series of sports games from the '80s and '90s, including Kick Off and Player Manager. In this free session from GDC Vault, which continues GDC Europe's series of classic postmortems of seminal European video games, Dino Dini recalls his design choices and features for the multiple award-winning Kick Off, from frame rate and ball size to the viewing and shadow angles and his not attaching the ball to the player's feet. Other classic postmortems recently released for free on GDC Vault and well worth the look include GoldenEye: 007, Alone in the Dark, and Myst.
