Veteran game developer Naughty Dog has given us uncountable gaming experiences since they began over 30 years ago. This book will make you want to go back and replay all of their skilfully crafted games all over again.
It provides a history of the studio from their beginnings and through each series individually, from Crash Bandicoot to Jak & Daxter to Uncharted and their Magnum Opus - the Last of Us. There is also a large collection of concept artwork showcasing how their games progress from the developmental stages to their final, impressive creations.
It reveals the importance of Crash Bandicoot to the developer, without whom many ideas may not have come about. Naughty Dog’s history is storied and their games have all affected each other in some way or the other. For instance, the relationship between Jak and Daxter heavily influenced the contrasting personalities of Joel and Ellie in the Last of Us.
A must own book for fans who have enjoyed and appreciated the quality of Naughty Dog games.
