Editorial Reviews

Review

"Postmortems is a collection of writing both old and new documenting the evolution of design in multiplayer gaming, from text adventure to cutting-edge tech.  The challenges didn't just come from online gaming growing into a dominant force, but also from increased expectations and the shifting priorities of switching from dedicated fans to a more general audience.... vital reading for anyone with an interest in knowing how games of any sort come about." - Hardcore Gamer (hardcoregamer.com)

"A valuable compendium of insight and essays that has significant value for both developers and genre enthusiasts. The coverage on Ultima Online and Star Wars Galaxies make for compelling reading by fans of either titles or more general MMO followers... Koster gives form to the unicorn that so many of us have been chasing for a decade or more, and which always seems just out of reach." - MMORPG.com
