Editorial Reviews

Review

David Craddock's Stay Awhile and Listen masterfullyretells the tale of the game development Camelot created by the founders ofBlizzard Entertainment. -Richard Garriott, creator of the Ultima series

Stay Awhile and Listen tells how passion, maxed-out credit cards andsleepless nights spawned a gaming phenomenon and unearths the game designsecrets that made Diablo an enduring classic. -Tristan Donovan,author of Replay: The History of Video Games

A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the storied history and development of Diabloand the early days of Blizzard Entertainment. -Dr. Ray Muzyka, co-founder ofBioWare
 
Stay Awhile and Listen flows almost like a documentary film. During the narrative parts, it's easy to imagine a group of young developers hunched in front of faintly glowing screens. During the quotations, you can picture the older and wiser industry veterans sitting in front of a camera and explaining those early days with smiles on their faces. -Slashdot.org
 
Craddock takes his time introducing each person, and by thetime he explains their contribution, I felt like I knew them as human beings,not as developers--what they were like as kids, where they came from, and whattheir aspirations were. -Venture Beat

Stay Awhile and Listen
is a rare and intriguing look into the people andexperiences behind some of my favorite video games of all time. -RandyPitchford, co-founder of Gearbox Software
