TCW Podcast Episode 057 - Foundation of the Japanese Video Arcade Game Industry
We go over the games, companies, and events that lead to the foundation of the Japanese Video Arcade Game Industry. We extensively cover breakout, and how the cloning of that game lead to the start of many companies that would come to power during the 90's. With Space Invaders, we see a full blown encouragement of smaller manufactures to make enough games to meet demand. Finally with Galaxian, and Head On we see the introduction of sprite technology that allows each of these smaller companies to stand on their own.
