CD-i Book

Post by Devin » Sat Apr 03, 2010 2:28 pm

Just found a book all about CD-i. It's really quite an interesting read and takes stock of the early history of the format and also a few technical elements about terms used for this new 'interactive' medium. It also states how PIMA announced the agreement with Nintendo to use its game characters. Pretty much word for word as Bas has noted here. Also games that were announced but remain unrealised includes the Uninvited, Deja Vu and Sim City is also mentioned!

Hmm, what is the title of the book? I might be interested in reading it as I like stuff like this.
All the Pigs are all lined up. I give you all that you want. Take the skin and peel it back, doesn't it make you feel better?

Seconded. This is not the CD-i Designers Guide (or something like that, I forgot the exact title)?

Yes, but not those handbooks.

New Media seem to have commissioned it as an introduction to CD-i. Includes some interesting dates and the time of various events which brought us to 'interactive media'.
