Prince of Persia, 1989, was a mind-blowing game to me. The movements were unbelievably smooth and realistic.
I knew it was based on SOMEBODY’s real moments. But I didn’t know it was his LITTLE BROTHER. He filmed his little brother doing parkour and frame by frame created Prince of Persia’s movements based off his little brother’s. There’s tons of film he took – this is just a small sample. I’m impressed.
[yes, it’s rotoscoping but also I think this is the first use of it in a home video game]
