L.A. Noire Developer Team Bondi Under a Microscope

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Reader, if you have not registered with Gamesindustry.biz you probably should because a recent article posted there is required reading if you’ve ever wondered about what goes on during a game’s development.

This feature I found particularly interesting because I thoroughly enjoyed the game in question: L.A. Noire.

Developed by Australian developer, Team Bondi, leaked emails from the company and insider interviews with unnamed people that worked on the project offer a glimpse into (the apparent) development hell that produced L.A. Noire.
