The TRON design documents.

August 12th, 2008

I came across this fascinating collection of documents last night while digging around some of the less-travelled corners of the internet, searching for specs and background on the TRON cabinet I’m restoring.

This following bit, from Dave Nutting’s response after attending the TRON design meeting, is particularly wonderful, and shows how little things in the game industry have really changed:

(by the way, Bill is Bill Adams, designer and developer of the game, and George is George Gomez, visual designer, and the guy responsible for the look of the cabinet)

Anyway, here are the goods. The design documents, outlining the seven (!) mini-games and basic gameplay features, a couple Disney memos regarding assets, and Dave Nutting’s followup mail about the game to Dave Marofske, then President of Midway.

TRON Design Document: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]

…or just download the whole collection.
