Box Brown ↠ 5 characters

And outright theftIn this graphic novel New York Times–bestselling author Box Brown untangles this complex history and delves deep into the role games play in art culture and commerce For the first time and in unparalleled detail Tetris The Games People Play tells the true story of the world’s most popular video ga. I m convinced there s a really interesting story in here but I got really bogged down in who owned which rights to which versions of Tetris Alexey who invented Tetris seems like a great guy who was willing to give up financial reward to see this great thing he made flourish That s pretty inspiring He made this thing that was so good that it HAD to be shared with the world even if it meant that he wouldn t get rich off it while other people didBut as a book there s just a lot of rights and contracts and maneuvering and I didn t find those parts of the story to be high interest It seemed to be about the business of Tetris than the game or games in general and a little bit about Nintendo history which has been covered pretty thoroughly in a number of other titlesI like Box Brown s work a lot and I appreciate that he took on this topic For me it just didn t uite hit the sweet spot

    Box Brown came onto my radar when he released his graphic novel treatment about the life of Andre The Giant  While I’ve yet to read it the critical acclaim he received for his work at the time made me want to seek out his other writings  Unfortunately Box Brown along with several other things seemed to have moved to that corner of my mind covered in cobwebs until this weekend when I spotted his follow up to the Andre book Tetris The Ga
