Lessons from Game Design – Will Wright
Computer History Museum – November 20, 2003
Will Wright has become one of the most successful designers of interactive entertainment in the world. He began working on what would become SimCity—The City Simulator in 1985. Using a complex technique, he found a way to bring realistic simulations to desktop PCs. Previously simulations of this sort were only available to the military, scientists and academicians. However, using an easy to use graphic interface, the world of simulations opened up to consumers. Wright co-founded Maxis (now part of Electronic Arts) with Jeff Braun in 1987.
