BLINDALLEY?
In the US publication The Journal of Computer Games Design, Chris Crawford (designer of Balance of Power and Guns and But.
ter, amongst others) argues that, from the point of view of the games designer, CD could be a blind alley.
First, he points out, the access time is very slow - anyone who's played Dragon's Lair in the arcades will remember the blank
screens as the disk frantically locates and loads the next sequence. Then there's the data itself - all 550Mbytes of it. How do
you fill all that space? And how much will the development cost? Most important of all, argues Chris, what do you DO with the
data once you've got it? What about the algorithms that will manipulate it? To emphasise the benefits of what is only really a
storage device at the expense of processing power is surety dangerous.
All this is true, but it doesn't have to be. Hardware manufacturers must not get carried away with the possibilities of vast data
storage while forgetting about processing power. CD is an enormous step forward, but let's have more ingenuity on the process-
ing side, more people like Flair Technology and the Amiga development team. When people like that get going on CD projects,
the games world will really start spinning...and they ARE getting going - as you'll see in the next few issues of ACE
