Ultima Online at 20: Classic Game Postmortem (GDC)


This session was for the main Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in 2018, celebrating UO’s 20th anniversary the previous September. (For an earlier classic postmortem, see the one done at GDC Online in Austin five years earlier). Unlike the other, this one does have development takeaways, some discussion of the game’s influence, and so on, much of it still very relevant today.
