Few games like Mortal Kombat have been included in modern culture. About thirty years after the first game, quotes such as "Finish him" and "Fatality" are familiar even to non-players. Now, Ed Boone, one of its designers, has shown how to move along one of these lines, and Scorpio signs "Go Here!" Created: Built in Flight
Boone tweeted yesterday that it's been three decades since the first Mortal Kombat game was released. To celebrate the anniversary, he released a behind-the-scenes clip in which Boone and designer John Tobias are supervising Scorpio actor Daniel Pasina.

It's interesting to hear Boone play some frames in the game, which is something to keep in mind when working with early '90s hardware. He explained that the launch should be fast enough to surprise opponents, which means keeping the animation simple while using very few frames. Any move to respond to the victim, we borrowed from their existing moving frames. Boone says on Twitter that you can talk about reusing a victim's "knockdown" animation when hitting a spear.
"We also borrowed the victim's 'fatal dizziness' frames to show who they were. Reusing the current animation was one of the tricks we used to save memory, which 1991 was very limited.
