TETRIS: GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
:01 FIRST SECOND
(W/A/CA) Box Brown
It is, perhaps, the perfect video game. Simple yet addictive, Tetris delivers an irresistible, unending puzzle that has players hooked. Play it long enough and you’ll see those brightly colored geometric shapes everywhere.
Alexey Pajitnov had big ideas about games. In 1984, he created Tetris in his spare time while developing software for the Soviet government. Once Tetris emerged from behind the Iron Curtain, it was an instant hit. 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 game.
