Classic arcade game to be dissected in San Francisco this year

The organisers of Game Developers Conference 2014 have announced that the subject of this year's Classic Game Postmortem will be Robotron 2084.

Eugene Jarvis, creator of the popular arcade title, will host the session, discussing the game's origins and the lessons he learned from its spiritual predecessor Defender.

The session will take place during this year's GDC, which will once again be held in San Francisco and run from March 17th to 22nd.

GDC has already announced that it will be running its first studio-based postmortem this year, looking at the legacy of iconic point-and-click creators LucasArts.
