Just in case you missed the Guitar Hero
reported here on Joystiq a week or two back, Gamasutra has now posted a tongue-in-cheek
postmortem on the squeezebox simulator. It's cheeky.
You'll learn not only "that accordion players get
all the girls" (with female players, of course, getting all the guys), but you'll also get a handle on some
detailed developer data such as the number of accordions broken during development (none) and the number set on fire
during the same period of time (twenty-three).
For those of you who'd rather learn the real history behind Accordion
's obvious inspiration, you
can check out the relevant Behind the Music feature on Guitar Hero
with its creators Harmonix and RedOctane
below. At least that'll give you a better idea of how many controllers from "a Japanese guitar-playing simulation
[presumably Guitar Freaks
]... ended up in an impromptu parking lot bonfire" before all was said and done.
(Hint: it's a number a lot closer to one hundred.) Glad the new controllers work.See
