Dragon’s Lair 30th Anniversary Interview June 25, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

This month marks the 30th anniversary of the game Dragon’s Lair.  A pioneering development in the arcade space, Dragon’s Lair used an interactive laserdisc to display content, and the player would have to use the controls to steer the scene to its proper resolution.  The game used traditional hand-drawn animation directed by famed animator Don Bluth, who has made his mark in animation with films like The Secret of NiMH and my personal favorite of his movies Titan A.E.

30 years later, the guys at Traditional Animation has posted up an interview with game director Don Bluth,  In it, they discuss the history of the project, the Dragon’s Lair games and why its taken so long for Hollywood to make a Dragon’s Lair movie!
