Press Reset

Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry

The natural continuation of Jason Schreier’s bestselling book, PRESS RESET examines the volatility of the video game industry and the resilience of the people who work in it.

The business of videogames is both a prestige industry and a very opaque one. Based on dozens of firsthand interviews and covering the development of landmark games including Bioshock: Infinite, Epic Mickey, Dead Space, and more through development and through the studios’ shocking closures, this book will tell the stories of how real people are affected by game studio shutdowns — and how they recover.

Jason Schreier has made a name for himself as gaming’s preeminent investigative journalist. In PRESS RESET, through countless of insider interviews that cover hostile takeovers, abusive bosses, corporate drama, bounced checks, and that one time the Boston Red Sox’s Curt Schilling decided he was going to lead a game studio that would take out World of Warcraft, Schreier covers not only why video games are so hard to make-he explores why it’s so hard to make a living making games in the first place.
