Part One of Final Fantasy XIV Documentary Details Its Origins and Disastrous Launch

Marcus Stewart



Noclip, a YouTube channel focusing on crowd-funded video game documentaries, has produced an in-depth series looking at the development history Final Fantasy XIV.


This first of three installments gives a great look at the MMORPG's early history, particularly development on the 1.0 version of the game. Interviews with key designers speak about how Final Fantasy XI's design served as a blueprint, and how the development team responded to Final Fantasy XIV's initial backlash, leading to a new team coming in to completely overhaul the game into A Realm Reborn.  



In the past, Noclip has produced fascinating videos detailing the development of titles such as the new Doom, Rocket League, and The Witness. If you're interested in learning not just how games are made, but the personal stories behind the designers who craft them, the channel is well worth checking out. 


If you're interested in other gaming documentaries Gameumentary's Torchlight retrospective, Us and the Game Industry, and KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide are all very much worth watching.
