Interesting presentation, and memories!  ;D

At GDC 2016, Provinciano elaborated on exactly how he did it, and in the process shed light on how he reduced memory usage down to 4MB, increased performance to run on a 486 PC, reduced disk space to fit on a single 1.44MB floppy, and finally ported the game to MS-DOS itself.

The other video/talks referenced in the video are also interesting.

Watching and enjoying!

Note for viewers: I think this video is really going to be of interest only to coders.
