GR+ Live: Meet the mind behind Star Wars Masters of Teras Kasi

Craig Rundels has been a working artist in video games for 20 years. Today he makes guitars and works for Sperasoft, a company providing art and support on games like Dragon Age and FIFA. Back in the day, though, Rundels was the lead artist and designer on the most infamous Star Wars game ever made: Masters of Teras Kasi. That's the fighting game where a Gamorrean Guard can beat up Darth Vader.

He joined GR+ Live for an interview looking back on Masters of Teras Kasi, his time at Midway and at Retro Studios during its Gamecube heyday, and a career striding wildly different eras of gaming.
