How Grand Theft Auto was first pitched

Original game design documents emerge

The original game design documents for the first Grand Theft Auto game have been posted on the internet.

We're going back 16 years here to 1995, a time when GTA was called Race 'n' Chase.


Mike Daily, graphics engine programmer on the game at the time, has now revealed a slightly worn document outlining the original GTA concept - everything from police to pedestrians.

If getting behind the scenes of game design is your thing, we posted similar documents outlining the original pitch for Bioshock last year. It was a two-parter.

Have a look at the GTA documents below.
