Finish him, ARGonauts! Mortal Kombat co-creator John Tobias graces us with his presence to discuss the franchise he helped build into a pop culture sensation, as well as what went behind the development of the characters and lore we all love.
What were the main inspirations behind Mortal Kombat? How did John become friends with Ed Boon, Eugene Jarvis, and other all stars from Midway's past? What did John work on prior to Mortal Kombat? Where did the idea from Goro come from? We get into these questions, and more!
It's not just all Mortal Kombat, though! We also get into John's days after Midway with Studio Gigante and releasing Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus, plus his involvement in the upcoming documentary Insert Coin. There's even some discussion on the Star Wars fighting game John was working on that never saw the light of day.
We are partnered with Don't Feed The Gamers! Be sure to check them out for fan-focused gaming content.
