Introduction



In the mid 1990s, a small company called DMA Design is struggling to release their multiplayer racing game Race'n'Chase while all kinds of management try to shut them down. A glitch causes the racers to be chased by the police and so the game was retooled, first as a cop game, but things are much more entertaining when you're the bad guy. So, in October 1997, Grand Theft Auto 1 was released on the PC and has the player go through six large levels in three expansive city maps committing crime either by themselves or for the local crime syndicate via missions.

Unsurprisingly, due to the difficulty of the game, the lack of a save feature and how if you fail a mission, it cannot be completed, this is a pretty hard game to format into an LP. However, due to a magical thing called a Dosbox modded with save states, I can ignore these problems completely. Well, I'll still fail missions, sometimes over and over again, but if I'm vigilant in my saving, I can complete every level perfectly. And there's plenty packed into the levels, secrets and weapons and bonuses, all the good stuff.

This does have a couple problems though; I can't have any music, but it means I can put in the absolutely excellent soundtrack whenever I please. If you know of any songs that I can add into the pool, any fantastic songs from later GTA games, then link them and you'll see them in a future video. And sometimes when I reload a state, or play the game normally, the audio can get a bit messed up, but there shouldn't be any problems.

And in April 1999, an expansion pack, GTA: London 1969, was released, which will also be covered. And, since I can get it working (more or less), we will also cover London 1961. Happy days.

SPOILERS ARE OKAY
