The world had entered a new millennium. Eminem was at the top of everyone's mind November 2002 with 8 Mile and Lose Yourself. The world was ready for a new era of Mortal Kombat with Deadly Alliance. #MK30
October 1997. Candle In the Wind was the top song in the charts and the crowds were lining up to watch I Know What You Did Last Summer. We have entered the age of 3D graphics and Mortal Kombat 4 was going to change the game. #MK30

It was April '95, Bad Boys and A Goofy Movie were leading the box office and This Is How We Do It was the top song. Then Mortal Kombat 3 invaded arcades. Who were you maining and what were you listening to? #MK30
What better way to celebrate Mortal Kombat’s 30th than to check out @davidlcraddock's book LONG LIVE MORTAL KOMBAT. Over 600 pages telling the stories of
how we made the game plus so much more! Also includes a foreword by Mortal Kombat co-creator @therealsaibot. (1 of 2)
I do remember us making the decision to not darken the screen because Liu Kang was "pure of heart" or something.🤣
Looking back, I wish we did more by either...
- making victim's head explode
- making victim's body explode
- launching victim into the air, body parts rain downtwitter.com/tabmok99/statu…k
Its crazy seeing that first arcade test footage now, 30 years later. The test went great, but it was clear the game needed another fighter. So we went back to work, designing, capturing & programming the moves for Mortal Kombat’s 7th fighter, Lieutenant Sonya Blade.
For her LEG GRAB, we knew what we wanted but didn't clearly explain the entire sequence to Liz, the performance actor. So understandably she may have seemed a bit underwhelmed with the move. I still remember feeling a need to assure her it was going to turn out cool. :)
Liz was a great sport, super agile and able to perform the handstand flip over we needed. The move turned out to be one of the most iconic moves in all of Mortal Kombat. Imagine the RUSH we had seeing our move replicated on the big screen in the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie!
Recently @therealsaibot colored in his original Stryker sketch, revealing a look that resembled Bruce Lee's GAME OF DEATH costume. The idea was that Curtis was going undercover when he entered the tournament.
