Hitman Absolution: Full Disclosure

HITMAN ABSOLUTION: FULL DISCLOSURE shows a side of game development that is rarely seen in such uncompromising and unrestricted detail. The app shines a light on more than 250 images and 25 videos that show the discarded concepts, abandoned ideas, early prototype videos and creative exploration that helped to craft HITMAN: ABSOLUTION. The majority of the content has never been seen outside of IO Interactive and is taken directly from the production folders by the development team, who provide an on-going narrative for each of the 40 individual sections.
I've always been the kind of person to seek out knowledge of the game creation process from teams around the world on different games. The Hitman series happens to be one of my favorite of all time so I knew I had to get this.
First off, the price is more that well worth it. I would have gladly paid 5 dollars knowing the kind of information contained and discussed in the app. The fluidity of swiping from section to section and popping in and out of photo galleries as well as videos is great. After I read the first few sections I had to go back and replay Absolution to accompany the reading.
I myself am a game designer, so it's awesome to see how the team went about fleshing out concepts like point shooting and the different iterations they went through over the development process.
If you're teetering on the edge of passing this up or buying it, do yourself a favor and go ahead and buy it. It's filled with great information on Absolution as well as interviews with the developers themselves. I'll definitely reference Full Disclosure when working on my own designs in the future.
I installed this on my iPad Air. The opening splash screen comes up. When I attempt to do anything else, like look at the TOC, the program crashes.
Kind of makes me think if I should buy any of the SW that this firm is selling at the App Store...
This is a great app if you like hitman and I don't know why you guys are expecting a game it's not. :/
