Rockstar goes behind the scenes of Vice City's animation, sound and design

Rockstar Games is releasing a three-part series of behind-the-scenes videos and slideshows that the developer produced a decade ago to showcase Grand Theft Auto: Vice City's animation, sound and city design, according to a post on the developer's blog.

The first in the series, which Rockstar created in 2002 when London's Design Museum honored the open-world game, focuses on motion capture, character progression from concept art to the in-game polygons and the animations of Tommy Vercetti, the game's protagonist voiced by Ray Liotta. The two remaining parts will be released "quite soon," according to the blog post.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary released recently on iOS and Android. You can check out a preview of the game in a recent episode of Polygon's iOS Watch List.
