In a few weeks, Square's breakthrough role-playing game Final Fantasy 7 turns 20 in Japan. Later this year, it'll do the same in North America, then in Europe and elsewhere.
To look back, Polygon recently put together two special projects.
First, we tracked down 35 people who had ties to the game's development and asked them what it was like behind the scenes. Months of transcribing, cutting and pasting later, and we came up with a retrospective feature: Final Fantasy 7: An oral history.
Second, we teamed up with American University's Game Lab and the JoLT Initiative, funded by Knight Foundation, to develop a trivia game based on those interviews. Check it out to the right to test your knowledge of the game's development, lore and culture.
