    I read a book about this, and from what I remember, the reason Miyamoto was put in charge of the project was basically that Nintendo of America needed a new game by last week and Nintendo of Japan had no one else to spare. They were basically like "well, everyone who actually has experience is super busy, and we can't take them off of their projects. But we have an intern who has some good ideas, and hey, better than nothing, right?"

    I was working the register at a store near where I live and a few times I thought I had just sold some stuff to Reggie, but I didn't think it could be true. One day I saw him come in and as he was walking up to the register I finally worked up enough courage to ask him: "are you... Reggie?" And he smiled and responded: "that's me." It was surreal.

    fun fact: Shigeru Miyamoto was presented with the opportunity to put a patent on jumping in video games since Donkey Kong was the first game which featured the player being able to jump. Miyamoto thankfully decided against patenting it because he knew that would be horrible for other video game developers.

      @Dovydas S. Mainly from Game Over by David Sheff. Probably the best book of Nintendo history you'll ever read. Written in the early 90's and has lots of anecdotes from the early days of Nintendo when memories were still fresh
      It's out of print, but absolutely worth reading anyway you can.

    There's one more fun thing to this story.
    After the game became a success the other programmers wanted some of that sweet money. But Miyamoto grabbed it all, ran up to the roof, yelled "I am the Donkey CEO now!" and summoned fireballs that burned down the building.

    DK is a marvel of programming. So many little details that make it look nice, for example how the barrels falls, how they bounce when they land falling from a girder. And then the extremely challenging, frustrating and yet satisfying gameplay.

    Donkey Kong for Gameboy is an amazing game that I didn't expect to be good. I recognized the name so I asked for it. I remember my mom got it for me while I was recovering from surgery one time. We don't really do gifts outside of birthdays and Christmas so it stuck out to me. I wasn't expecting such an amazing puzzle platformer title. If you've played the Mini Mario games that is basically the first game in the series with similar gameplay.

      @Jesserror I mean, Bobby Kottick still runs Activision-Blizzard even though he not only does nothing about all the bullying and sexual harrasment that happens there, but actively hides it and participates in it himself. He hired a woman (after media started talking about the mistreatment of women there) as a co-leader, who left after realizing she was paid less than her male co-leader. He gives himself so many millions in bonuses (on top of his salary) that even the investors started to be against it. Not to mention people like Harvey Weinstein. The idea that horrible people who keep making money get fired is pretty idealistic. That being said though Miyamoto does seems like a genuinly good person.

      History Channel has the Toys that Made America and this season did an episode on early video games. They have one coming up that is going to focus on video games after the crash in '83 that I'm fairly certain is going to focus on Nintendo, Sega, and Sony and is probably going to be the season finale. I know it's not Dunkey, but it's something and is a really interesting.

      Check out jeremy parish's nes works or famicom works series, he does very in depth retrospectives on each game released for the nes with a focus on their history/creation and impact. Also has series for game boy, snes, virtual boy and a couple other shorter ones

    Dunkey is very corageous finally giving a biographic documentary series of his origin story.

    This game is ALMOST the best, completely factual overview of the history and development of Donkey Kong I've ever seen, and I'm not making that up.

    Donkey Kong '94 is an amazing game though, Mario takes all the athletics from Mario 64 and brings it back to the construction yard. Still dies to fall damage.

    the gameboy game is actually the biggest game I have for the classic gameboy, it feels bigger than pokemon gold/silver. there are sooooo many levels and ways of interaction with the scenery.
    yeah I had 99 lives because I rock and never made it past the final level...

    the funny thing about the ending is that it seems like a joke, but gameboy donkey kong is actually an insanely good game & still probably one of the best 2d platformers nintendo has ever made.
