Grand Theft Auto is an open world action-adventure video game developed by DMA Design (now Rockstar North) and published by BMG Interactive. The game allows the player to take on the role of a criminal who can roam freely around a big city. Players are able to choose to play as eight characters in the game, four male and four female: Travis, Troy, Bubba, Kivlov, Ulrika, Katie, Divine, and Mikki (the PlayStation version only lets players choose the four male characters, however).
The game takes place in 1997 in three primary settings, all of which are modelled on real locales: Liberty City is based on New York City, Vice City is based on Miami, and San Andreas is based on regions of California and Nevada. All three suffer from rampant crime and corruption, with constant feuding between the local crime syndicates, random acts of violence from street gangs, organised thievery and murder, and corrupt city officials and police officers. Various missions are set for completion, such as bank robberies, assassinations, and other crimes.
Grand Theft Auto was released in October 1997 for DOS and Microsoft Windows, and on 14 December 1997 for the PlayStation. It is the first title in the Grand Theft Auto series, a series that has sold more than 125 million units, as of December 2012. The game was originally intended to be named Race 'n' Chase and was nearly cancelled due to production issues.
