Last night we went to a screening of this and a Q&A with the filmmakers. Surprisingly, I absolutely loved it. Each developer’s obsession and personal obstacles and passion for such a nuanced almost delicate niche in the video game industry were really compelling…considering we’re talking about stakes along the lines of will Super Meat Boy be featured on the XBox Marketplace on its release day or not?
But that’s not fair, is it, because really it’s a movie about what we create that helps us categorize and process our experiences and relate to each other and how far we’ll go down this rabbit hole in the pursuit of this.
Anyway, it’s a terrific documentary - if you get a chance to see it, you definitely should.
