The game developing process. What goes into it? What are the stresses that one may endure? This documentary takes a fairly in depth look at the lives of 3 particular games being developed, and the personal lives of those creating it(Fez,Super Meat Boy and Braid). Focusing more on the positive and negative aspects of how the process effects the people involved is what draws you in. There is no acting, action, etc. just the real life drama that goes into deadlines, marketing, and all things aside from what code to put on what page. The presentation may not be for all viewers but it definitely is interesting to see where a person can snap, or reap the rewards of years of hard work even when others wrote them off as crazy. I was personally drawn into the inner conflicts that were shown to real feel the real life emotions. Must see for gamers, that is for sure, but also for a casual viewer, I believe that it is something interesting to see just what goes on day by day (they seem to keep hours like me). 6.4/10
