Great storytelling about the artist's struggle in video game
Telling the story of how to make a game by yourself by successful creators, and the life and problems that incur working without the financial support and security that a big company offers but also without the creative oppression so common in the mass media industry. Is especially commendable for non-gamer people and even game-haters that say things like "videogames are entertainment, not art nor beautiful": here you can see with your very eyes the same struggle that a painter, or a filmmaker has when its out of budget, out of time, etc... Very well made and well presented, almost empathic documentary. 7 of 10
