How do game developers work? What torments them? What are the pros and cons? Well, the best part about this documentary is when the developers talk about their pains. Personally, I love when you see somebody's pains and the real grit they have to go through in order to get something done. I also liked to see the differences explained between working on a major game where 1000 people are involved and the indies, where you have 1-10 people involved. The bad bit about this is having to sift through tediousness; the filmmakers should have made the film quicker with more pep in its step. After a third into the film, I almost lost consciousness. In the end, it's only interesting to gamers due to how slow it is, which is bad. Better editing could maybe have changed that.
