Horrible
7 May 2015 | by gkgoten100See all my reviews

A bad documentary about people who believe they can make games innovative but fail miserably in doing so and blaming others. The developers and few journalists that are talked about and introduced are far from being nationally diverse as well. The use of people who can't even make games in a documentary about the indie scene is purely abysmal, let alone the fact that the majority of those interviewed all just talk about themselves like they are some kind of developer messiah and their work will change the industry as we know it. I will say the camera work was OK, given that there was barely any need for it because it is an interview style documentary. But regardless, the execution of who they used does not redeem this movie one bit
