Your Honor
22 April 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Actually it is "For Honor" ... which is a game that came out some time ago. And here we get one creative mind behind it all and his journey. So this is quite specific and might not interest too many people. There are so many documentaries out there, you'd be forgiven only choosing the ones you really care about or which are "broader".

Having said that, the individual in Question is quite some character. And there is more here than just how he helped make one of the online games to look out for in the last couple of years. There is struggle, there is hurdles and there is hardship too. So this is not just sunshine and giggles all along. But it's also not just some tedious look into how to make a game. It is a mix of things and once you start watching it, you might find yourself more than interested in what is going on ... and stay and really root for this man ... for better or worse
