Tonight I had the pleasure of watching this documentary about the trials and tribulations of a few independent video game creators. I gave this documentary a 5 out of 5. It was very well done and managed to give a great deal of insight into the stressful issues involved in creating a unique game. I appreciate that the focus was centered around the people and not just the technology and code. This made the story relatable to a wider audience of people that otherwise might not have sat through the entire film.
I’ve learned that independent game makers and song writers are not all that different. I like to think that the majority of creators share similar experiences and emotions regardless of their chosen medium. However, I can’t speak for everyone. We’re all different and have our own opinions and views. That being said, it’s time for me to go to sleep. I have to be showered and ready to teach class in the early AM.
