Interesting trip into the world of video games, seen by their independent designers. Probably more captivating for gamers themselves. But interesting anyway ------- Cette incursion dans le monde des jeux videos, vus par leurs créateurs indépendants est intéressante. Plus captivante sans doute pour les gamers eux-mêmes. Mais intéressante quand même.
The informational value of this documentary is relatively small, it is poorly shot and the soundtrack is horrible. Sure, we meet a lot of sympathetic guys working enthusiastically on their projects, and we get to know the hardship of their work; but I think some important facts are missing. E.g. if working on a game means to use every available media, why don't we hear something about the work with sounds?
Let me save you 103 minutes and sum up this useless, poorly shot info doc. Hey guys did you know that making things is difficult and can take awhile and there is no guarantee of success so it is stressful and when you work on things for years it can become a personal reflection of yourself and i guess that makes games art so we should respect the medium.
I've never been what would be called a 'video game person' but appreciate the art and creativity the game makers put into their creations. This quite marvelous documentary captures the sacrifices made to create these worlds and the possible futility of creating games that the public may reject. Worth the time watching just to see the genuine reactions the programmers have watching others experience their game.
