The Skinny

Aptly demonstrates just how much they are willing to sacrifice to that end, bearing hardship and putting lives on pause to reach that final product of a completed game.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Compelling from start to finish, the movie is a real eye-opener for the uninitiated as it cogently makes the argument that video games deserve to be taken as seriously as movies, novels, paintings and more esteemed artistic disciplines.

Watching [a programmer] reboot a computer at a trade show over and over again was hardly what I'd call stirring cinema.

The film becomes a cheerleader for its subjects, which limits its ability to understand them.

Like punk rock or alternative comedy, it's a DIY pursuit that pits go-it-alone types against an industry machine, often breeding exciting but intensely idiosyncratic art in the process.

Even if you are "pursuing your dreams," at the end of the day, work is work. It may be more exciting and different than your average 9-5 cubicle life, it is still a job with deadlines, pressure, and stress.

The struggles these guys face getting their games done are monumental, and makes for some really tense, anxious stuff.

A remarkable statement about a modern paperless product with paperless funding, paperless sales and paperless enjoyment. However, the exposure of the artists and the hovering threat of failure will never change.
