  1. CBC TV have recently launched a documentary series "The Artists is the story of the creators that were at the forefront of the early video game revolution. It explores the first three decades of video game history." It may only be available in Canada, but maybe worth a try in the US. Someone tried it unsuccessfully in the UK. https://watch.cbc.ca/season/the-artists/season-1/6ec08750-b8fd-4841-9d62-5d05760af9be
  2. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has made a brief documentary on the early years of Electronic Arts. https://watch.cbc.ca/media/the-artists/season-1/episode-1/38e815a-00e57886a9e EDIT: This is the first of ten episodes about the history of videogames; see: http://whoaretheartists.com
  3. The poster for the upcoming Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution documentary film is now ready, and shown below. When the Website is ready, I'll post again, and also once distribution details for this year are finalized. The film, which is based on the Vintage Games series of books by me and Matt Barton (we're also writers and producers on the film), covers the history of videogames from the perspective of those who made it happen. Those interviewed include Nolan Bushnell, John Romero, Todd Howard, Daniel Murray, Darion Lowenstein, Eric Lindstrom, David Crane, and many, many more. The narrator is Cain Devore. The film also has a Facebook and Google+ presence, although Armchair Arcade is still a great place to find out new details (in fact, here's the same thing as a blog post there so you can see the PDF).
  4. Atari: Game Over (film documentary)... ...what a great/awesome film! After trying to watch it for free via the Xbox Video website (after downloading and installing the latest bloatware version of Microsoft Silverlight, which it demanded I have in order to watch the video), the video never played back and seemed to be in buffer mode/black screen infinitely.....I finally gave up and just paid the $17.99 Canadian dollars to Apple's iTunes for the high def version to download and install on my MacBook, and it played back perfectly (thank you Apple iTunes and screw you MIcrosoft Xbox Video website/Microsoft Silverlight extension). Anyways, the film documentary was superb! So thank you Xbox Originals...I will now be deleting that Silverlight junk off my MacBook's harddrive.

  8. Hello, on kickstarter there is our new documentary and this time it's about Atari. I'm sure you can be really interested! This is a short description: "Before Google, Yahoo and even Apple, before the Silicon Valley cliché of informal dress code, skateboards running the corridors and wild creativity became commonplace, one company embodied the digital economy lifestyle and business style: the one firm coming out of the Age of Aquarius was Atari. The story of Atari is two-thirds the story of Nolan Bushnell, founder and visionary, and one-third the first and probably biggest boom and bust of the new economy some 20 years before the new economy even existed. Atari was showing that technology is cool, way before the personal computer revolution took place and they were reaching out to an ever-growing audience with something that is still cool today: video games. Atari literally introduced the digital world to the mass consciousness. Nolan Bushnell and Atari have a huge collection of firsts: the first successful video game company, the first coin-op video game ever, the first general purpose console to win the market, the first marriage between video games and movie industry in the history of entertainment, the fastest growing company in history, the biggest industry crash ever, the weirdest anecdotes in Silicon Valley, the coolest brand on the planet… Atari is a story to be told for two main reasons: it is pure fun and it is impressively educational." You can read a full description of this project on the kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744798558/easy-to-learn-hard-to-master-the-fate-of-atari Thanks! Bruno
