Playing the Revolution
Playing the Revolution è una serie di documentari, realizzati dall’italianissima Junk Foods, sulla nascita e l’evoluzione dei videogames dai tempi dei primi pionieri fino alla generazione a 16-bit.
La serie si compone di 5 episodi da 60 minuti l’uno, ricchi di interessanti interviste ai padri fondatori dell’universo videoludico.
Nell’approfondimento, la presentazione ufficiale del documentario.
Before people became reliant on personal computers, internet and dvd’s; before Mortal
Kombat clones started invading our lives; before videogames turned into massive
productions like Hollywood blockbusters… There was the 8-bit generation.
A journey backward from the Spacewar milestone, to the rise of the 16-bit era.
A piece of human history that would have changed the way people approach game and
technology, and definitely their lives, forever.
What was behind the first time a young prankster Steve Jaruszek borrowed his first token
to play Defender?
And what happened when Toru Iwatani sat down at his local pizzeria with a slice-off pizza
in his front? Who did first envision Atari’s fall?
Games, arcades, technical breakthroughs, social climate under the lens of the actors who
took part in the process – as the millions of fans who tore their fingers on PacMan & Co.
We talk about history.
