This is a show about videogames, the people who play them and the people who make them. Each episode, a guest on the show talks about the games that have shaped their life in one way or another. Games that have inspired them, games that forged connections with others & games that have soothed wounds. Checkpoints!
My guests today are Andrew Seklir and Tim Kinzy, the directors and producers of the newly released videogame documentary Man vs. Snake.
We talk about their videogame history of course, from Sears Pong machines and the excitement of New York Bodegas through to virtual reality via side stories into Top Cat style arcade hacking and their worst rage quits.
We talk a lot about the movie too, from it's inception during a high score battle in the editing suite of Battlerstar Galactica through the recent wave of interest it's spawned in the long forgotten Nibbler.
What the fuck is Nibbler?
