Thanks to Chris Mayer for the heads up on this documentary, which should remind us of the days when frotting oneself up against a coin-op game machine wasn't yet considered retro-cool.

Chris Mayer was for a short time my Lead Programmer and avowed J----* Buffer.

* a former producer I dare not name, but one from whom his team members required protection (or "buffering"). Those who think they know who I'm talking about will have their suspicions confirmed if I refer to the Mysterious Incident of the Red Underpants Down the Side of the Sofa in the Lunchroom.

I saw that film at the Slamdance Festival in January, its a fantastic doc, made me proud to be a game designer. You should definetly check it out.

Another interesting note is the story has been optioned for a fictionalized version, which could be very funny.

I'd managed to actually forget J----* even existed, and then you go and mention the red undies... :p

Thanks for the recommendation, Patrick. I'll see if it's screening in Paris.

(btw great coverage of Slamdance game stuff for GD Magazine!)

Sorry for the uncomfortable flashback, Uncle Fuzzy. But a question remains: where is he now?

Some things are best left a mystery, I reckon...
