My friend is (finally) distributing his documentary on Friday (and it should be on Netflix within a few months). It's about the rise and fall of a video arcade in NJ, and features interviews with practically everyone ever associated with arcade games (including the guys from King of Kong). In any case, it was an incredibly long labour of love, and I have yet to see more than 20 minutes of it - but, I'm still excited to see the final product.

(As for the I Made That aspect - I did a bunch of graphics (yes, including the amazing lower thirds(!), and helped with a tiny bit of editing).

yeah, he hired one of the original Garbage Pail Kids artists to make the cover, as well as a bunch of custom garbage pail kid cards for all the people that donated to the Kickstarter campaign.

They should serve limited edition beer and give away free fedoras to anyone who spends more than $10 per gaming session.

It's on GOG: http://www.gog.com/movie/the_king_of_arcades, but I don't think it's still on Netflix (it was, for a few months). You can contact the director directly and inquire if it's streaming anywhere: https://www.facebook.com/TheKingofArcades/?fref=ts
