    Rodriguez and Garcia say their film is “the first in a documentary series on the full history of video games.” The film, which fan-funded through a Kickstarter campaign in 2013, explores this early history through interviews, archives and reflections by game industry legends: Nolan Bushnell, co-founder of Atari; David Crane, co-founder of Activision; Warren Robinett, creatore of Adventure, one of the world’s first RPG’s; Dona Bailey, co-creator of Centipede, one of the first games to attract a large female audience; and many more of the original engineers, developers, businesspeople and industry personalities whose work directly kicked off the global rise of gaming.

    World 1-1 deftly investigates the highs and lows of the intense birth of a mega-industry that continues to rise today. The film’s theatrical premiere on October 24th, 2014 launched a run of expo-related screenings continuing through Spring 2015; it is already enjoying rave reviews from fans and critics for its high-quality examination of what would become a beloved global phenomenon.
