Behind the Scenes: Sneak Peek

The above video is an exclusive excerpt from the feature length documentary Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler.

It picks up as Timothy McVey reaches the 36-hour mark in his quest to reach the highest score (1,000,000,000+ points) on the arcade game Nibbler and regain his title.

He doesn’t look too bad for having played so many hours, although according to the excerpt, his reflexes have slowed down.

Will Tim be successful? You’ll just have to watch the documentary to find out.

One thing is certain. This gameplay marathon only goes to show that crazy young gamers turn into crazy middle-aged gamers.

A Kickstarter campaign for the film is in progress.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
