I’ve often idly remarked that it’d be lovely (by way of fascinating) if someone made a documentary, or a even documentary series, about some of the more unusual aspects of British game development. Headlight Pictures have gone and done precisely that. Crunchtime, a three-part series which which will first air on Sunday 27th, at 7:25am, on Channel 4, examines the Dare To Be Digital competition run by the University of Abertay, Dundee. It continues across two more weekends, detailing the various dramas which face the student teams in their quest to develop splendid videogames. It ends, of course, in actual crunchtime.
Obviously this’ll turn up in 4oD later on, too, but people tuning in will definitely help future game documentary exploits! Logo image thanks to Craig Hastings / Headlight Pictures.
