Fluff Piece: Consolevania Documentary On Scottish Games Industry

Here's a rather excellent thing you probably didn't see yet.

We heart Consolevania. And sometimes they even mention PC games, which makes anything they do completely relevant to this blog. Phew, eh?

As a part of the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, evil PR man Brian Baglow (he's lovely, but it's very important we maintain that everyone in PR is evil) was asked to do "something" about the games industry in Scotland. His idea - to make a film about the business. Using his cunning, he roped in the Consolevania guys to create a 45 minute documentary, filmed over three days, visiting some of Scotland's games developers. And asking them questions like, "What's the longest word you know?"

At first glance it may seem to primarily be about people making games for mobile and Xbox Live, but look closer. They're making them on PCs, see? And some of them even mention that they make some games for PC sometimes. Outerlight! They made The Ship. Thank the baby Jeebus. See - there's no question this should be on RPS. Also, we love Consolevania best, and are posting it anyway, so screw you.

Engagingly titled Fluff Piece, you can watch it below, and pretend to your friends that this is the primary source for watching it so we get all the hits, or get your own copy to keep forever from here.
