Insert Coin Drops

Cargo Films announces you can now press play on Insert Coin, their new documentary on Midway Games. Word is: "Insert Coin takes viewers back to the early days of the groundbreaking studio, famous for legendary titles like Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam, and Narc." As noted on the Insert Coin Website the movie can be streamed online through Alamo On Demand and Virtual Cinemas. Here's the previously released Insert Coin Trailer and some details:
Director Joshua Tsui has crafted Insert Coin as a love letter, time machine, and insider’s look at a studio that created pop culture giants that would fundamentally change how we played video games. The early 90s were like the Wild West era of the gaming industry, and no studio represented that ethos more than Midway Games with its wildly controversial (and hugely successful) titles like Mortal Kombat, a game that thrilled players and shocked parental advisory groups across the globe with its over the top violence and colorful cast.

Tsui was there when it all went down, having worked on the Mortal Kombat franchise and even lent his face to Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat IV. Insert Coin features interviews with past Midway team members, including Eugene Jarvis (Defender and Robotron: 2084), Mark Turmell (SmashTV, NBA Jam, NFL Blitz), John Tobias (co-creator Mortal Kombat series), George Petro (NARC, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Revolution X), and others. Also prominently featured are industry insiders Carly Kucerek (Coin-Operated Americans) and novelist and screenwriter Ernest Cline (Ready Player One, Armada).

I was a backer on this project. It is YEARS overdue (many similar documentaries have crowdfunded, produced and released in the time this has been in development) and so far, all backers got was an early screener version. This is out for the public to pay to see and backers don't have access to the final release yet. Just wow, what a mess this campaign has been.
