World 1-1 New Kickstarter Documentary Series on History of Video Games

Daryl Rodriguez and Jeanette Garcia have begun a Kickstarter campaign for World 1-1, a documentary series on the history of video games.

The first chapter will focus on Atari and how they created a new industry. It focuses on the business deals, the personalities of the pioneers, and the creations of the engineers. This documentary will be a combination of interviews, archival footage, and reflection that retells the story to a new generation that may not know the roots of their favorite hobby.

The following are confirmed interviews for the documentary:

Nolan Bushnell – co-founder of Atari

David Crane – co-founder of Activision

Warren Robinett – creator of Adventure, one of the world’s first RPGs

Dona Bailey – co-creator of Centipede, one of the first games to attract a large female audience

Dave Shepperd – creator of Night Driver, one of the first racing games ever

Garry Kitchen – programmer for Atari 2600’s Donkey Kong

Those who want to tell you the story as well:

Peer Schneider – Senior Vice President of Content & Publisher at IGN

Patrick Scott Patterson – Video Game Media Personality

Rick Medina – Owner of Arcade Odyssey
