– Chris Crawford and Jason Rohrer. Also Perfect Suguri Pre-Orders!

By: Xander

On: June 27th, 2009

Game creators Chris Crawford and Jason Rohrer will be the main focus of the new episode of “Into the Night”, a joint French/German documentary series. The five minute preview above has been released to give you a taste of the full hour-long documentary that will be aired on ‘ZDF’ and ‘ARTE’, both available free on Astra on July 2nd. Not to fear everyone else outside of europe, as according to Play This Thing! who previously posted a flattering preview also announce that there’ll be an online version streamed much like the preview. Hope you’ll all catch it then when it’s released!

Bonus News: Pre-orders for Perfect Suguri on Rockin’ Android have begun, with a special sale price of $16.99 instead of the regular $19.99, which also includes free U.S shipping. They’ve got my money at least, but then again they probably already did…

(Thanks to Jsticker in tigIRC for the Arte.TV news!)

    I have to admit, it’s a little weird to realize that I was standing maybe 10-15 feet to the left exhibiting an iPhone game. Between all the crowds, buzz, and other crazyness of the week, someone found time to acquire and produce some “thinking man” documentary television. Spending nearly 3 whole exhibition days standing around, seeing peripheral landmarks like Nintendo and that 3dvia booth, it’s like someone recorded a television show in my back yard.

    I really hope Rockin’ Android can strike a deal with ZUN to get his Touhou games over here. NOW.

    Suguri Perfect Edition is too cheap…it’s almost disgusting. I mean, AND the soundtracks? With free shipping? WTF?!?

    Chris Crawford! His book “The Art of Computer? Game Design” is the best, excellent about the theory of game design! It’s one my favorites and a pleasure to read it.

    This is pretty awesome. I was looking forward to seeing this ever since I heard about it on the Storytron forums.
