I think it’s safe to say that Housemarque hit a home run with their twin-stick shooter “Nex Machina”, because the game is very much loved on both PC and PS4 (don’t miss out on Sharn’s “Nex Machina” PS4 review!).  So it was a very pleasant surprise for me to hear that there will be a full-length documentary about “Nex Machina” in the near future. Yes, you read it right, and the documentary is called “Name of the Game“:

“Hello from Housemarque, we recently launched our first ever self-published title, Nex Machina, on PlayStation 4 and PC, and we’ve been humbled by the reception it’s been getting. For almost 3 years now, a documentary crew has followed the Housemarque team and Eugene Jarvis—legendary creator of Robotron 2048 and Smash TV—on this journey. We’d now like to share a bit of that with you.

This is a candid look into what went on behind the scenes for the game’s announcement at PSX 2016 in Los Angeles. It shows the pressures of showing off a game to an audience for the first time and the drama of grappling with builds fresh out of the box. But not without Eugene Jarvis and Harry Krueger taking some time to discuss game design philosophy in the process.

This featurette is part of a full length documentary—Name Of The Game—delving into the entire development process of Nex Machina. For now, though, we just wanted to share a taster of things to come as a thank you. We’re just some folks with the dream of making a game like the ones we used to play as kids.”Housemarque
