Press release:
Los Angeles, USA — March 20, 2019 — Futurism Studios in association with New Dawn today announced that feature-length video game documentary, The Name of the Game, will be featured in the 2nd Annual GDC Film Festival in San Francisco today (Wednesday, March 20th) at 2:10pm.

The Name of the Game follows the collaboration between Finnish video game development studio, Housemarque (Resogun, Dead Nation), and legendary video game designer Eugene Jarvis (Defender, Robotron) as they ride the emotional roller coaster of making a game in a tumultuous, high pressure industry.

The film is now available on iTunes, Amazon Video, VUDU, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vimeo and is currently on sale for a 25% discount on STEAM.

The Name of the Game accompanies the development team on a behind-the-scenes, transatlantic journey of video game creation that resulted in one of the most critically-acclaimed arcade-style shooters of all time, Nex Machina.

With executive producer Jason Taylor (X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse) and directors Paul J. Vogel and Jarno Elonen at helm, the documentary tells the true behind-the-scenes story of the struggles of making a game, capturing the boisterous highs, extreme lows, and everything in between, in the hectic world of video game development.

The film released theatrically in Finland on November 23rd, and while stirring up controversy for shedding light on some of the issues in the video games industry, the documentary quickly became one of the highest-rated documentaries of 2018, domestically.

Nex Machina is a tribute to the arcade classics of the 1980s, set in a world where humans have become deeply dependent on technology while the machines around them have reached consciousness and surpassed human intelligence tenfold. The machines turn on their creators and make it their mission to eradicate human life.

Nex Machina features explosive classic arcade gameplay, while making full use of today’s technology to complement highly developed twin-stick play. In the vein of cult classics like Resogun and Robotron, Nex Machina is the ultimate top-down voxel shooter where everything can be blown to pieces.
