Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler

"I don't like to brag, but… I don't think there's a player in the world that could've beat me." FilmBuff has debuted a trailer for a documentary called Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler, featuring some funky animation to tell the story of arcade gamer and high score record holder Tim McVey. Following in the footsteps of other arcade game docs like The King of Kong and Chasing Ghosts, this is less about the actual game of Nibbler (also known as Snake) and more about the gamer who was/is obsessed with setting (and maintaining) the highest score. I love that this apparently has its own theme song ("Man versus Snake!!") and man does this trailer do a good job of selling it. I want to watch! Don't skip this trailer.

Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler

Man vs Snake tells the story of Tim McVey who, in 1984, on a single quarter (and over 44 hours of non-stop play) was the first person in history to score over one billion points on a video game. 25 years later, rumors of a higher score surface online, attributed to Italian kickboxing champion Enrico Zanetti. This calls into question everything Tim McVey has believed for decades and forces him to make a decision: either set a new world record, or risk losing his legacy forever. Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler is co-directed by Tim Kinzy & Andrew Seklir, editors on "Battlestar Galactica" and "Caprica" making their directing debut with this documentary. It won Best Documentary at the Austin Fantastic Fest and a Jury Award at Drafthouse's Fantastic Fest last year. Man vs Snake will be available on VOD including Xbox & Amazon starting June 24th.

    Yeah, I'm often glad I never got too good in playing video games in 1980s and 1990s. It just might be possible that I turned to be all right ...
