    Game Designer Reality Show

    It's about a guy making an MMO he thinks will take on WoW..
    except he's working out of a tiny studio apartment and they have no investment. John Romero has a camio too.

    I actually had the same idea. Not the developing an MMO to take on WOW, that's just stupid, but to start an indie game developer and then create a documentary about the development of a game. Indie games survive solely on exposure, and a good documentary with a little buzz could really give your company a nice spotlight, as well as help create a really passionate fanbase. It could also help establish the aesthetic that indie games need.

    But the fact that these guys chose to develop the most difficult and expensive type of game possible, and expect to compete against multi-million dollar AAA titles just shows how little they've thought this through. It plays against every strength an independent developer has, and exacerbates every weakness. A 1 in a 100,000,000 chance of success isn't even remotely close to how astronomically the odds are against them.
