The poster for the upcoming Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution documentary film is now ready, and shown below. Click the image for access to the full-sized version, or check out the attached PDF. When the Website is ready, I'll post again, and also once distribution details for this year are finalized. The film, which is based on the Vintage Games series of books by me and Matt Barton (we're also writers and producers on the film), covers the history of videogames from the perspective of those who made it happen. Those interviewed include Nolan Bushnell, John Romero, Todd Howard, Daniel Murray, Darion Lowenstein, Eric Lindstrom, David Crane, and many, many more. The narrator is Cain Devore. The film also has a Facebook and Google+ presence, although Armchair Arcade is still a great place to find out new details.

You considered using the famous "outline shape" for the letters of the title but were afraid of the pack of rabid wolves^H^H^H^H^H^H lawyers. ;-P
The poster looks phenomenal! If the movie is half as cool as the poster, it should be a great success!
The main guy on the poster is actually a recurring animated character in the documentary.
He looks like the character "Moss" from UK sitcom , The IT crowd...
Good catch, it just might be. I'm not sure what the animator's intention was nor do I have much familiarity with that program. Maybe when you see the film you can determine if that was the inspiration.
