Experience The Mighty No. 9 Documentary // Episode 0

Mighty No. 9 has proven itself as a true turning point in the industry. While other Kickstarter games have proven that fans have a desire to see revivals of past franchise games and new games for long dead genre's such as the point n click adventure, Mighty No. 9 is the game that shows major developers they no longer need overbearing publishers. Great games rely on fun, innovative and gameplay rich experiences and not on overblown graphics and wildly bloated budgets. A sad truth to the current (and soon to be outdated) development model is that creators often loose the rights to their creations and can no longer give fans the games they really want. Kickstarter has changed this in a major way and is sure to be the start of a game development revolution.

In the spirit of the ill fated Mega Man Legends 3, 2 Player Productions has teamed with Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept to give fans an inside look at the creation of Mighty No. 9. To this end, they are releasing a documentary in multiple parts which chronicles the game's creation from its planning stages to actual completion. This kind of access was rarely (if ever) permitted under big publishers and shows a fundamental shift in the way developers interact with the fans. Needless to say, this is a must watch for any Mega Man fan or aspiring game developer. Enjoy!
