Welcome to Player Attack!

Gamers Heart Japan video launched

We all know that gamers are nice folks, deep down. We saw it last week with the Team Fortress 2 hat sale, we saw it a few weeks ago with the Chip In: Japan project, and we're seeing it today - in video form - with the amazing efforts of Gamers Heart Japan.

Gamers Heart Japan

...well we do, don't we?

This 60-minute video (yep, a whole hour) features interviews with veteran games industry types - developers, journalists and game makers - all sharing their thoughts on the Japanese game development scene.

Covering the past, present and future for Japan, the documentary aims to raise awareness, reminding viewers from all over the world that the land of the Rising Sun needs every gamer to help out as best they can, while the country struggles under one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the world.
