Submission + - Dragon's Lair getting documented (

An anonymous reader writes: Created in 1983, Dragon's Lair was an arcade game like none other. It boasted over 20 minutes of hand drawn animation by ex-Disney animators Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and John Pomeroy and was the first laserdisc based arcade game released in the United States. Sleepyeyed Films is currently in production of a feature length documentary film that will explore the efforts of the creators, the loyal fan base it has created, and why the game has endured in a constantly shifting video game market, despite gameplay criticisms. A video teaser is on youtube and a fanpage is on facebook. The documentary is rumored to be released in 2013 to commemorate the 30 year anniversary of the legendary game.

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
