After a successful Kickstarter campaign, documentary company CREATORVC is giving gamers another chance to support their upcoming video game documentary FPS: first person shooter.
Launched today, an Indiegogo for the documentary is live right now, and it will end on May 23. Some perks offered in some tiers include backer gameplay footage in the documentary, tickets to the movie premiere, and a producer’s credit. The Indiegogo campaign can be found here.

“I want to make this film an entertaining ride that captures the feelings of joy created by some of the most incredible virtual experiences of our youth, and I’m thrilled to tell the stories of the pioneers who created them.”
