Man Vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler has been funded on Kickstarter. It’s a video game documentary that charts the history of Nibbler, the world’s first billion-point video game, and the story of Timothy McVey, the first person to reach the score milestone.

The film’s creators Andrew Seklir & Tim Kinzy have raised $59,600 of their $53,470 goal over on Kickstarter with five days to go. Some five years in the making, Man Vs Snake sees McVey claim his high score, only to have it allegedly beaten by Italian Enrico Zanetti. He then embarks on a quest to reclaim his title.

Man Vs Snake also includes cameos from legendary record holders, as well as King of Kong’s Walter Day & Billy Mitchell.
