A documentary primer on game design by game designers

Books  about videogames are filled with screenshots that don't quite capture the essence of a game like video footage does. The upcoming documentary design primer, What's in a Game, plans to cover topics like monetization, co-operative play, and control schemes, among other aspects of game design. 

Since the series will be free, the project's Kickstarter is offering another good: participation in the Gameifesto Beta program. It's a social network for game developers to find people (artists, musicians, coders, etc) to work with.
