Check out this trailer for the recently Kickstarter funded retro gaming documentary Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler. This wonderfully self-aware story of the a record setting score and the fight to defend it is set for release in December of 2013.

The trailer tells the story of Tim McVey, the first person to reach a billion points on the arcade game Nibbler after playing over 40 hours straight. The Kickstarter page sums it up:

Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler is set for release in December 2013. For more information check out Man vs Snake's Kickstarter page.
