A new champion has been born from the womb of Ottuma, Iowa, the video game capital of the world. Less than two years after its release, Rock-Ola’s video game Nibbler has been dominated by Tim McVey after 44 ¼ hours of intense game play on just one quarter. He set a new world record by scoring 1,000,042,270 points at the Twin Galaxies Arcade, the first to score 1 billion points in video game history.

Andrew Seklir and Tim Kinzy have just released a documentary film about this momentous event, now available at a video store near you.
