Development[edit]

The project was published on Kickstarter on February 9th, 2016 with a goal of raising $6,303. The goal would be reached only 9 days later. Funding for the project ended on March 10th, 2016. The project ended up earning $9,290 from 337 backers. Following the successful funding of the project, False began recording major tournaments and interviewing players.[2] By late May of 2017, False had accumulated nearly one terabyte of footage for the documentary. Despite this, a lot of footage and many interviews were still needed. Acquiring an interview with Otori was notably a big obstacle in development due to there existing a large language barrier and Otori not being present within the community recently. Editing on the documentary began in June or July 2017. Prior to beginning the editing process, False contacted Samox, the director and producer of The Smash Brothers for help and insight on how to organize footage. A program named Scrivener was used to help organize footage. Around the same time as contacting Samox, False managed to find and work with a narrator for the documentary. During this time, False also began working with Stephen Walking on composing the soundtrack for the documentary.[3] A trailer was released to backers of the kickstarter on April 10th, 2018.[4]
