Space Invaders: 40th Anniversary Retrospective

In June 2018, Space Invaders turned 40.

As someone who's grown up playing Space Invaders in its various forms, I wanted to create a video that went through its long and storied history, from humble beginnings in Japanese arcades to modern re-imaginings and countless remakes along the way.

This was my first foray into the 'video essay', which describes long-form video content intended to inform. I've certainly improved since creating this video, but that's not to say this initial attempt is bad.

Just...retro.
