E3 09: Tetris documentary for 25 years of blocky goodness.


2:00 PM on 06.03.2009



Out of all events related to Tetris, besides the fact that the game is a quarter of a century old, is definitely the announcement of the 25th anniversary of Tetris for the iPhone. In celebration of this milestone (and let’s be real, there are not a ton of game franchises that can say that), EA showed off a special 3-minute documentary of the history of the game.

Think of this as a brief, Cliff Notes guide, to the history of Tetris. Seriously, there was enough drama in the creation of our favorite block-dropping game to force BBC to make a gem of a documentary of Tetris called From Russia with Love. Sure, this documentary isn’t it, but it’s definitely interesting.
