Half a year after my first stay in the joystick factory in Shenzhen, I returned to it again this time with a proposal to help them keeping their factory community when joystick demands fade. I persuaded the factory owners to let me try out Farmification – using farming to keep the factory family together when work dwindles.
This year’s Christmas orders are even smaller than the previous year and the factory is already downsizing. I filmed the remains of this “making end of the gaming community” trying to prototype my new farming strategy. Many of the people in this film will probably not be there next year. I thank all the friends who wishes to remain nameless and whose help this project would not be done without.
