Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made by Jason Schreier
Developing video games—heros journey or fools errand? The creative and technical logistics that go into building todays hottest games can be more harrowing and complex than the games themselves, often seeming like an endless maze or a bottomless abyss. In Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, Jason Schreier takes readers on a fascinating odyssey behind the scenes of video game development, where the creator may be a team of 600 overworked underdogs or a solitary geek genius. Exploring the artistic challenges, technical impossibilities, marketplace demands, and Donkey Kong-sized monkey wrenches thrown into the works by corporate, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels reveals how bringing any game to completion is more than Sisyphean—its nothing short of miraculous.
Taking some of the most popular, bestselling recent games, Schreier immerses readers in the hellfire of the development process, whether its RPG studio Biowares challenge to beat an impossible schedule and overcome countless technical nightmares to build Dragon Age: Inquisition; indie developer Eric Barones single-handed efforts to grow country-life RPG Stardew Valley from one mans vision into a multi-million-dollar franchise; or Bungie spinning out from their corporate overlords at Microsoft to create Destiny, a brand new universe that they hoped would become as iconic as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings—even as it nearly ripped their studio apart.
Documenting the round-the-clock crunches, buggy-eyed burnout, and last-minute saves, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels is a journey through development hell—and ultimately a tribute to the dedicated diehards and unsung heroes who scale mountains of obstacles in their quests to create the best games imaginable.

Leslie finally convinces Melissa to hit the gym and work out some frustrations, which seems to work, as she feels rejuvenated and meets a great personal trainer named Trey Adam Huber. His motivational skills are on point and he helps her set up a fitness plan she is excited about, including a fitness band that tracks her progress via an app. She is excited and positive about her new outlook, but little does she know that Trey granted himself access to the app as well, allowing him to monitor her even outside the gym. As she meets a new love interest, her interest in the gym wanes a little, which upsets Trey, but he tries to keep a cool head. But as strange things start to happen to those around Melissa, is Trey just looking out for her or does he have darker intentions?

I think this movie is a great example of how take the established Lifetime formula, key in on the crucial elements, and shed the filler to deliver a tight, effective genre picture.
