Indie Game: The Movie

January 22, 2012

As my coverage of Monaco and other Indie games demonstrates, I am lovin’ me some Indie creativity. Indie Game: The Movie features developer Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, Phil Fish, and Jonathan Blow of Super Meat Boy, Braid, and Fez respectively.

First-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky capture the emotional journey of these meticulously obsessive artists who devote their lives to their interactive art. Four developers, three games , and one ultimate goal— to express oneself through a video game.

Apparently, HBO is considering this as the inspiration for a fictional half-hour comedy. Nerds/Geeks are funny just as they are. This has tremendous potential.

UPDATE: The devs themselves loved the movie.  Video after the jump.

    Just saw this at Joystiq. Indie titles are the shit, hands-down. They do stuff larger development studios can only dream of.
