I was very fortunate to catch the premiere of Indie Game: The Movie Friday night. I also got a chance to speak with the directors as well as indie game developers Phil Fish (Fez) and both Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes of Team Meat and it was a very surreal night especially after watching their stories unfold on the big screen.
The film itself, a documentary on the processes of the two developers above along with Jonathan Blow (Braid), details their struggles as they deal with developing and releasing the games that have made them famous within the indie game community. The film was gripping, intense, emotional, and quite dark, but it was also inspiring to see these stories especially within a medium we all love.
Check out if the film is coming to a city near you.
