indie game the movie

I am eternally fascinated at the shift of quality from big budget productions to kids in bedrooms with laptops.

Creatives all around us are grabbing increasingly inexpensive tools and churning out films with amazing special effects, publishing their own books and comics, mixing their own music, shooting their own web shows, and… making their own video games.

Indie Game: The Movie follows three such (overly-facial-haired) creatives – the guys behind Braid, Super Meat Boy, and Fez – as they each pour themselves into making a beautiful, innovative, independent, and ultimately successful game.

The makers of the film are swinging by with a screening in Tempe next week, and I very much hope I can make it.

  • Tuesday, April 10th, 7pm.
  • At MADCAP Theaters in Tempe.
  • Tickets are $12 – here – IF you use this discount code: IGTMPHX
  • (Thanks, Indie Game folks!)
  • Here’s a Facebook event for the dealeo.

Whether or not you consider yourself a gamer, I think you may enjoy this one.
