Indie Game: The Movie – the indie film documentary about the making of several high-profile indie game hits, scored by indie-music composer Jim Guthrie – is so close to coming into being. Take a look at this trailer and tell us this isn't a slice of game-themed media that deserves to be welcomed to the world. Then, find out what you can do to help this project get the love it deserves.
Indie Game: The Movie is a story about people. It follows the game creators who – driven by passion, know-how and the burning desire to do interesting things with an economy of dollars and pixels – made Fez, Super Meat Boy and Braid. It's easy to see games as a wonderful medium that devours creativity and spits out product: when groundbreaking achievements from Atari's Adventure to Rockstar's L.A. Noire are accused of keeping developers' names off the final product, one might forget that games happen because people want them to. That's where IG:TM filmmakers Lisanne Pajot & James Swirsky believe they're doing something new: a movie that focuses on the passion and individual quirks of the people that made these games happen.
