With a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, Indie Game: The Movie released to the public today.
The documentary focuses on the independent gaming community, specifically the developers creating the games, even more specifically developers Edmund McMillen/Tommy Refenes (Super Meat Boy), Phil Fish (Fez), and Jonathan Blow (Braid).
Indie Game: The Movie is the film-child of Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky, both first-time filmmakers. The pair worked on Indie Game for over a year, traveling around and conducting interviews and recording the developers pixel-deep, in action.
Jim Guthrie, composer of Superbrothers: Sword and Swocery, created the movie’s soundtrack.
The project originally launched on Kickstarter in 2010. The campaign met its $15,000 funding goal in two days. The final count of the campaign: a total of $23,341.
A second Kickstarter was created in June 2011, to help finish the project. This second campaign managed to bring in an astounding $71,335.
Now, one year later…Indie Game: The Movie is complete.
The film is also available on Itunes and Steam.
