Indie Game: The Movie's Old-Fashioned Sensibilities

“Indie Game: The Movie” is an eminently 2012 experience. A crowdfunded, independent documentary about indie games both released and (at the time of filming) not yet released, both its production and its subject matter are thoroughly modern. It is a strikingly well-produced look at the struggles these indie game developers faced and features an emotional core that is difficult to resist.

Yet it also frequently finds itself stuck chasing tired cinematic ideals instead of providing a more fully-dimensional view of the process these developers went through. (PC, Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360)
