A Riveting, Emotional Behind-The-Scenes Look At Video Game Development (Must-See)

starkinsuder.com: Indie Game: The Movie is one of the best documentaries of the year. Filmed on a budget of about $25,000 (raised via Kickstarter) and shot with a Canon EOS 5D, the film’s superb editing and beautiful cinematography conspire to bring us up-close and personal with the artistic brains behind independent video game development. Three actual Xbox Live games — Super Meat Boy, FEZ and Braid — and their creators are the focal point for an emotional, riveting hundred minutes. We witness the entire (and often extremely painful) creative process, from incubation and artistic design to marketing and testing. The goal: drive first day game sales as hard as possible. Then, if you’re lucky, pay-off your parent’s mortgage, buy a new car and get some sleep. But, interestingly there’s far more at stake here. Much more. (Braid, Culture, Fez, Kickstarter, Super Meat Boy)
