About the Movie
INDIE GAME: THE MOVIE looks at the underdogs of the video game industry, indie game developers, who sacrifice money, health and sanity to realize their lifelong dreams of sharing their creative visions with the world. Following the making of the games SUPER MEAT BOY, FEZ and BRAID, this Sundance award-winning film captures the tension and drama by focusing on these developers' vulnerability and obsessive quest to express themselves through a 21st-century art form.

A deep, personal, and inspiring film
I really connected to every developer in the film and after hearing the filmmakers on KCRW's The Business I had to check this out. I'm glad I did.
