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.

Pure Inspiration

Ever since I first heard of this movie, which just happened to feature one of my favorite artists ever (Edmund McMillen, co-creator of Super Meat Boy), I knew I had to see it. Recently, I managed to make it to a screening in D.C. It was everything I expected, and more. I may be fairly familiar with the world of video games, but even someone who has never SEEN, let alone played one will get something out of this movie. It's an inspirational tale, not just based on a true story, but recorded in the moment while the story unfolded. The editing work is amazing, and really shows what these developers went through in a relatable and polished manner. It's funny, sad, beautiful, and brilliant. It's an absolute must see for anyone with any creativity in them whatsoever.


Saw this movie in theaters and can't stop thinking about it. it is great and an inspiration. This movie is great even for people who do not love video games. Two Thumbs Up!!!!!!


Indie Game the Movie was absolutely wonderful. Very inspirational to me as a indie game developer.
