Indie Game: The Movie
With the 21st century comes a new breed of struggling independent artist - the indie game designer.
Refusing to toil for major developers, these innovators independently conceive, design and program their distinctly personal games in the hope that they might also find success.
Following the making of the games Super Meat Boy
, this Sundance award-winning film captures the tension and drama created by the developers' vulnerability and obsessive quest to express themselves through a 21st-century art form.
First-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky capture the emotional journey of a group of meticulously obsessive artists who devote their lives to their interactive art.
