from the indie desk

This isn’t specifically BigWorld-endemic, but we wanted to share a bit of significant news in the world of Indie games. Our friends behind upcoming Indie Game: The Movie have just proudly announced their film’s selection in the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

We’re excited to see another unique and poignant perspective on the world of indie game development take root with a mass audience.

Indie Game: The Movie is a feature documentary about video games, their creators and the craft. The film follows the dramatic journeys of video game developers as they create and release their games to the world.

The film tells the emotional story of friends Edmund McMillen & Tommy Refenes, as they craft their first Xbox game: “Super Meat Boy”.

It follows Phil Fish, the creator of the highly-anticipated game: “FEZ”. After 4 years of working in near solitude, Phil reveals his opus to the public for the first time.

And, the film tells the surprising story of one of the highest-rated video games of all time:”Braid”.

The film is about making video games, but at its core, it’s about the creative process, and exposing yourself through your work.

In short: Making fun and games is anything but fun and games.
