Om detta spel

Follow the creation of the games Super Meat Boy, Braid and FEZ through this Sundance award-winning feature documentary. Critic’s Pick of the New York Times and declared a “Must See” by Ain’t It Cool News. Watch the full theatrical cut in 1080p HD.

After almost two years of painstaking work, designer Edmund McMillen and programmer Tommy Refenes await the release of their first major game for Xbox, Super Meat Boy—the adventures of a skinless boy in search of his girlfriend, who is made of bandages. At PAX, a major video-game expo, developer Phil Fish unveils his highly anticipated, four-years-in-the-making FEZ. Jonathan Blow considers beginning a new game after creating Braid, one of the highest-rated games of all time.

First-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky capture the emotional journey of these developers as they sacrifice money, health and sanity to realize their lifelong dreams of sharing their games with the world. Four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal— to express oneself through a video game.

Features:

  • 1080P, full HD video application.
  • ‘Team Meat’ Audio Commentary Track: Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes provide their various insights throughout the film. Hilarious, informative and sometimes outright lies. It’s a great compliment to the film.

Before you ask "Why is a movie on Steam?!", allow for me to give you an explanation:


Indie Game The Movie is so much more than a movie or a game. It's a tool that allows ANYONE even remotely interested in the gaming industry to gain some powerful insight into the world of programming and creativeness as well as the obstacles that often come with it. What makes this so much more special is that it's all coming from indie developers (indie = independent).

Video games today are becoming arguably less interesting, unique or fun. A prominent example would be the Call of Duty series. This is often due to corporations or big companies pressuring developers to not take risks, to follow a formula or to indulge in what has been termed "shady game practices". I'm talking about controversial DLC or downloadable content (now associated with small content cut from the main game and sold for a large price afterwards), lack of support after a title's release, paid reviews, and more. Go back roughly 2 decades and there was a time when: developers were always seeking to create unique experiences for all platforms, there was never any hesitation to release free additional expansion packs and the consumer base weren't treated like buffoons and were engaged with directly.

Indie games or indie developers are essentially a revival of that golden age of gaming. It's true, the indie scene have been around even in the early 1990s but due to advancing technology, growing expectations and an increasingly competitive market (consoles, PCs and other gaming platforms) -- small teams have become big teams and these teams have since sought companies that will fund their large projects. Viewed initially by many as a good thing, it's attributed to what the majority now term a "gradual decline in game ingenuity". Indie is the response to that.

So that's what Indie Game The Movie is all about. It showcases what it means to be indie and some of the big names behind the indie rebirth in the late 2000s. Braid; Super Meat Boy; Fez. Video games which are now extremely recognizable but only because of how different they were to what else was being offered to gamers at the time. "Different" comes at a cost though. Risk. The teams behind these 3 video games contained groups as big as 5 people or as small as just 2. Not only was their life sacrificed but money, wellbeing and in most cases, time, that could have been spent looking for a job elsewhere (that wasn't dominated by well-known series and developers).

You will personally see the payoff in making something that's your own and that you can share; despite how impossible it may seem at first or the light at the end of the tunnel appearing dimmer than ever. This is especially true with Fez. Fez took 5 long years and a large chunk is spent on Phil Fish. Sympathy, disappointment and joy is what I felt when I saw the development journey or rather, development hell, of Fez. At the same time, Fish is also tackling the ongoing stigma against video games and hoping to prove it wrong. For example: video games are often viewed as a lower form of entertainment and that they can't express ideas and concepts as well as any other medium.

Incredibly, all 3 indie games later go on to be some of the most critically-acclaimed video games of all time. You may never have heard of them before or never realized that something like Minecraft or Amnesia was made with very little manpower but after this experience: you will hopefully begin to respect and appreciate this great twist in the gaming industry. I've always supported indie games and my expectations are time and time again blown away due to the chances taken by the amazing people behind these typically ambitious projects. Being indie was something that was initially laughed at or not taken as seriously as it should've been, and Indie Game The Movie goes to great lengths to make you believe and feel like you're a part of the indie scene.

That's why Indie Game The Movie is so good. I've never witnessed anything like it before, let alone for something video game-related. It's professionally made, has a great soundtrack and if you buy the Steam version: has tons of extras, additional commentary (from the developers themselves) and a hidden video game! If you do like Indie Game The Movie: buy the DLC "Special Edition DLC". It focuses on more lesser known indies and also follows up the 3 main indie game teams after Indie Game The Movie was finished in production.

TL;DR - If you're even remotely interested in the gaming industry and want to know what it's like to be indie -- get this now!!

This Movie shows how hard it is to be a indie game developer and how much time and work goes in to the games it also shows the life of these indie game developers and what it takes to get rid of the bugs in the games it shows all the things they need to give up to make games and how they are just like us they smile at the reviews and laugh they are not just indie game developers they have family it shows that and friends and the music is great in the movie we get really close to what they are trying to put in to the games and how the games are some parts of their childhood.

Game: 8.5/10

This documentary isn't about indie games, it's about 4 developers. If you're looking for some overview of indie development this isn't the film for you: it's an extremely personal look at how creating games can be both intensely damaging and rewarding, and as such, sometimes gets pretty intimate with the subjects of the film.

Overall, an engaging watch that really gave me insight into the lives of those featured.
The price is honestly fairly high, be sure to grab it on sale.

Update: The commentary from both Team Meat and the Directors are really great reels. The Special Edition has a huge load of extra content, including interviews with other devs that didn't get into the film.

Get to know the masterminds behind the indie smash hits: This emotional documentary sticks close to the people and their bumpy road to success. Witness fear, law suits, proposals of marriage, frustration, pure tension and finally some life changing sales numbers. It's an indepth look behind the scenes and absolutely recommended if you have ever played an indie game, especially Super Meat Boy, Braid or FEZ.

I watched the game on Netflix. Yes, you can do that for the price of your Netflix membership. What this adds is all the extra content and a very quick little matching game. Is it worth $10? In the spirit of many of the designers in this, it is up to you. Rohrer asks on his site about a game to buy - what is it worth to you?

I bought this via an auction during the Winter 2014 pre-sale auction for about 4200 gems, which at that time was about $4-5, but really was no cost to me because I converted a bunch of items from badge creation and it wasn't direct real money. If I had put down an actual $4 was it worth it? I think so. The minds of these developers is something you get to look into for a small entry fee, and its alot of content not on Netflix.

Oh and there are achievements on steam too, if you like those (I do - bonus!)

Hm, not too sure if this is a Movie review or Game review, oh well just do both. Indie Game: The Movie is about the creators of Super Meat Boy, FEZ, and Braid and how their lives affect on making just one game. I kinda feel bad for the creator of FEZ cause it takes 4 years to make a game and his partner will literally take all the money. This movie is apparently on Netflix!? I just had to put it there. Indie Game: The Movie contains coarse language, Viewer discretion is advised. Indie Game: The Movie contains love, violence and sadness.
I give this Movie game review 9 out of 10 because it only talks about 3 games with their creators. They shouldve added a few more games and their creators who had trouble making their game.
Also this movie game has a DLC!? Thats it im out. *breaks computer monitor*

This is a really great game. The story is engaging, gameplay is very intuitive (though there is no control-remapping) and the characters are so deep, you almost feel they are real.


....



In all seriousness, awesome movie. Team Meat is great and hearing the stories of all these guys is interesting and touching.

Film can be described in two words: Tense and Emotional!!!

The film will tell an emotional and enlightening story about the struggles and seemingly impossible goals that independent game designers are forced to deal with as they carve a path toward releasing the fruits of their labor.

I was expecting to learn something related to game development, but all what I've seen is only about glorying people, showing how much "great" are they. After watching about 30min, I started to fast-forwarding the video because the talk about people was so much to the level they went back to their childhood and how they grow up .. wtf!!
I needed to learn some serious things about making games, planning, developing, marketing.
The only part I appreciate in the movie is the last 20 min, where they start selling their games.
All in all, it is a waist of time, frankly.

I was expecting a better/broader documentary like "I Know That Voice" - but what I got instead was an easily dated exposé on 3 manbabies who were promoting how much effort they put into their games in the form of a sap story.

The narratives for Phil Fish and the fat goth who made Meatboy were clean, but didn't have much connection at all to the narrative of Johnathon Blow.

Overall, the scope of this film was too narrow and spent too much time shaping audience perception - just like the media already does.
