"While not actually an anime, I feel that Phil Fish has some serious yandere moé appeal to him that makes this OVA worth watching."

Про цю гру

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.

I personally like the idea of game-industry related movies and documentaries on Steam, and “Indie Game: The Movie” is definitely a good way to get that ball rolling.

The thing I like most about this movie is just how personal it is. It really gets in deep into these developers and you really get to know them (or at least it feels that way). Its great being able to have a name, a face and a personality to games that we know and love. They’ve been a hit, affected people and I’m glad these guys got some recognition for their hard work and everything they put into it. It’s something I would like to see more of.

The thing with indie games is that unlike AAA titles, they have personality. They weren’t factory made just to make money. Most of the time it’s an idea that grew into something that became a part of them.

Hearing their side to the story, being able to support these people morally and financially (I’m guessing they get a cut from this) is nice. Some people might not think Steam is the platform for this kind of thing but it’s unusual and I like it!

If you want to look a bit further into indie games and their developers as a whole, this is a definite watch. Not only is this movie a great inspiration to normal everyday people like myself, but I imagine it’s a nice push in the right direction for other people that are looking or wanting to be in game development.

I watched this movie a long time ago, I only just now listened (and/or watched, in ways) the commentary tracks. They have one by the directors and one by Team Meat (who are honestly my favourite part of this movie) and they are both nice to listen to. It’s nice additional content to the movie. The directors are informative and you see things a little more from behind the cameras. Whereas Team Meat are just plain funny as f***.

Achievement wise, this is an easy 100%. Although there is a little hidden mini-game which you get an achievement for which was a tad bit frustrating. Only because I don’t actually know enough indie games off by heart to be able to do it. There was a lot of trial and error for me!

All in all this is an awesome and inspiring movie and I think it’s definitely worth a watch.


TL;DR: Good movie, good commentary and easy an 100%. BUY IT, PLEB.

An amazing documentary. Shows the ups and downs of indie developers and their inpirations for the games they create, as well as their opinion on how and why games should be done. It follows mainly 3 developers, which created 3 amazing games. I recommend also the dlc, this is one of the best documentaries I have watched because of its content, which is of my interest. Recommended for gamers, but also for anyone interested in looking on how things are made and crap they have been through to publish their game. 10/10

It's the Documentary about Indie game developer's Life when they still building the game from scratch 'till its became Indie games.You watch as they struggle to make the game and the tension was real. A beautiful piece of documentary movie
of those who likes Indie games or even big name games shouldn't missed.
Its also kinda sad that Phil fish was blame by many people due to Racism(not true) or even Cancelled Fez II(true)
but behind all of that is because all of us gamer who make all of this happened. He didn't even do any racist yet,only told that the japanese game now a day sucks and people already losing sh*t.

8.5/10 - Phil Fish's Epic Drama life.

This was a compelling journey into the opportunities and challenges of the Indie Game Developer. We recently watched this as part of a local indie game dev meetup, and everyone had a smile on their face - though for varied reasons. I knew that in that room, we had a number of people who shared the same kind of passion for games, but who had also experienced like challenges.

For my students, I want to point out 2 things:
- Look at the amount of sacrifice made by these developers... emotional, finanacial, family pressures and so on. This is a rough career path even if it can be personally rewarding. Think about the successful and the damaging behaviours you see in this film, and consider your own approaches to getting your projects done (for example).

- For the love of goodness, can you PLEASE review what 'Code Freeze' means!!! I felt so upset for Phil Fish at his big demo when Fez is dying from. as he described it, a bunch of things he changed the night before. Blowing a product demo can be fatal to your project.
