Über dieses Spiel

Verfolgen Sie die Entwicklung der Spiele Super Meat Boy, Braid und FEZ in diesem von Sundance ausgezeichneten Dokumentarfilm. Critics' Pick der New York Times und von Ain’t It Cool News zum “Pflichttitel” erklärt. Sehen Sie sich die vollständige Kinofassung in Full HD an.

Nach fast zwei Jahren harter Arbeit erwarten Designer Edmund McMillen und Programmierer Tommy Refenes die Veröffentlichung ihres ersten großen Spiels für Xbox, Super Meat Boy — Die Abenteuer eines Jungen ohne Haut auf der Suche nach seiner Freundin, die aus Bandagen besteht. Auf der PAX, einer großen Videospielmesse, enthüllt Entwickler Phil Fish sein mit Spannung erwartetes, vier-Jahre-in-der-Entwicklung FEZ. Jonathan Blow überlegt sich, nach der Entwicklung von Braid, eines der am höchsten bewerteten Spiele aller Zeiten, mit einem neuen Spiel zu beginnen.

Das Duo Lisanne Pajot und James Swirsky, Neulinge der Filmproduktion, erfasst die emotionale Reise dieser Entwickler, wie sie Geld, körperliche und geistige Gesundheit opfern, um ihre Lebensträume vom Teilen ihrer Spiele mit der Welt zu realisieren. Vier Entwickler, drei Spiele und ein oberstes Ziel: sich über ein Videospiel zum Ausdruck bringen.

Dieser Dokumentarfilm über die Entwicklungsphasen und Interviews mit den Entwicklern von Super Meat Boy, Braid und FEZ ist einfach nur gut und packend.Es ist einfach schön zu sehen, wie viel Herzblut die Entwickler in ihre Spiel stecken und als spiegel ihrer Seele auch wahrnehmen. Der Film geht 103 Minuten ist aber zu keiner Zeit langweilig.
Für jeden was der sich für Indiegames interessiert.

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.

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!)

I thought it was going to be an informative, behind the scenes look at indie game development. What I got was 94 minutes of crying and ♥♥♥♥♥ing. It shouldn't even be called a documentary. It's a video journal. The worst offender is Phil Fish. I literally thought he was going to break down and cry any time he was on screen. I didn't learn anything from this. I could've gotten more from reading a Wikipedia page.

I own all these games, and they are awesome. They makes the movie so much more understandable and relatable. It's very touching, and if you know the "behind the scenes" of coding a game, this really gets to you. You feel all the anger, annoyance, fear, nervousness, and happiness. Absolutely wonderful directing, 10/10; Would watch again. :)

Indie Game: The Movie isn't exactly about Indie Games. Instead, it tells the emotional and heart-felt journies of 4 game developers trying to show the world what they are made of. Include extras, achievements, trading cards, a secret game and additional commentary and you got a pretty good Steam package.

It doesn't go to much depth on talking about Indie Games, but suceeds with flying colors in providing a very emotional and amazing documentary.

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.
