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

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!!

Indie Game: The Movie is not a game, it's exactly what title suggest: a movie. Plus some additional scenes.
A movie about indie games development.
A movie about what means to be a game developer.
A movie which every true gaming fan should watch.
A movie which has more in common with gaming than many video games.

VERDICT:
If you dream to be Indie developer, watch it first.
If you think that every game developer is a rich guy, watch it.
If you are CEO of EA, watch it. It will remind you why people make games.

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.

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.

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
Graphic: 9.5/10

100% Achievement : Easy | Medium | Hard | Very Hard

This is by far the best movie I have ever had the pleasure of viewing. I eat, sleep, and breathe this god damn movie. Without this movie I would be less than nothing, just a wandering soul attempting to fill the hole inside my heart.

♥♥♥♥ Phil Fish.

This is a movie, obviously. Mostly a documentary, really, though a pretty interesting one on indie game development. There were definitely a lot of scenes, comments, notes, emotions, and such that I could really relate to given my work in game localization.

Definitely reccomend it to anyone and everyone who doesn't know what it's like to develop a game.

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.

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. :)

I already immensely enjoy documentaries, but I think this one is perfect. I watch this every time I want to get excited to make a new game or to introduce game development to someone who knows nothing about it. The special edition is worth it if you are already a huge fan of the documentary, but not necessary.
