Branching Paths GDC Film Festival Sale

As part of the GDC Film Festival, Branching Paths is 50% off this week!

Two years in the making, Branching Paths is styled as a “mosaic of the developers, publishers and people who gravitate to indie games in Japan” directed by Anne Ferrero, perhaps best known to game development audiences as the director behind Toco Toco, a webseries documentary about Japanese creatives that has interviewed the likes of Swery 65 (Deadly Premonition) and Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez).

That access is replicated here, with subjects including Yoshiro Kimura (Brave Yamada-Kun) and Dylan Cuthbert (Pixeljunk series), as the documentary charts the beginning of Japan’s flourishing indie game movement.

The Japanese video game industry led the world in creativity and innovation from the 1980's to the mid-2000's, but in recent years Japanese studios have been unable to keep up with advancements in technology, with many shifting focus away from risky projects and unique gaming experiences.

Today, there are many players around the world who long to play games like those that inspired and excited them in their childhood. And for industry veterans and young talents who aspire to the pursuit of originality and creative freedom, going independent is the answer.

Japan has a history of independent creators building lively communities, even within industries where large media companies rule. Comic Market, and events like it attract more than 1 million attendees yearly.

For the last several years, the Japanese game industry has begun to recognize the power of independent creators and the momentum of the fledgling scene, and in 2013, the Tokyo Game Show created a pavilion to feature indie creators for the first time in its history.

"Will this be the beginning of a new movement?"
With this question, we began our two-year journey through Japan’s Indie scene.

Branching Paths is a mosaic of the developers, publishers and people who gravitate to indie games in Japan.
