We were happy to reveal some exciting news for indie game and indie film fans in the Indianapolis area last night on The Horrible Show. Thanks to the sponsorship of the Canadian Consulate and our friends at Indy Film Fest and the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indie Game: The Movie will have an exclusive screening in Indianapolis on Wednesday, May 23 at 7pm at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
This is a film that is very close to the hearts of the gamers here at Horrible Night as it reveals the stories and passion behind indie game development by focusing on the people behind Super Meat Boy, Fez, and Braid. We’re proud to be a promotional partner the event and hope that all of you will join us for the screening. In addition to dedicating May’s featured editorials to indie games, we will be giving away tickets to the event and be updating you on any special events around the screening.
With the 21st-century comes a new breed of artist: the indie game designer. Refusing to toil for major developers, these innovators independently conceive, design, and program their distinctly personal games with the hope of connection and success. Indie Game: The Movie (2012, dirs. Lisanne Pajot & James Swirsky, Canada, 96 mins.) portrays four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal: to make the video game a supreme form of expression.
The characters: after years of work, designer Edmund McMillen and programmer Tommy Refenes work toward the release of their first major game for Xbox, Super Meat Boy. At a big video game expo, developer Phil Fish unveils his highly anticipated game, FEZ. And designer Jonathan Blow considers a new game after creating one of the highest-rated games of all time, Braid. Indie Game: The Movie won Best Editing Award at 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
