Indie Game: The Movie!

Posted by Bluebaby - May 22nd, 2010

So this March after GDC i had the honor of being documented and interviewed for an upcoming feature length documentary by Blink Works called"Indie Game: The Movie". The video above was a teaser trailer Blink Works did for the movie in hopes people would donate to help fund the film.

They were asking for 15k using kickstarter, but acquired 20K in donations the 1st 2 days of asking for funds. But if you still feel like donating to help further development you can donated a few bucks here.

They also released another video showing my wife Danielle making a meat boy plush...

If you look close you can see a few NG related things laying around (note the mindchamber patch! REPRESENT!)

Anyway i thought id share that, Tommy and i are only 2 of quite a few devs they will be interviewing and with a trailer like that i really think this could be something quite amazing.

what do you think?



Gratz dude, you deserve it.
Hope the movie is going to be as good as the 4 minute interview with you.

Well i'd never heard of the movie before this post but now i'm rather excited for it. It has excellent production value and the content that you provided was just excellent. A very touching story with the grandma :)

Happy 50th blog entry too i see :P

Man, that almost made me choke up.
Look really interesting, CAN'T WAAAAIT.

These clips are really heart warming. :)

Youre beard looking stunning in 720p. Nice Tool t shirt!

My girlfriend got me a Meat Boy plush for my 21st, I love it!

I just lost the game. :3

I never leave comments on this site, But dude I just watched the intro And you seem like such a nice dude so honest! I really enjoyed the trailer. There really is something great about you

awesome. inspiring. i always enjoyed your stuff. not THAT stuff u pervert! only thing you think about is meat now?

they should give some of the proceeds of the extra money to charity or start a 'rising inie game developer fund or something'. Ive always gotten a bitter taste in my mouth from places that ask for donations, reached their goal and continue to rake in money anyway. People banded together and helped reach that goal why not use the excess to give back to people?

i hear what youre saying but when your broken its hard not to take the money directed towards you and what youre working on.

if anything simply making this film about indie games will get a lot of attention turned back towards the indies either way, so in that way they are giving back to us.

Garbage Pail Kids is so you

and yeah I saw this and its gonna be magnificent

Btw I just downloaded the Meat Boy microgame for Warioware DIY.

art direction looks pretty good for the documentary

Very high quality stuff! It's always fun to see developers behind the scenes, and see through their eyes.

Great stuff! Keep on going

It is always great to so indie developers supported in such ways. Congratulations on being part of this documentary.

wow. its really good to know that someone like me grew up to be successful like you. i'm really glad i watched this, thanks edmund. i'm gonna go play some gish

Your wife has some bad ass tattoos.

wait a minute...your beard in that pic is inaccurate too the real thing D: [shock,horror]

Video games are not art. I read it on Roger Ebert.

I should make Indie Movie :: The Game
It's a game where yyou have to ask for donations, and buy cameras and stuff, and then you have to find developers to interview...
K I'm done lol

I don't understand Hideo Kojima. He insists video games aren't and never will be an art. But video games are art even by dictionary definition, and that's so obvious in games like Time Fcuk, Gish, and Aether. Lovely interview clip, I found it informative and interesting.
