I am always the first to tout video game news, so when I heard that Indie Game: The Movie was accepted to Sundance, I knew it was something I wanted to share. The film will be screened and in the running for the World Cinema Documentary category. It looks at the craft of creating an indie video game and highlights the creators of Super Meat Boy. It also looks at the story behind the success of the highly popular Braid.
Filmmakers James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot spent a year following the people behind indie games across North America. It was funded by two Kickstarter campaigns that raised a total of almost $100,000.
The 2012 Sundance Film Festival takes place January 19-29 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. Indie Game: The Movie is up against 11 other films in its category.
