A view into the lesser known world of indie video game designers, who sacrifice money, health and sanity to realise their creative visions. Following the making of SUPER MEAT BOY, FEZ and BRAID, this Sundance award-winner captures the emotional journey of these meticulously obsessive artists.
"The film delivers, taking us on a journey with regular people pushed to do something different, but equally extraordinary. There is a vibrant, beating heart that powers "Indie Game: The Movie" and will hopefully serve to inspire the many of us who confine ourselves to small places and lock humanity out while struggling and striving to create something beautiful.
