Indie Game: The Movie
documentary about the indie video game culture. follows several geeks as they develop their games. one has trouble with the idea of selling out, another feels vindicated about his life choices when his game sells well, another can’t seem to get it together enough to release a highly touted game. the thing that struck me the most was how long it took to make these games. they say that they’re working on it all the time and yet it took years to make them. perhaps that’s how people feel about people renovating homes. there’s a lot of stuff that needs to be done, and unless you know what goes into it, it looks like the whole process is moving too slowly.
