As the title says, I'm having some mixed feelings about the new Indie Game: The Movie.
On the one hand I'm looking forward to seeing it & am happy for the opportunity to see a glimpse into the lives and creative process of the interviewed indies, but on the other we have an almost two hour film about indie games that focuses on three extremely successful teams and their games:
Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes with Super Meat Boy, Phil Fish with FEZ and Jonathan Blow with Braid (was Notch not available?).
I admire all of these people (and had a blast talking to Edmund on Roguelike Radio) but the indie games movement is about more than just a handful of "super indies" and it seems (I haven't watched the movie yet as it hasn't shown in Vienna) that two hours would be long enough to cover a bit more ground than just the (rightfully!) really famous ones.
That said, I'm still happy this movie was made & will go out to see it as soon as I can.
