Indie Game: The Movie
follows three independent game developers on their journey to complete the seemingly insurmountable task of completing a video game without the aid of a giant studio. Featuring Jonathan Blow (Braid), Phil Fish (Fez), and Team MeatĀ (Super Meat Boy‘sĀ Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes), the film examines the lives and thoughts of these creators throughout each game’s development cycle, all the way to the finish line of public release and critical scrutiny.

Matt caught up with the film’s directors, James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot at the Hollywood Theater following Indie Game’s screening in Portland, OR. They explained how the movie was made, the misconceptions of being a game tester, and the true story behind the question “Why the SNES controller?”.

Finally, thanks to Old Town Computers and Gadget Fix in Portland, OR for all their support.
