Indie game: the movie

I watched Indie game: the movie the other day, it is a documentary following the developers of Fez, Braid and Super Meat Boy. The build-up to the release of each game is shown and the intrapersonal struggle of the developers. It is very interesting to hear from the people who worked day and night on something and to see the gratification they get when it is finally released. In the words of Glengarry Glen Ross you have to always be closing. You don’t get paid if you can’t sell a product, which makes it a tough business to be in (good thing I do it as a hobby). If you are interested in independent games, I would definitely recommend the documentary.
