Indie Game: the Movie, the film that took Sundance by storm, earned a perfect 100 on Rottentomatoes and wrangled the hearts of gamers and non-gamers alike, has finally been unleashed on the masses in the form of a digital download. Earning the honor of being the first movie to ever appear on Valve's Steam game service, Indie Game can be yours for a mere $9.99.
Chronicling the development of indie darlings Super Meat Boy, Fez and Braid, this documentary paints a heartwarming, and sometimes soul crushing, look at what it takes to bring a project from idea to fully-fledged game.
When it wasn't wooing audiences on the film festival circuit, Indie Game: The Movie managed to make an appearance in a select few theaters across the county. Now everyone can finally own their very own copy of the film, and it will only set you back about as much as the games it chronicles.
Powerful stuff, right? In an age when video games are becoming a bigger part of our culture, it's great to see the stories behind these games we so frequently take for granted. Those hours of entertainment likely only cost the consumer a handful of dollars, but the price for the developer could have been years of work, every dime in their bank account and anything resembling a healthy relationship.
If a purchase is in order, you have your pick of Steam, iTunes or the Indie Game: The Movie official site.
