Trivia

The film notes that Super Meat Boy (2010) went on to sell a million copies. The developers, however, note in the audio commentary that only about 25% of these sales occurred on the Xbox Live Arcade. The remaining sales came from the PC version. See more »

Quotes

Edmund McMillen: My whole career has been me, trying to find new ways to communicate with people, because I desperately want to communicate with people, but I don't want the messy interaction of having to make friends and talk to people, because I probably don't like them.

Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky knocked this out of the park. It is a film that follows three indie games at different parts of their development that have a story worth telling.

Indie Game: The Movie so well crafted that my wife (non-gamer, non-geek, but appreciates movies) enjoyed and was interested. The pacing and storytelling invokes a wide range of emotions. The artistic choices of cinematic style are spot on and consistent throughout the film.

The fact that it was mainly done by two people... puts me further in awe.
