Indie Game: The Movie

Not bad. The bit about level design for Super Meat Boy was probably my favorite single part, but some of the bits talking about how making a game is about having a dialogue--or at least a monologue--with the player, about connecting and communicating a feeling, were good, too. I felt it was a bit slow in the beginning.

In short, the documentary was the sort of human interest will-they-make-it story that I don't particularly care for--it wouldn't be substantially different if it were about go-kart racing or basketball or opera. It was like a sports movie, but about games.
