Indie Game captures the emotional journey of a new breed of struggling independent artists: the indie game designer. Refusing to work for the major game developers, these innovators bet on themselves by independently conceiving, designing, and programming their distinctly personal games in the hope that they, too, may hit it big. The film follows several of these meticulously obsessive video game artists.
HBO and producer Scott Rudin have acquired remake rights to Indie Game: The Movie, the documentary by first-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky that premiered in Sundance on Saturday afternoon. Rudin will develop the film as a fictional half-hour comedy series for HBO and he will be executive producer.
