I haven’t done a documentary in a while and I wanted to definitely talk about this particular documentary that a gamer friend of mine showed me a while back. I am definitely a casual gamer by definition. I don’t spend countless hours honing my skills in multiplayer games developed for the mass market. If I ever play a game, it’s usually one that I can lose myself in from time to time. I love RPGs, mainly because of the investment in development of my character and getting immersed in a world and story. Mass Effect and Borderlands are two that I have been playing religiously as of late, putting in a few hours when I can here and there, but while the mass appeal of those games are great with their big budget productions, I do yearn for something a bit more unique and outside the box. That is where the indie game market comes into play. That is the subject of the documentary, a look into the world of those that communicate with the gaming community through these micro games that buck the big distributors and studios. They find success amongst those that welcome creativity and the development of independent games.
