After just over a year on the market, true to form, Indie Game: The Movie is getting an expansion pack. A special edition of the film will be released next week, containing hours of new footage and a special look at "what happened next" after the movie ended in 2011.
Indie Game: The Movie directors (who also produced, edited and distributed the film) Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky explain:
The Special Edition is something that we are very proud of and excited for.
Personally, it represents the end of a life-changing, three-year odyssey with this film, and is likely our final word on Indie Game: The Movie.
The Special Edition of Indie Game: The Movie also adds the voices of more gaming developers to the original quartet. More than 100 minutes of new short films have been added, plus new commentary tracks from the directors and the guys at Team Meat.
The standard (expanded) edition of the film will set you back US$15 (also available on Steam) - but if you want to spend a little more, consider picking up the box set version: An anthology of more than 10 hours of Indie Game: The Movie content across three discs, coupled with a stack of artwork and cool merchandise - and it's available now for US$59 on DVD or US$69 on Blu-ray.
Both versions are set to launch from July 15 - check the Indie Game: The Movie store for more details.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
