I actually really enjoyed this movie. As a guy who's of the same age group of the developers featured in this movie, I can say that in many ways, I felt a sort of connection to their journey -- that is, their drive and aspirations as indie-game developers (not that I'm a developer).

As both a kid of the 80's and game-developing hobbyist myself, I found this documentary to be inspirational while my wife found it to be depressing.

If you haven't seen it, I recommend doing so on Netflix, which is where I saw it a year ago.

DLC for a movie... now I've seen it all. Those physical prices are insane as well.

i saw the original indie game the movie, and it sucked, 90 % of the time they only showed the developers of Super Meat Boy and Fez.

15 through steam, 5 if you own the first one, 89 FUCKING DOLLARS FOR BLU RAY??? O.O Jesus. That better have some sweet physical goodies and what not for that ridiculous price.

Ohh yeah, I remember when one of the Meat Boy's dev said Halo is shit, it was too funny. Wonder what they're gonna include this time.

Maybe they will include the amazing full review of Soulja Boy for the game Braid. "It has no guns, no titties..."
