Indie Game: The Movie the live experience

Today is something very brief and very different but if you’re in London and have ever been curious about video games, read on:

Ever wonder how video games are made? Ever thought that making an app was easy? Well, you can find out by watching Indie Game: The Movie.

In this fast paced, media centric, start up focused world, the video game industry has spawned a new generation of independent developers that have jumped ship and sacrificed financial stability to go it alone. Indie Game: The Movie is a film about this community of digital artists that not only sacrifice their own money but also their health and sanity all in the name of entertainment.

Indie Game: The Movie is showing at the Open City Docs Festival followed by a panel discussion from Agostino Simonetta (Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited) Andy Brammall (Unity 3D) and other guests and will be chaired by Will Goldstone (Unity 3D).

This onetime event takes place at Darwin Theatre on Sat 23 June at 18.30.

So in tribute of the game and seeing as I had some time on my hands I did some Beat Sneak Bandit inspired nail art. Continue reading
