More info about the movie

GameLoading: Rise of the Indies, a feature documentary exploring the world of indie game developers – their craft, their games, their dreams, and how they have forever changed the landscape of games culture. Disrupting the big-budget industry, indie games have altered the art form through their innovative, varied and personal games.

The film aims to showcase a wide variety of indie developers behind some of the most important games of the past few years and take a broad snapshot of this diverse, creative community on an international scale.
