    Want to help Translate?

    Hi Everyone,  

    We’re reaching out to see if we can get your help to expand the reach of the IGTM - Special Edition.  We want to put the SE out in more languages.  In this wave, we’re looking at….

    Spanish •  Brazilian Portuguese • Danish • Finnish • Icelandic • Norwegian • Swedish
    Dutch • French • German

    If you are a fluent speaker/writing in any of those languages and would like to help out, please give us an email at indiegamethemovie@gmail.com:

    We do have a little bit of a budget for this, so it would not be completely pro-bono work.  Plus, we can always hook you up with any digital/physical goodies from our shop if you’d like.  And, of course, you’d be credited on the translation.

    Thanks & hope to hear from you! 

    -Lisanne and James

    The Loyalty Bundle!

    Just in time for Christmas, we're super happy to be part of something called the 'Loyalty Bundle'.  

    For just $15, you get...

    This is Not a Conspiracy Theory

    Rewind This!

    & Indie Game: The Movie

    OR...

    If you've purchased any of these films from thier websites, you get the bundle for FREE!

    It's  a documentary film bundle that is not only a great deal - $15 for three great films - but also aims to reward those audience members who bought into IGTM and/or the other films in the bundle early.

    Here's how it works:

    1) If you've never bought any of the invloved movies before, purchase the bundle for $15 and enjoy these great docs.

    2) If you've bought either IGTM, 'This is Not a Conspiracy Theory' or 'Rewind This' via VHX.com.  Go to http://loyaltybundle.vhx.tv and claim the films.

    We think it's a pretty cool idea (huge thanks to Kirby Ferguson from TINACT for putting this together).  Hopefully you do to. Check it out here.

     

    Merry Christmas!
