Today we announce that the film is going to be available in gorgeous 1080P Blu-ray! We’ve had tons of requests for this, and always wanted to make it happen. And now we can finally say that yes: ‘Indie Game: The Movie’ will be available in Blu-ray Format.
You can preorder the Regular Edition or Special Edition Blu-ray here. Note: All DVD and Blu-Ray preorders will include a free DRM-free digital download bundled in with the purchase. This will be the case until the physical versions of the film begin shipping.
Question: But wait! I already pre-ordered my copy of the film as a DVD, but I’d rather have Blu-ray! Can I upgrade?
Answer: Everyone who pre-ordered the physical DVD will have the option for a free upgrade to Blu-ray. We will be sending out an email form closer to the ship date of the physical discs. On this form you’ll be asked to confirm/update your address and if you’d like to upgrade to Blu-ray. YOU MUST CHOOSE OR ‘OPT IN’ to receive the Blu-ray. AND, YOU MUST CONFIRM YOUR ADDRESS. We won't ship the pre-ordered disks until we receive your current address.
Question: Will the DVD and Blu-ray editions be exactly the same in terms of content?
Answer: Hopefully, but not necessarily. We are going to try to keep them as identical as reasonably possible. However, much more content can fit on a Blu-ray., and while we are not afraid of doing multiple DVDs in order to match Blu-ray capacity. There may be some extras that fit on the Blu-ray. that won’t find a home on the DVD. We are going to try to prevent this. And we have no idea what the specific feature list is just yet (especially for the special edition, as we are still creating for it). Whatever the end case is though, we’ll likely work out a way that DVD people can catch any content that they miss because of format.
In other words, we won’t leave you hanging :)
Answer: We hope to have the Regular Edition DVDs & Blu-ray will be shipping this summer. The Special Edition has a much more extended and open timeline. It's very much a work in progress and we still have a lot of content to create (not only editing, but we're filming some new stuff as well). We are not putting a date on the Special Edition, but we will be working hard until its done & shipping. But don't worry, we'll be blogging and communicating all through the process, so you'll know what we're up to.
Note: In both the Regular and Special edition versions, we're aiming to have the Blu-ray and DVD will ship at the same time. In other words, there is no time advantage if you choose one format over another.
