Hey Everyone!

We are super excited to announce something we’ve been working on for quite awhile now:   Indie Game: The Movie - The Special Edition.

The IGTM Special Edition is a an anthology collection of completely new material.  It is the ultimate version of Indie Game: The Movie.  

Through the Special Edition, find out what happened after, discover new stories & developers and dive deeper into the film than you ever could before.

- New Team Meat Commentary (on the short film anthology)
- New Directors Commentary

If you already own the movie, the digital SE is available as a stand-alone pre-order directly from us, the filmmakers now or available as DLC on Steam July 24th.

If you don't own the movie, you can buy both the film and the digital SE content in one whole package directly from us or get the whole thing on Steam.

The box set is the full 300+ minute anthology.  Contains everything in the digital version plus much more.  

Barely fitting into three full DVDs or Blu-Rays, the Special Edition Box Set is housed in limited edition packaging with artwork by Edmund McMillen.

It is a limited edition release, available here.

The Box Set will be shipping early August and includes a code for a digital Special Edition.  If you preorder now, you will receive the Box Set Special Edition for $59.99 (DVD) or $69.99 (Blu-Ray).  Once the SE starts shipping, the remaining editions will be priced at $69.99 (DVD) & $89.99 (Blu-Ray).


There is more information and definitely more to say about the Special Edition, but we wanted to keep this entry somewhat digestible and manageable. 

The Special Edition is something that we are very proud of and excited for.  Personally, it represents the end of a life-changing, 3-year odyssey with this film, and is likely our final word on Indie Game: The Movie.

We worked really hard on it to make it worth the wait and worth the support that you all have given the film over this time.  

We hope you like it.

p.s. Oh!  And tell a Friend!   :) 


We had the pleasure of collaborating with some great people on this project.

The S.E. would not be what it is without the wonderful help, talent and generousity of:  All the developers who shared their stories, Jim Guthrie, Adam Saltsman, Edmund McMillen, Chris Pointon, Sara Gross, Michael Eades & the super awesome VHX team, Matt and the folks at Steam, Raymond Friesen, Elbert Bakker and Troy Giesbrecht at Handcraft Creative, Ryan, Matt and the great guys at Area5, Kert Gartner, Jason Scott & Kym Dopheide.  

We'll talk more about what these awesome people have done a little later, but we could do an announcement without acknowledging their fantastic work.
