Apparently, it’s not just games getting DLC these days. Movies about games aren’t safe either.
I say this because the excellent Indie Game: The Movie has announced the 24 July release of a Special Edition version, costing $14.99 and boasting a 100-minute short film anthology, epilogues and tales of what happened after the close of the movie, stories about more game creators, and a Team Meat commentary.
In what way is this DLC? Well, if you already have the film, then you can upgrade to the Special Edition for a mere $4.99. Sounds like DLC to me.
Alternatively, you can plump for the limited editions on disk, in which case you also get a poster, a notebook, and a laptop sticker. These versions are truly limited (there are only 3,000 DVD and 3,000 Blu-Ray editions being made) and, as such, they’re also signed by the directors. Pre-ordering the DVD version will set you back $59.99 while the Blu-Ray version will set you back $69.99, but once they’ve been released, those prices will change to $69.99 and $89.99 respectively.
Indie Game: The Movie is a wonderful little documentary charting the trials and tribulations of three sets of indie game developers as they struggle to get their games – Super Meat Boy, Fez, and Braid – finished and released, while dealing with all sorts of problems and crises. Happily, it’s currently in the Steam sale for a mere £2.09, and is also part of this week’s Humble Weekly Sale. If you haven’t seen it, you’ve got no excuse now.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
