This is another video from my new favorite viral series promoting the upcoming feature length documentary Indie Game: The Movie. This episode profiles a prolific gamer Edmund McMillen. He talks about his inspiration behind the game Aether, and how feeling isolated as a child inspired him to create his characters. Directed by James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot this film is a fascinating look into the mind of the indie game creators. They are truly the Harvey Pekar’s and Robert Crumbs of our generation.
