This movie is nothing but pink-haired hipsters talking about how hard it is for them to get by while traveling across the world on board an exclusive train with their gorillion dollar Macbook in hand. It's fucking laughable how these people think they're some kind of underdogs and saviors of video game industry.
Why was this garbage even made?
um I think you mean "players" anon
"gamers" are fucking dead. they're all misogynistic shitlords who don't deserve to be anyone's audience.
Why are you giving that shitstain of a movie any attention? Nobody else does. For fuck's sake: Huniepop, the overpriced tropical beach bikini DLC set for DOA5 and even that russian Hotline MIami rip-off are outselling it at the moment.
>generic triforce band
yeah. no. that's not a retro guy or girl, that's just someone who's shit's fucked up. lacks an ugly metalcore haircut and you've got the whole picture.

What did Zoe do to be called a game developer? Making an interactive novel in fucking Twine makes you valuable and well recognized game developer? I mean she does paid talks about game design yet she has only made a shitty novel "game" in an engine which requires literally zero coding.
Why can't these so-called indie devs dress normally and act professional instead of just plastering themselves with anything they find in their local thrift store? Do they honestly believe higher-ups will want to hire them to work for them if they come in to work looking like pic related?
Rich white kids don't need video game employers hiring them because they make "video games" to be as trendy and artsy fucking possible to their circle of like-minded, faggot friends. video games are nothing but a means to an end with these trust fund babies.
I normally hate these "hey let's bash some people (not even a game) that we don't like" threads, but this shit really incensed me.
The indie scene has gone from the days of assembling a crew and getting shit done for the love of it, to now focusing heavily on the monetary aspect, which absolutely crushes the whole fucking spirit of indie games. Making a game because you want money or to convey some bullshit about the human condition is stupid, and it is the exact opposite of what led to the likes of DOOM and Cave Story.
tl;Dr fuck these guys, make games cause you love em, don't expect monetary compensation.
Fucking dropped, one of the most disgusting things for me.
makes sense that a SJW freakshow like him would be actively working against online anonymity.
So here's a question.
How many of these indie devs are doing what they're doing because they actually love videogames and have a passion for them, not because they want attention and to be given street cred for being such a le gamer xD?
She's in the movie to show the "haters" was up. She's sitting comfortably in the role of an underdog, like many attentionwhores on the internet. No she doesn't know shit about programming, nor art, nor writing.
She's an artist~~ and a creator~~ and she deserves the $4,174.00 a month she receives.
These people can't make games like Mount & Blade or Dwarf Fortress. Look at Nina Freeman, she's a fucking English major who makes shitty 5 minute 2deep4u games in Flixel and goes around giving talks about women in the gaming industry.
There are AAA developers, then there's amateur developers. Then at the bottom of the barrel there's these indie pink haired pixel platformer cunts.
Yeah, like talented programmers are gonna make for good interview material...these people who were interviewed were just the ones in charge of whatever projects involved in and/or the "marketing" people. They know what to say to make their interviews and the movie itself seem interesting. Programmers would likely just stutter a few lines about how hard they worked to implement the indie hipster's vision of a new/unique game.
I actually would like to see a gaming documentary from the bottom rung's perspective. Devs, programmers, QA people, playtesters, maybe some concept artists to talk about how the games they worked for changed so much during the development time. It would probably serve to emphasize how so many smaller projects fail because the people in charge just had an idea and had no idea how difficult/costly/unrealistic it would be to put into a game.
>not because they want attention and to be given street cred for being such a le gamer xD?
They don't care about
They care about money!
The fact their audiences feeble minds are easily manipulated by cheap gameplayless titles and the "artisic vision" is no skin off their nose
Survival of the fittest anon, Survival of the fittest
The fact that they even have the option to go into indie game development means they're incredibly privileged. Anyone who isn't aware of that is totally delusional.
And I'm sure their little movie is awful, but there's no sense it bringing more attention to it. Just let them have their little circle-jerk. There's nothing more you can do.
This is why people were so quick to latch onto the idea that she got special treatment from her friends in the industry. There really isn't a legitimate reason for her to be well known as a game developer.

bravo steam, movie fucking rental service
watch out blockbuster, gaben and the indie clique are coming for you!
there's that word again.
stop trying to oppress me!
why are indie devs almost always either self righteous assholes that can't stop playing the "waah I'm the underdog give me all your money" card or recluses who just want to make a game but be left alone?
>there are still people who read Gamasutra
I havent watched this piece. But i wonder why would any film maker about indie games would put someone like zoe quinn in it. She didnt make anything worth talking about or anything thats relevent to indie gaming scene.
Hotline Miami, Binding of Isaac, Shovel Knights. These are the people that made quality titles worth hearing about. Not this selfpromoting circlejerk from the looks of it.

How long until they fall?
Even movies can have strategy guides on steam:

>multiple characters unlock as you reach certain benchmarks in the "game's" story
>negative review by etienne_boisset
>"Fine indeed , very extraordinary! Gross, unallowable yelling scenes … but untold rigging goes easily. Rare selfishnes and nasty dastardness forever. Rising indies entertain snails."

>check the first letter of each word, f, i, v, e…
Compared to what people who work in big companies have to deal with there is absolutely no or very, very litttle pressure you would get for displaying such behavior when you are independent in the world of media. There are no higher ups and most people publish via online platforms. Then there's also the whole cultural white people hipster aspect to this situation but that's a whole different story.
free food? nah
a free ride on zoe? maybe.
nice female hands are my fetish, and short bnails with chipped polish are goddamn gross for me, itf female equivalent of neckbeard and veiled threat of poop jugs. Yeah, I'm prejudiced. Also your webm almost costed me a dinner thx m8.
Japan really only panders to who will give them money, which is partly why there are so many weeb games out there
Some of the European devs turn into greedy fucks after their first success, so we only have the few European and American indies that aren't like the rest...but it won't last long. We've almost lost Wayforward to the AAA mentality.

Prefacing this review with the fact that I've written a handy guide here ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/357460/guides/?browsesort=mostrecent&browsefilter=mostrecent&p=1&numperpage=9#scrollTop=0 ) to prove I've actually watched the content in case of any sync errors with steam showing 0.0 hours played.
Gameloading is a very frenetic, hard-to-watch documentary about a specific clique of game developers that identify as "indie," but are actually very interconnected with one another.
At a run time of 1:33 including the credits, this film skips between over 34 interviews, but spends only meaningful camera time on a select few. While industry veterans such as Jon Romero and Tom Hall are a welcome addition to provide their insight, they have less than 2 minutes of cumulative screentime in favor of a sea of pink-haired hipster 20-somethings complaining about how poor they are despite toting Macbooks across the U.S.(and in a few cases, the Atlantic). There's a clear narrative goal that is contradicted by the obvious facts and environments these globe-trotting trust funders inhabit.
What's worse is there's a call-out to Kickstarter backers in the credits, so on inspection the movie was backed there for over 100K, and they're STILL asking for $9 a head on Steam? Truly atrocious. I feel like I've learned nothing, was bombarded with unlikable negative personalities for 90 minutes, only to see them get rewarded with millions of dollars in the end for failing out of film school.
If you saw that Indie Game movie on Netflix, just save your money and watch it for free somewhere else eventually, it's as empty and pretentious a film as the Stanley Parable, but without the interactivity.

What you described is word-for-word the entire double fine adventure documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVwg-9WL3dE&index=2&list=PLIhLvue17Sd7F6pU2ByRRb0igiI-WKk3D
with the people in charge failing and all
I wonder would they discriminate an average guy with average looks.
Nothing like a thick girl riding you bruh those thighs around you.
God damn when they ride you, you really fucking feel that shit. Your dick always ends up going really deep and they tend to have the warmest wettest pussies.
But I still wouldn't touch Zoe Quinn with your borrowed dick.
>the overpriced tropical beach bikini DLC set for DOA5
I regret nothing.
That Nina chick is an absolute qt though.
Don't know if I'd be able to stand by my morals of she grabbed my dick tbh
which would never happen anyway because I'm an ugly cunt but whatever.
Remember when the Stanley Parable had some sort of imagery that offended SJW and the dev changed it within a day despite many people protesting the change?
This makes it pretty clear why that happened.
I don't she takes free rides anymore. She had to get someone to foot the $3,000 bill to get a congressional briefing.
I can't help bros, I simultaneously hate these cunts with pink hair and shit while also finding them attractive and wanting to bang the living fuck out of them.
Fuck my dumb dick.
What's the warning? "Don't fuck this, it's fucking insane"?
Say what you will about Phil Fish, he's at least come out with a game
that's pretty good by my reckoningand worked on a bunch of other games at Ubi Montreal back when they were good.
As much as an asshole he is, what little he's contributed much more to the game's industry than anybody in that movie.
christ why do you have to make it so fucking cringe
>What to make an indiegame
>It's saturated with so many of these faggots
>If I try to accumulate man power for larger projects I'll have to deal with these people
>My game might not even be recognized because of these people.
>I don't believe games are "art".
Just fuck my shit up.
I saw this on steam and thought it was a game. Didn't bother clicking because I saw 'rise of the indies' and immediately thought 'piece of shit pretentious game.'
Glad to see I was right, only it's just a "documentary" instead of a game.

How did it get this far
Super Meat Boy was pretty awesome. Didn't try to be some arty farter feels bullshit, just a straight up balls to the wall fun as fuck little platformer.
Fuck Braid and that pretentious prick though.
Are you seriously making a game? Do the smart thing

Besiege has sold nearly double what Gone Home has and it isn't even finished.
Don't let the disproportionate attention these hipster games get delude you into thinking that they are some monopoly.
If you make a fun game people will buy it, these art faggots don't buy games.
The indie scene is tainted. It will be impossible to get team members who aren't autistic, rainbow haired faggots who think they're making an art statement.
It's nothing more than a massive hipster clique and it's gobbling up all the amateur fags with any coding skill.
I can't wait for the death of this trend
It was made for you and everyone on this board to get mad and talk about. Positive or negative, your anger validates its existence. If you saw it, it was made for you, if you heard about it, it's because the system delivered it to you knowing it would be relevant to your interests.
In this case "the system" refers not to Illuminati bullshit but just the...well, I guess you could call it "emergent gameplay" that arises from everyone on the internet doing what they want based on what they think their audience wants from them.
In this case, OP wanted to start a thread and knew everyone on this board would have something to say about this movie.
The movie was made because they knew it would create buzz and attention and lo' and behold.
You want this shit to stop, hide and filter. Or better yet, don't even start threads about it. This site gets whatever the fuck absurdly high number of page hits an hour, so threads like this isn't helping.
Or maybe everyone here wants threads like this so that there's something to feel good arguing about. Doesn't it feel nice typing out long ranty comments about how "pink haired san fran hipsters don't know shit about anything?" Feels like you know better than them, huh. Which is why any time one of them says something on Twitter, everyone will complain about it, and scum-tier gaming sites will pick it up and make stories about it, and roll in the pageviews. This stereotype, this movie, this idea of "clueless san fran hipsters" is being invented and sold to you and you're eating it up.
>TFW have dark red hair
>literal faggots and landwhales always talking to me about the latest social issue like we're supposed to be friends and then eventually begging me to tell them what dye I use when I'm just trying to get into and out of college as fast as possible to avoid as much of the SJW shit as I can so I can start a normal career and then eventually use my clout to crush people exactly like them.
If I crack even a little I'm going to blow up and reveal my entire power level and get expelled. This is hell on earth.
Don't even try to reason with these people. If the mods delete this, they'll say they're being censored by the SJW mods. They'll just keep shitposting because they have nothing better to do with their time.

knowing that, all the positive reviews must be tagged as funny then, eh?
only from the front
jewish women are little hobgoblins
I have, but they're all ideas guys.
I don't want to make a touhou inspired tank RPG, which wouldn't be half bad if they guy didn't insist on using stolen (his favorite booru) designs for the characters.
I thought she was wearing a sweater
God damn it anon
She was still a part of that sub forum that harassed a girl that eventually committed suicide from it.

Tell me /v/
Who are the real racists, those who wish to hold everyone to a higher standard or those who claim that other races need "special" treatment?
Notice how every one of these threads invariably devolves into "conservative vs 'hypocritical lefties'" and it's all based on media-manufactured stereotypes.
It's one thing that tumblr is full of special snowflakes, but it's another thing when tumblr's user-defined and unless you follow someone who's batshit like this, or are the sort of person who follows the sort of people who follow batshit people, you'd never run into it. But how many other sites drive their traffic through the "look at how batshit tumblrinas are!" stereotype?
A friend of mine's girlfriend is a batshit tumblrina. I blocked her. It's as simple as that.
I would have never heard about this movie, Zoe Quinn wouldn't have been any more than some person on Twitter, Anita would have been just like any other chick with a youtube channel and an opinion that you've never heard of, if this site didn't have such a huge userbase that doesn't realize that any publicity is publicity, ranting and raging about this shit left and right.
>just post CP shitstain, atleast we get something out of it
you'd enjoy that wouldn't you
