Have you ever thought, “Man, I really want some movies on Steam.” Well, that is sort of a reality now, as Indie Game: The Movie is now up for pre-order on Steam this very second. If you pre-order it before June 12th, you can save yourself one dollar and pick it up the 1080p documentary for $8.99. If iTunes is more your style, it’s up there as well.
If you hate that pesky DRM all those digital stores force on your products, the IGTM site will be offering a direct download DRM-free in either 1080p or 720p for only $9.99. They’ve also just announced that there is a Blu-ray copy for sale. As an added bonus, if you’ve already pre-ordered the DVD version, you have the option of upgrading to the Blu-ray version absolutely free.
It doesn’t seem like it was ever out of the question, but it’s still very surprising to see Steam offering a movie for purchase on their store. It was also brilliant to do so, as anything that is offered on Steam usually benefits substantially. I know I’ll be putting down my pre-order here pretty soon, as I’ve not been able to see the film myself yet. Plus, Steam is just pretty damned convenient.
