Indie Game: The Movie hits the road, has presents

First Indie Game: The Movie was a hit at Sundance, then it started making its way towards the small screen via a HBO re-imagining, and now it’s hitting the road… to Santa Cruz. Hopefully it will be hitting more roads soon after that, but for now we’ll all just have to head to the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz California on March 2nd (tickets sold here) if we want to watch the movie, hang out with the directors and some of the film’s subjects members (seen above) and have an experience like none other in cinema today. Not coincidentally, March 2nd is also Edmund “Sugarbear” McMillen’s birthday, yet he’ll be the one giving out gifts at the screening, 500 to be exact. That’s why they call him “Sugarbear”.

If that one show isn’t enough for you, get proactive! The team behind the film are still looking for help arranging screenings. Help them out! It’s fun!

Oh, and before I forget, Tommy “Thanks for announcing that you think that I am awesome” Refenes (also seen in the video above) and Shannon from last year’s E3 Wii U coverage will be on this Sunday’s Sup Holmes?, so watch that if you like me and/or those people.
