One of my favorite things about the App Store is this massive surge of indie development that has brought us, well, more fantastic games than I could even begin to list. If you haven't heard of it yet, Indie Game: The Movie is currently in the process of sweeping various film award festivals. While it doesn't specifically pertain to iOS development, what I've seen so far seems to perfectly capture the spirit of the whole indie game developer movement that's taken the App Store by storm.

Check out the trailer:

Another thing that's awesome about this whole project is that it features a soundtrack by Jim Guthrie, the same mastermind behind the music of Sword & Sworcery [$3.99]. It seems we've got a ton of Guthrie fans around here (ourselves included), so here's a quick heads up: The soundtrack the Indie Game: The Movie is now up for pre-order on Band Camp. You get four tracks right away, with the rest coming on the official release on May 15th. It's even available on vinyl as a double LP, if that's your kind of thing.

    Pretty blatant ripoff of "Grandma's Boy", which is also a way more accurate/inspiring take on game development.
