My husband and I watched Indie Game a while back. As my gaming days ended with Zelda, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this unexpectedly touching film. I recommend it whether you are into gaming or not.
One of the most basic goals of Energy at the Movies is to remind people how much we depend on energy. Indie Game’s closing scene subtly does just that with a shot of a game controller hanging from a power line. It’s a cool image and, whether intentional or not, a nod to the fact that without electricity digital game development and playing wouldn’t be possible.
