Indie Game: Life After lacks content
10 September 2016 | by linusferrisSee all my reviews

I actually loved the original- Indie Game: The Movie. It discussed the struggles that developers embark on when initialising development on ambitious indie games. This however, had no problems. The indie developers were happy with their games, and that's really it. Phil Fish's story in the original was incredibly entertaining because of all the problems he had at PAX. This however, just felt like a big gloat and that's it. Nothing new to add to the table, nothing to say. Just the developers winning awards for their work. No complications or anything. They obviously deserve the awards they receive as they faced extreme agony when facing the release, but this shouldn't have been a documentary release.
