DMAE Film Series 

DMC Theater

LSU , Digital Media Center (DMC), Baton Rouge

7:00 pm

Join the summer crowd at LSU and the local indie game development community to see a FREE screening of the new film Game Over: Rise of the Indies (2015). This screening is brought to you by the IGDA Baton Rouge Chapter as well as the DMAE program and CCT.

“An interesting documentary about the indie gaming scene is out today, called GameLoading: Rise of the Indies. Unlike Indie Game: The Movie, it’s meant to be covering the scene and the rise of independent development over the last few years. There’s plenty of footage of individual stories and how things like the App Store opened things up for established developers to branch out on their own, for long-time indies to have a shot at prosperity, and for people new to video game creation to make and even find an audience for their games…

Its strongest moments are when it shows the genuine reactions and emotions that these developers are facing as they are making these games that they have little clue as to whether they’ll be received well, or even if they’ll be able to pay their bills. GameLoading may be really worth it if you’re looking to dive into what the popular indie gaming culture is all about, or if you are really into it and want to see and hear from notable figures and what they have to say. “ - Carter Dotson - Touch Arcade
