Indie Game the Movie Gets Special Edition Treatment

by on July 18, 2013

If you loved Indie Game: The Movie and simply cannot get enough of the well-received gaming documentary, then you will be pleased with the news on the film’s official site of a bunch of bumper special editions that are on their way.

It appears that at present the physical versions are limited to US consumers, but the crazy amount of additional content is available in its entirety on Steam. Here is what you can expect from the Special Edition and Boxset packages:

Available on Steam and from our the IGTM website, the Special Edition Digital Version includes:

– 100+ minutes of new short films.
– Epilogues & ‘What Happened After?’
– New Team Meat Commentary (on the short film anthology)
– New Directors Commentary

If you already own the movie, the digital SE is available as a stand-alone pre-order directly from the Indie Game website, or as DLC on Steam from July 24th.
The box set is the full 300+ minute anthology. Contains everything in the digital version plus much more.

Barely fitting into three full DVDs or Blu-Rays, the Special Edition Box Set is housed in limited edition packaging with artwork by Edmund McMillen.

Included in the physical set:

– 3 containing over 10 hours of IGTM content.
– Limited edition packaging with artwork by Edmund McMillen
– A dual-sided poster featuring the original IGTM theatrical poster and a limited edition poster with artwork by Edmund McMillen
– 48 page Indie Game: The Movie notebook
– Indie Game: The Movie laptop sticker
– All editions are hand signed, numbered and lovingly handcrafted by the directors & their tired little hands
– Limited Edition of 3,000 DVDs and 3,000 Blu-Ray sets

Included on the discs:

– Full Theatrical cut of Indie Game: The Movie in 1080P High Definition
– 5.1 Surround Sound Audio Mix / 2.1 Stereo Mix
– Directors Film Commentary
– Team Meat Film Commentary
– Family Friendly Theatrical Cut (Swear Free & possible offending visuals removed)
– Over 300+ minutes of new material.
– 100+ minutes of a new short film anthology.
– Epilogues & ‘What Happened After?’
– Deleted Scenes
– New Team Meat Commentary (on the short film anthology, Epilogues & Deleted Scenes)
– Making Of Featurette: ‘Indie Game: Behind The Movie’
– Discussion and Q&A with the full ‘Cast & Crew’ of IGTM
– Post Screening Director Q & A
– Extended Interviews

As mentioned, it looks like a US-only thing presently, but for those that can import or indeed our Stateside cousins, the special packages will ship in early August, including a free code for a digital Special Edition.

If you stick a pre-order in now, which you can do on the official website, then you can grab the Box Set for $59.99 on DVD or $69.99 on Blu-Ray. This will rise to $69.99 and $89.99 respectively so if you want it, get pre-ordering to save some dollars!
