Indie Game: The Movie accepted to Sundance

Annual independent film festival selects game-based documentary for its 2012 lineup of in-competition films to be screened.

 

The Sundance Institute, founded by Robert Redford in 1981, holds the Sundance Film Festival each year to celebrate the best of independent filmmaking. However, next year’s edition of the show will feature one film celebrating the best in independent game development.


So who’s going to make Indie Game: The Movie: The Game?

The Sundance Institute announced its official film selections today, revealing that the much anticipated Indie Game: The Movie will be screened and in the running for the World Cinema Documentary Competition. The film looks at the craft of creating an independent game and highlights Super Meat Boy creators Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, FEZ creator Phil Fish, and the “surprising story” behind the success of Jonathan Blow’s Braid.

Indie Game: The Movie comes from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada natives James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot. The two filmmakers spent a year following the stories and people behind indie games from across North America. The film’s soundtrack comes from Jim Guthrie, the composer for Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP on the iOS. Indie Game: The Movie was funded by two campaigns on crowd-sourced funding platform Kickstarter that raised a total of nearly $100,000.

The 2012 Sundance Film Festival takes place January 19-29 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah. Indie Game: The Movie is up against 11 other films in its category.

Battlefield 3 hits 8 million in sales

EA has revealed that the military shooter has sold roughly 3 million more units throughout the month of November.

 

Last month, DICE-developed Battlefield 3 became EA’s biggest day-one shipment, shipping 10 million units on the game’s October 27 launch day.

While the game’s week-one sales of 5 million units weren’t quite enough to best the efforts of Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which sold 6.5 million units in the UK and the US in its first 24 hours on sale, updated sales figures show that Battlefield 3 is continuing to sell well post-launch.


Battlefield 3 has sold 8 million copies to date.

During an investor presentation today, EA CFO Eric Brown briefly addressed Battlefield 3’s current status, revealing that sold-in numbers (games shipped) now stand at 12 million, while sold-through numbers (games sold) currently stand at 8 million units.

The news follows the recent class-action lawsuit filed against EA over the publisher’s recent decision to renege on an earlier announcement that the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 would come packed with Battlefield 1943. EA has since announced plans to make good on that promise.
