GameLoading – Rise of the Indies explores the new global subculture of independent game development. In the spirit of movements such as the French New Wave and the Punk and Grunge scenes, hundreds of indie auteurs are emerging and finding success with their own unique voices and artistic goals.

Much like the music and film industries before it, the medium of video games is currently undergoing a monumental shift. The traditional model of large, faceless corporations developing generic, blockbuster action games is being disrupted by independent game makers creating innovative, personal experiences.

GameLoading aims to capture this exciting moment in time, taking a personal and holistic look at the passionate people expressing themselves through video games and, in the process, creating an international community dedicated to developing the culture of the medium.

The team secured funding for the primary film shoot through a successful Kickstarter campaign in mid-2013, after which they spent three months visiting eleven cities in five countries and shot dozens of interviews.

The project is currently in post-production and this second campaign, which ends October 22nd, will fund the final push. Your support would be appreciated.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
