Sur­viv­ing In­die Di­rected by Pixel Po­etry creator Richard James Cook, Sur­viv­ing In­die is a sober­ing ex­plo­ration of the strug­gles faced by in­die de­vel­op­ers in an in­creas­ingly crowded game in­dus­try. The film charts Cook’s own dif­fi­cul­ties as he works on Su­per Com­bat Fighter, and he can­didly discusses the frus­tra­tion of re­jec­tion, ab­sent funds and the time he lost his apart­ment as a re­sult of fi­nan­cial hard­ship, as well as in­ter­view­ing other in­die devs. While oc­ca­sion­ally dif­fi­cult view­ing, in chal­leng­ing the ro­man­ti­cised world of in­die devel­op­ment Cook has cre­ated es­sen­tial view­ing for anyone try­ing to break into the scene.
