DVD Proofs

2014-11-01_23-15-47_829So earlier this week I got our proof copy of the standard edition DVD for the film!  Everything looks great, and I can’t wait to start shipping them out to our Kickstarter donors.

I’ve also ordered everything I need to start selling them here on the website as well, so look for that coming in a few weeks, I’d say by the end of November!

The Collector’s Edition is also coming along, I’m making some bonus features to go on the DVD, adding some different goodies for people to enjoy.  It should be fun, and I’m hoping to at least have that off to the printer by the end of the month as well, but it depends on how a few other things go.

In the meantime, don’t forget you can get a digital download of the film right now, no waiting!  Just go to http://bit.ly/buyGGmovie!

DVDs Incoming

Good Game SoundtracksI’ve been working the last few weeks on getting everything together for some actual DVDs of the film.  Who knew it was so much work to get DVDs printed?

First up will be getting them printed for our fabulous Kickstarter backers, then we’ll have some standard DVDs for sale followed (hopefully soon) by the collector’s edition that will feature the soundtrack CDs in the picture, along with director’s commentary and some other special features I’ll be announcing soon.

But in the meantime, don’t forget that you can still watch the movie RIGHT NOW online, through eight different streaming services listed here.  We’re also available right now through GOG.com’s new movie service.

DVDs should be ordered very soon, and available hopefully in November for the Standard version!

Good Game premieres as part of Humble Bundle!

Hello again!

This last week, our movie premiered in Austin and also was released as part of a brand new type of Humble Bundle featuring games AND movies.

The Devolver Digital Double Debut bundle features five games and five movies, and you can name your price (it’s a minimum $10 to include our movie) and they’re a pretty great selection of games and movies. You also can designate how much of your money goes where, with the options including two great charities.

You can check out the bundle at their website now. But act fast, there’s less than a week left on this deal!

You can also purchase a digital copy of the film on VHX for $9.95 at VHX.

We’re really excited to be part of the first movie bundle, and I hope it’s the sign of more to come. I’ve been a fan of Humble Bundle for quite a while, so it’s an extra thrill to be working with a company that I really like and admire.

Once you’ve seen the movie, be sure to tweet @ninehourfilms or use #ggmovie to say what you thought of it!

On Tap in Austin: Devolver Digital Turns Up the Heat at South by SouthWest with Jaw-Dropping Indie Games, Indie Cinema Premieres and a Film Distribution Panel Discussion from the Future

- Go hands on with the anticipated Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, catch a worldwide premiere for the remarkable professional gaming documentary “Good Game” and Hear Why Digital Distribution is the Future of Your Indie Film with Devolver Digital at SXSW -

AUSTIN—MARCH 3, 2014 –– Devilishly handsome Austin-based independent games and film publisher and distributor Devolver Digital is going big at South by SouthWest next week with an incredible array of indie games demos, independent films and an in-depth panel featuring the best minds from the games and independent film industries. The panel focuses on the future of indie film distribution, “Can Digital Game Publishing Show Us the Way?” on Tuesday, March 11 at 12:30pm in Room 15 at the Austin Convention Center.

The hotly anticipated PC game Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will be showcased in Devolver Digital’s indie gaming Array of Spectacularness from Friday, March 7 through Sunday, March 16 at booth 145 in the Austin Convention Center. Additionally, attendees can get their hands on Vlambeer’s LUFTRAUSERS, and get bro-y with Broforce and glimpse the complex moral-dilemmas in the upcoming Gods Will Be Watching.

Devolver Films commemorates its first birthday on March 11 with a kickass celebration and the free worldwide premiere of its latest indie documentary, ‘Good Game’ at the Seekret Theater at 7pm. ‘Good Game’ follows the notorious professional Starcraft 2 team, Evil Geniuses, and goes behind the scenes in the ruthless world of competitive gaming.

Since forming at SXSW one year ago, Devolver Digital’s film distribution arm has already seen the release of more than 50 independent films across multiple genres. The team invites SXSW attendees, fellow filmmakers, indie film fans and gamers to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ with them on the infamous RVIP Lounge and Karaoke Bus on Monday, March 10, from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. In addition to drinks, karaoke and general debauchery, Devolver will hold a special screening for one of its most critically-praised films, Let’s Ruin it With Babies, which was lauded by the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Marie Claire Magazine and more that night at a super secret location to be revealed at a later time.

Mike Wilson, co-founder of Devolver Digital said, “One year of distributing great indie films is something to celebrate. We’re fortunate to work with such amazing people every day, and we’re looking forward to bringing more of these passion projects—whether they’re games or films—to bigger audiences.”

Wilson is set to speak about digital distribution for independent game developers and filmmakers on the panel “Can Digital Game Publishing Show Us the Way?” on Tuesday, March 11 at 12:30pm in Room 15 at the Austin Convention Center. Joining him on the panel is Director of Business Development at online direct-to-fan distribution platform VHX Adam Klaff, Portal and Portal 2 Designer Mike Morasky, Co-founder of the Humble Bundle John Graham, and Stephanie Tinsley Schopp, principal at the boutique PR consultancy Tinsley-PR.

About the Devolver Digital Interactive Pavilion of Spectacularness:
• Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number follows 2012’s critical hit and commercial success Hotline Miami with more carnage, distinct visuals and a pulsing soundtrack, all wrapped up in a story that blurs the line between fiction and reality.

• In LUFTRAUSERS, developer Vlambeer marries aerial dog-fighting with a classic arcade style that’s makes being a fighter pilot feel truly badass.

• The highly-anticipated Gods Will Be Watching from developer Deconstructeam promises sweaty palms and furrowed brows as players point and click their way through puzzles that make them confront tough ethical choices.

• In the run-and-gun, side-scrolling action game Broforce, developer Free Live Games introduces a hyper-masculine group of commanders who fight terrorists and free prisoners of war, in the dudeliest way possible.
