Indie Game: The Movie Special Edition runs to three discs, available as DLC

If you have 300 minutes of your life to spare (that's five hours, unless I've broken maths again) to devote to Fez, Super Meat Boy and Braid, you should probably pick up the new Special Edition of Indie Game: The Movie.

Due on July 24, the anthology collection packs in more than 300 minutes of all new material - including 200 minutes of never before seen footage. It's basically an extra three films, and tells stories from before during and after he development of the three featured games.

Just like Street Fighter and the like, the Special Edition has made itself available in three flavours - as DLC for those who already own the original film on Steam; in a digital bundle with the original film; and in a special, all-new boxed set packed with goodies.

The Special Edition Digital Version is $5 on its own or $15 with the original film, and can be pre-ordered now. It includes:

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

The limited edition boxed set contains "everything in the digital version plus much more".

  • Three discs 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

And the discs include:

  • 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

The boxed set will ship in early August and includes a code for the digital version. It will be priced at $70 on DVD or $90 on Blu-ray, but pre-orders save $20 on both versions.
