Two years in the making, Branching Paths is styled as a "mosaic of the developers, publishers and people who gravitate to indie games in Japan" directed by Anne Ferrero, perhaps best known to game development audiences as the director behind Toco Toco, a webseries documentary about Japanese creatives that has interviewed the likes of Swery 65 (Deadly Premonition) and Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez).
That access is replicated here, with subjects including Yoshiro Kimura (Brave Yamada-Kun) and Dylan Cuthbert (Pixeljunk Series), as the documentary charts the beginning of Japan's flourishing indie game movement.
