Adam Atomic Talks Canabalt and Indie Gaming [Video]

Adam Saltsman (aka Adam Atomic) is the man behind Canabalt, seriously one of the best "indie games" ever released in the last decade. What's Canabalt? It's a parkour-inspired game where you have to run and jump to avoid obstacles. Actually, the character automatically runs and you only have to press the jump button - or tap the screen in the iPhone and iPad versions.

The following footage was produced by James Swirsky and the team behind Indie Game: The Movie, due out next year. This segment won't be included in the final movie. Check it out below. [Indie Game: The Movie via Engadget]
