Created by Bohemian Innovation, the 99-cent iPhone and Android application is a simple and entertaining game of marbles featuring original music from the film. After beating the game, players are rewarded with a free viewing of “Life is Marbelous” on their phone.
The documentary follows “The Marble Lady” as she shares her million marble collection and takes viewers to the National Marble Competition in rural Tennessee. The film captures a nostalgic slice of Americana and premiered at SXSW in 2008. Adding to the quirkiness, the game soundtrack is composed of 12 original marble songs from Austin musicians like Dale Watson, Scott H Biram, Carolyn Wonderland, Elizabeth McQueen and Kevin Russell of the Gourds.
“After a limited festival run, the documentary went into the vault like most short films,” says Beef and Pie Director Mike Woolf. “But we knew, after making the film, that nothing captures the joy of marbles like playing them. Now, years later, technology has presented us a way to share the documentary by playing a virtual game of marbles.”
Capturing Austin’s creative spirit of gaming, film, and music in one 99-cent game, the “Life is Marbelous” application opens up a unique avenue to bring documentaries to a wider audience while providing a fun gaming challenge.
