I backed this project on Kickstarter and have to say, I think it was money well spent.
The story is, without spoilers, about a young woman trying to find herself, in the process who turns to a game world enabled by Haptic technology (the users of which are known as Hapheads (per the title) to escape the dull monotonous life that she finds herself trapped in. (if only it was that easy....) But, then, her life becomes far too much like one of the games she had tried to escape into... But, in the real world, you can't simply log off.
I liked this production. It's been noted that this is 'season 1' of the web series, and if that's the case, I'm definitely looking forward to Season 2. As an amateur writer myself, I like seeing these kind of independent projects move forward.
Downsides: As this was an extremely shoe-string budget, the online game perspective could definitely have been done better. Although the texturing seemed good on the 'digital avatars', I found the overall movement of the characters in the game engine the production team used for their 'online game world FX' to be fairly rudimentary. Yet, they did a pretty darn good job with the little flying drone (the design seemed fairly basic, but honestly, I could see it being the kind of thing that i-robot might try to use to make personal service drones to be 'non-threatening'). Makeup team did a good job on post-fight makeup and everything else seemed very believable.
