Natural One begins with a summons to Gary from his Canadian half-sister, Monica. She's getting married and family tradition calls for her future partner to be vetted in-game-is he gamer enough to be worthy of the family name?
Humans & Households follows a group of fantasy heroes on their day off as they sit down to enjoy a rousing role-playing game set in a mundane world of traffic lights, errant puppies, indoor plumbing, and other diabolical evils. Written and directed by Gamers creator Matt Vancil, this three-episode miniseries shows us that perspective is everything, with hilarious results.Written by
I play RPGs and The Gamers:Dorkness Rising is one of my favorite movies. Most of the other movies about gaming do not really "get it" at points so I have been anxious for more from The Gamers. Hands of Fate was okay but dealt mainly with card games so it was less interesting. Now, they are back into full RPG mode but in the opposite direction.
Here, we have a "real life" Rogue, Cleric, Warrior and Mage playing fantasy characters. They play a Nerd, Nurse, Jock and Liberal Activist. Seeing how gaming characters would react to things that are ordinary here in our real world is fertile ground for jokes and this movie makes them while also not making fun of gamers.
This was a hilarious movie and I cannot wait for them to make more!
