Ashens' insane fictional search for a piece of fabled electronic tat: the Game Child. Accompanied by fan-favourite Chef Excellence (a human version, not the bloody puppet), together they try to overcome the odds - and all common sense - to lay their hands on the legendary Game Child, an old knock-off handheld video game console. But a shadowy figure, aided by Ashens' irritating nemesis, wants the game for their own dastardly ends. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


A location named Sadonion in the film is named after an info-graphic that appears frequently on products reviewed by Ashens on his youtube channel that he's dubbed the "sad onion" due to its resemblance to an onion with a sad face on it. See more »


One scene in the movie is supposed to be set in 1991. However, all the vehicles seen in the background were all produced after 1991. See more »


The Silver Skull: Oh, it's Ashens again. Hello, Stuart. Hello? Hello? Ashens, you're arse-dialling me! That is so annoying.

Crazy Credits

KEEP WATCHING! We have one of those "Easter Eggs" at the end of the credits. It's a bit dark but we think it's quite funny. Also if you keep watching you'll get to see who the Key Grip is! Ever wonder why they call it an "Easter Egg"? We have no idea. See more »

More enjoyable than I had anticipated

More enjoyable than I had anticipated.

I do watch the Ashens YouTube channel, so knew I'd probably like this to some degree after watching. It in fact beat my expectations, as it's a film that I actually had a fun time watching.

Stuart Ashen's acting is better than expected, while Dan Tomlinson makes for a decent sidekick. 'Ashens and the Quest for the GameChild' also features a few well chosen minor cast members too, whilst having noteworthy people like Warwick Davis and Robert Llewellyn appear.

The plot is solid, the pacing is good and it brings humour with it. A pleasant surprise, this.
