Storyline

While the senseless war rages on in the lush and pathless rainforests of Vietnam, the frail bounds between reality and pure fiction warp, as a battle-scarred platoon of American G.I.s find themselves up against an invisible and well-prepared adversary. Witnesses claim that the lethal foe is lurking in the gloomy woods, taking down the men one by one. What horror have the soldiers encountered? Written by Nick Riganas

Gah, i should stop watching those.

It's becoming evident that all the oat studio shorts are attempts at baiting Hollywood, with little in the way of charming its audience. Such a shame as we are his biggest fans. I miss the days of the mind blowing Tetra Vall, which still stand the test of time after 16 years.

Oh and this? It's a cut scene from a video game and not much more, a camera test maybe? In any case it has no plot and no goal, no payout, and no character development. I'm bemused.
