I mentioned the game-themed movie project "Your Friends Close" a week ago, where I said I hoped it would "become a mix of a (game) designer couple's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf mixed with some Godard and Wes Anderson influences."

The indie movie's writer and director, Brock Wilbur and Jocelyn Kelvin, told me this week that it was a pretty accurate description, so that should make those of you who watch good movies a little bit more excited. Also, Yahtzee Croshaw (Zero Punctuation) and Lisa Foiles (All That, Top 5 with Lisa Foiles) have recently joined the cast, so if you passed on this because of a lack of accents and former child actresses, you have no excuse now.

You can read more about the movie project, which delves into the relationships created through our interactive medium of choice and how it defines and affects real-life relationships, on its Kickstarter page.

Should you decide to pitch in on the Kickstarter, you can count yourself among current backers like Jane McGonigal (Reality is Broken) to bask in reflected glory and all that. Make it happen, so we can finally watch a game-related movie thing that doesn't suck for once. At least, I hope it will be good. If it happens. Which it should.

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...more

The Deer God funded, now coming to Wii U and Xbox One too

Did you get your pledge in for The Deer God? I didn't, because these days I try to severely limit the number of projects I back on Kickstarter, but damn did it look neat -- visually and conceptually. Crescent Moon Games ende...more

Channel your inner rock star and smash up a hotel in Check-in, Knock-out

Breaking other people's things is expensive. I don't suggest you do it unless you have a lot of money. If you have that itch, a better way to live out the fantasy may be to destroy hotel rooms in Check-in, Knock-out. A newly...more
