Keep these Overwatch animated shorts coming

‘Recall’ is off to a good start

Blizzard is producing a number of animated shorts for its team-based shooter Overwatch and this one, “Recall,” centers on Winston the scientist gorilla. If you’re expecting there to be an origin-story flashback showing him as a big-eyed baby, you’re not wrong. Awww. I can’t stay mad at you.

Also, before you put in the effort to freeze-frame every character shown at the end, Foxnos on reddit has captured those snapshots for our convenience. You can find the full album over here.

I’m eager to see more of these. This out-of-game storytelling approach worked well for Valve with Team Fortress 2, and I’m expecting a similar outcome here. There’s also a graphic novel in the works.
