World Gone Gamer

There have been attempts made in the past to put the gamer experience on the big screen.  The end result is usually something that mocks the genre without really understanding it.  Now, a true representation of gaming would never make for a mainstream movie, it would hardly make it as a niche movie.  Anything that will have a chance of appealing to folks outside of the realm of gamers is gonna mock the genre to some extent.  I can live with that, I learned a long time ago that laughing at yourself can be healthy from time to time.

Unicorn City appears to maybe have that chance of showing a bit of gamer geek culture, with a healthy dose of parody and inside jokes, to a broader audience.

Unicorn City?  Yep.  Unicorn City.  I know it sounds fake.  Everything about it sounds fake.  But here is the actual website.  And, here is the IMDB page.  So, it is real, but what is it about?

Well, taken from the IMDB synopsis.  Voss entices local gamers to create a Utopian society in an attempt to impress a potential employer, but paradise is disrupted when his nemesis lays claim to the city and Voss’s true love.

I truly hope that this one lives up to some of the hype I am hearing from friends that have seen it.  We all should go see it.  Like, as soon as possible.  If it ends up being just another debacle that does nothing but mock without the love, then I’ll owe you one.
