Saw this earlier today. Bloody brilliant! Fantastic use of sounds from the game. Looks as good as some TV shows. Can't wait for more. I'd buy it on DVD if it was ever made available.

A little note to some people watching it in HD.. Add &fmt=22 to the end of the link to make the video smoother.

This totally caught me by surprise, did you guys know it was made on a budget of *only* $500? Thats alot of borrowing!

Looks pretty good, hopefully it won't get turned into something like Max Payne.

This is actually quite deceiving, while it's true it only cost $500 for what they had, the computer/camera required to edit that video would cost a pretty penny, and aren't exactly equipment that's easily borrowed. Basically someone owns the stuff, or they are borrowing it from a College/University, but even then, you would have to be enrolled with said school.

But yes, it's actually pretty decent, enjoyable albeit a bit cheesy at times.

Movies need more (good)cheesy-ness these days, its been lacking ever since the Terminator took up office.
