Storyline

Voss is a gamer who is unemployed and looking for work. When a management position opens up at a gaming company, he interviews but lacks evidence of leadership abilities necessary to land the job. Given a week to prove himself, Voss does the only thing rational adult would do; create a Utopian society for gamers. Voss convinces his gaming guild to follow him into the mountains and has Marsha, his best friend, document his abilities. However things get complicated when Shadow Hawk, his gaming nemesis, arrives to over throw Voss' kingdom. Written by Adrian Lefler

Trivia

During the "chased through the waves of grain" scene, actor Brandyn Cross, a LARPer, hit a pothole and lost his prosthetic leg. Fellow LARPer James C. Morris, in the same scene, tripped over the leg, and skinned his knee. As he was wearing a kilt at the time, this resulted in a bloody mess, and he was fussed over for several minutes before he demanded air and sunlight so he could recover in peace. See more »

Great fun
10 January 2012 | by multicowSee all my reviews

A terrific romp into the world of LARPing and tabletop roleplaying. Not only does this give us a tongue-in-cheek view into the art of roleplaying itself, but into the minds and lives of gamers, with a great sense of humour about it.

The characters play off of each other with ease, as if they've been playing their characters for quite some time, and the comedic timing is wonderful.

Matt Mattson is gifted with physical comedy, and I really hope to see him in future films. Jaclyn Hales plays a very believable shy and awkward character, who draws the audience in, and Devin McGinn plays the lead role with such confidence, you truly feel like you're experiencing the story through him.

A great film for all ages, see it if you're able.
