Telling Stories, The Curse of Uwe Boll and the Videogame Adaptation Boom…

In a world where video games and movies often seem like distant cousins, the latest podcast episode from Hype from Outer Heaven (Game Hype’s official podcast) bridges the gap and explores their growing kinship between the two mediums, whilst also reflecting on the relationship’s less than stellar past. With the success of HBO’s The Last of Us and the hype surrounding Amazon’s Fallout TV series, it’s clear that the relationship between these two entertainment giants is evolving.

For years, video game adaptations have been met with scepticism. The challenge of translating interactive experiences into a passive format has often led to lacklustre results. However, as Kyle, Brandon, Caleb and Prince delve into the podcast discussion, it becomes apparent that the tide is turning. With advanced storytelling techniques and a deeper understanding of what makes a game tick, filmmakers are now able to capture the essence of our beloved digital worlds.
