Pure Pwnage, a gaming web series before web series were a thing, is set to be released in movie form in a matter of months.
That at least is the view of Joel Gardiner, the actor behind the iconic FPS Doug character which captured so much of what it was like to play first-person shooters in those days.
Speaking to the Daily Dot, Gardiner said:
“I’m not one to speak on the exact plans for the movie release, as that is [co-creators] Jarett [Cale] and Geoff [Lapaire]’s job, but I have seen clips, and I know it’s going to be released within the next couple of months, and I’m incredibly excited and anxious to see what the fans think.
“It was so much fun reprising those characters and getting back into that universe and the pro gaming scene. It’s nuts when you go to an actual pro gaming event now and see just how huge the industry has grown in the past 10 years.”
For those of you who haven’t seen it, here is a teaser clip from the film:
