The Game Chasers’ Motion Picture is a freaking AWESOME fictional adventure following Billy and Jay as they go on the road to track down a childhood gaming relic. If you are a fan of 80’s/90’s road trip movies and retro video games, this movie is for you. It will capture those warm memories you have for gaming and remind you of those good times while making you laugh along the way. This will be a movie you can watch with the whole family. For fans of the Game Chaser’s web series, this is not a 2-hour game chasers episode, it is a feature-length scripted comedy film. However, it will have everything you come to love from the show at its roots, just presented in a new and exciting way! This will be a different format, of course, from the show (which is reality documentary style) But that’s the point, to do something fresh and different!
We’ve had an idea to do a movie for a long time, but it wasn’t until someone approached us with the concept of a scripted comedy that the light-bulb went off. Our original idea a few years back was a country-wide road trip going to flea markets. Basically exactly what we do on the YouTube show, still keeping it a “reality format”, and making it a feature-length movie. And while many might find that idea awesome, I found it boring. It’s the same thing we already do just…..longer. And we have to depend on the chance of actually finding games. You wouldn’t see Mevor, or Dodongo in it because or work obligations as well. For me, that idea just wasn’t exciting. We never pursued it. We never tried to Kickstart it. Maybe we will down the road, but this idea that we have is so much more stimulating creatively for all of us, and a nice breath of fresh air. And the great thing about it for fans is that even though it’s a fictional narrative, it still has the essence of the show. It’s a refreshing take on Game Chasers. And we are super excited to bring it to life and show the world.
