Life Imitates Art - Uwe Boll's First Game

Man with gun in Vietnam. YOU THINK OF A FUNNY CAPTION.

The universe is complete. It’s all about circles, you see. That’s my new bullshit theory, on which I will now build both an alternative therapy and life-coaching courses, at astonishing prices. My proof: Uwe Boll is making a movie – 1968 Tunnel Rats – that’s not based on a videogame. And a videogame is being made of his movie! IT ALL CONNECTS!

This time Boll turns his sensitive, delicate hand to the Vietnam war. And, despite there being very few so far, the reviews aren’t too harsh. Using his familiar tunnels, 1968 Tunnel Rats follows a group of American soldiers as they fight through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Viet Cong. And fascinatingly, there was apparently no script – the film’s dialogue completely improvised by the relatively unknown cast.

And so to the first look at the game:

It looks fine really, doesn’t it? Right now I can’t figure out which developer is making it, which is odd. So it’s hard to tell you any more. I’m also not clear what it is that they don’t prepare you for, unless it’s out-of-control helicopters, which would seem an oversight in basic training. Sadly it’s very unlikely to be zombie Viet Cong hordes, as this seems a pretty straight movie from Boll. We shall see.
