Valve's New Project Is A Dota Doc, A MOBA Movie

'Whatcha thinking about?' 'Dota 2'

A Valve film crew spent the lead up to last year’s debut Dota 2 tournament, The International, following some of the participants as they prepared for the biggest e-sports tournament ever. The result: a documentary about how they managed to overcome the odds and make games their livelihood. You know, I think they deliberately chose those with a slightly tough background to make it interesting. It’s like Rocky, but with games. Now we all know the best Rocky is Rocky 3, because it has Mr T and Hulk Hogan. Rocky 3. Thu-ree. And what game are we all really waiting for? That’s right, Half-Life 3. So we can take from this that somewhere in the trailer for the Dota 2 is the reveal of HL3. Get pausing.
It’s basically a lot of parents pointing out how games will never be a job, and some nice camera work and inspirational music. This is why I’m not a film critic, btw. I give the graphics 100 and the sound 99.

I’m sad that the movie wasn’t done Aardman style, with Source Filmmaker being used to animate Dota 2 characters. This was the ‘non-gaming project’ that they were talking about last night on GT.TV. You can see the full episode below.
