What if all videogame characters came to life? Awesomes, that's what. Imagine having to dodge Combine on the way to work, or high-fiving Sonic while waiting for the bus? Life would be unquestionably better. This is the subject of a new 18 minute short film by The Seakitten Collective - a Belgian couple who create their own special effects - called Cloverbrawl. You can find it below.
Spotted by Joystiq, the film begins with a Cloverfield-esque group watching James Cameron's speech at this year's E3 and thus entering the obligatory coma. Until Mario shows up.
It's packed with smart ideas and plenty of gamer in-jokes. Do watch.
