Anyone feeling left feeling a little meh by the Team Fortress 2 Demoman video today may find their spirits uplifted by Lit Fuse Films’ incredible TF2 fan-film Ignis Solus. As I observed a while back, Pyro is lonely. So lonely. And this is how he copes with it.
Tragic, witty, beautifully edited and heavy with in-jokes on the nature of multiplayer shooters, it’s billed as the first TF2 machinima – and is hopefully the first of many. I’m pretty sure there’ll be some folks at Valve watching this with great admiration too.
Lit Fuse’s site is (understandably) experiencing heavy traffic and conking out at the moment, but here’s a low-res Youtube jobbie. For a big, shiny HD version – which I strongly recommend – trundle over here.
Thanks to reader Monkfish for pointing this out. YOU DID WELL.
