It looks like JR Ralls and crew have completed their movie adaption of Dark Dungeons, the infamous Jack Chick tract about Dungeons and Dragons. Here’s the trailer:
According to the movie website, the movie is slated for release on August 14. The Q&A on the website is a stitch. Here’s my favorite:
How people have committed suicide due to RPGs?
The American Association of Suicidology has concluded that RPGs don’t play a role in suicide, and the Association of Gifted-Creative Children of California did a survey of all psychological autopsies of adolescent suicides and could not find a single one that was linked to RPGs. However, that DOES NOT mean that it doesn’t happen. For all we know, BIG-GAMING may just be very good at covering them up.
Having helped to run a convention and experienced the diffuse and chaotic world of gaming companies, the idea of BIG-GAMING makes me laugh. Although is does sound a bit like the predictions that some of my friends made when Wizards of the Coast bought out TSR.
