Steampunk Joy for Aether-crazed Girls & Boys…

“‘The Deadliest Game” is proof positive that the only barrier these days to awesome geekdom and heady nerdery is a little bit of cash, a bit of vision and a lot of hard work – it has obvious echoes of the visual style of “Sky Captain & The World of Tomorrow” but a sense of whimsy and affection for retro-futuristic adventure which is all its own.

I liked it quite a lot – why not fire up your steam-assisted entertainment-visualiser and see it for yourself?
