Storyline

Ashens' insane fictional search for a piece of fabled electronic tat: the Game Child. Accompanied by fan-favourite Chef Excellence (a human version, not the bloody puppet), together they try to overcome the odds - and all common sense - to lay their hands on the legendary Game Child, an old knock-off handheld video game console. But a shadowy figure, aided by Ashens' irritating nemesis, wants the game for their own dastardly ends. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The titular Game Child is a real device, released as a cheap knockoff of the GameBoy. They aren't as rare as depicted in the film, however. Shortly following the film's release, Stuart reviewed a real one. See more »

Goofs

One scene in the movie is supposed to be set in 1991. However, all the vehicles seen in the background were all produced after 1991. See more »

Quotes

The Silver Skull: Oh, it's Ashens again. Hello, Stuart. Hello? Hello? Ashens, you're arse-dialling me! That is so annoying.

Crazy Credits

Key Grip: Sorry. Actually we couldn't afford a Key Grip for the film so the rest of the crew had to carry all the grip equipment themselves. So anyway, we Wikipeded "Easter Egg", and the term was coined way back by someone at Atari because a game designer hid a secret message in a game. So it's like hunting for a hidden Easter egg. Huh.

From a fan of his youtube channel...
16 July 2018 | by staypuff-589-883937See all my reviews

I really wanted to like it, but there are so many videos made on youtube that didnt cost anything to make, that are way more humorous. Its alright if you like ashens (like I do) but too many jokes are just forced and poorly timed. Most of the actors are not very good, though ashens is the exception in this case. I get some people will like it but giving it an honest watch I just wasnt one of them. Only masterpieces deserve 9 or 10 stars and this is faaar from it so I dont understand the other reviews.
