Yet another #GeekedWeek announcement! This time we have “Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix” which has been created by Adi Shankar – creator of the Bootleg Universe short films. The series is being animated by animation studio Bobbypills and will feature alter egos of Ubisoft characters in a highly referenced homage to the early ’90s.
Creator and executive producer Shankar describes it as “Captain N: The Game Masters but good … or the Bootleg Universe short films without copyright infringement!” It is set in a cyberpunk dystopia in 1992 and blends loads of different animation and gaming styles ‘to deliver a visually distinct nostalgic acid trip’. If you like anime, 80s Saturday morning TV and violent video games then this show is for you!
Netflix are also working on a “Far Cry” series but aside from this fact we have no further information to warrant its own news post!
