Our last episode of 2022 is Damien’s Pick of the Month, The Darkside EP1: Chrome Armor by Scott Barrett, released 22 October 2022. This is a shining example of Star Wars fandom at its best, a la Rosencrantz and Gildenstern Are Dead with shades of Red Vs Blue in the mix. Its made in Unreal Engine 5 and has some excellent mocap although how the armor has been applied, we’re not too sure!
