In this episode, Tracy, Damien and Phil discuss another great selection of recently released films from creators using a diverse range of engines.  Firstly, two films inspired by the recent release of Top Gun Maverick: a British take on the story followed by a trailer of the movie remade in a serious flight sim – to which Tracy asks ‘why?’ and Phil responds with his best Rocky impression.  Then films made in Mech, Star Citizen and Unreal Engine 5 – meantime, the team are expecting good news in the near future (Ricky’s escape from Elden Ring).

The hosts have fun with the Christmas theme in this episode – Tracy starts with a suicide machinima, Ricky gets all Russian, Damien takes us on a very long journey to galaxies far too far away and then trolls us with caroling Jawas and Phil drops an orange into the sock.  Happy Christmas everyone.

In this episode, Ricky, Tracy and Damien discuss a selection of films with the AI known as Phil, whilst the real Phil is off on holiday in sunny New York with his real family.  The selection this month covers the full scale of quality with some raw and experimental machinima work and some incredibly polished machinima, with much in between.  Games the machinima works draw on includes RDR2, GTA5, Little Nightmares 2, Xcom, Mech Warrior, Skyrim, Max Payne and Roblox with a bit of Blender thrown in for good measure.  Enjoy!
