Enjoy Digpex Games’ Big Hollywood Blockbuster!

One may still wonder why Digpex Games, the alleged developer of Skate Man Intense Rescue, would be so stupid as to try to silence Jim Fucking Sterling Son with a limp YouTube copyright takedown strike. However, one need only watch Clones in Action, the studio’s short film debut, to understand it all – whatever homunculus is in charge of all this is simply no stranger to abject humiliation.

There are thematic similarities to Skate Man – this digital movie features pre-packaged assets for character models and environments, while all dialog is delivered by text-to-speech programs. It appears Digpex is committed to never working with real human beings, which makes sense – it’s likely Digpex is just one guy who literally doesn’t know anybody.

At any rate, it’s a fascinating little film. The plot is hard to follow, but I think a girl promises she won’t be a stripper anymore, then starts dancing, before aliens come and take over the Earth. A guy does a slow-motion backflip and another guy – or the same guy – jumps through a car, which destroys the car. Also, the stripper is apparently a changeling, as her size relative to other characters changes immensely during her hot, Jessica Alba-rivaling dance sequence.

The best bit is when an ice-cream cart smashes over a dude’s head and shatters like a porcelain dish. That’s how reality works.

“I have been dancing all my life but if you do not want me to be a stripper I will stop it for you. I will work there only for this week and I will stop I really want to be with you”

That’s a speech from the film, presented with all the punctuation it deserves.

It’s a fascinating glimpse into the mind of somebody with no shame. From the gibberish lines to the literally impossible fighting physics, it’s got everything you could dream of. The plot hangs on by the barest of threads, and even while watching key scenes again, I’m not sure I can begin to fully understand a single bloody thing in it. Almost everybody is bald.

The only thing I know for sure is, and I quote, “At Queen Ribi place her two clones and her army wants alien clone living as man capture dead or alive.”

Sounds intense!

And then there’s whatever the fuck this thing is supposed to be.

Digpex promises that an extended version of this movie is coming soon, in glorious 3D! “Soon” may be a relative term, however, given the fact that iClone in Action was published in 2010. I am glad that a random person on my Ask page sent me the link though, as it really does explain a lot about the studio, the way it thinks, and its alarming obsession with dudes in bodysuits doing backflips.

I hope it gets a Blu-ray release.

That was simply brilliant … those guys are going to be the next Industrial Light & Magic / Pixar. I can’t wait until Disney buys them out and they start doing full length feature films.

Oh, DigPex, welcome to the internet,
if you can’t accept the critiques and you try to silence them,
Ya fucked mate.

Great movie. It doesn’t spell everything out for the lowest common denominator like all these mainstream Hollywood flicks.

It really fascinates me when a project is so bad, it’s entertainment lies mainly within the psychological profile you build in your head about the creator. *cough* DavidCage *cough*

He can’t issue a take down notice. I suspect Jim embedded the youtube player, which means that Digpex would have to remove the video from his own youtube to make it disappear here. Jim isn’t using his copyrighted material, he’s actually pointing directly to the original. The images are certainly copyrighted, but sadly for Digpex, it’s on Jim’s page – which would require some legal action on his part to compel Jim to remove it. At which point, a court would decide if indeed Jim is breaking copyright law by using the images. Since fair use allows for using copyrighted… Read more »

By the law of all Indie Devs are misunderstood, special little butterflies, I must proclaim this to be one of the greatest movies of all time. The artistic vision , the writing and the monotone “voice acting”! Everything is there that needs to be there. Nothing is wasted. Not like that piece of shit Dark Knight movie! THIS is what Batman should really be! Also I’m pretty sure its the best horror game ever made; the dread and sense of the unknown. Why are the aliens here? Why is she a stripper? What are they saying? Gives me the shivers,… Read more »

Are we 100% sure this isn’t some sort of piss-take, parody project cobbled together by an obscure yet ultra hip Japanese design/fashion/game studio?

Because if I find out it is and I have to change my opinion and tell people that it is in fact cool but they just don’t get it, then I’ll be… well I’ll be very cross indeed Jim.

Ian Chamberlin

See, now I was wondering as well if it was some kind of parody. I’m thinking no, especially with the take down, and this coming out years ago. That’s kind of a long con. It’s also not all that funny…for every part that was funny-bad, there were four that were just plain bad.

I wondered that, and decided that once you’re issuing copyright strikes, it doesn’t really matter any more whether you’re doing it “satirically.”

Maybe Jim’s interaction is what was needed to complete this as some kind of art thing or statement or something.

It looks like a piss take to me.

The fuck? My favourite part: the slow-motion replay of the dude jumping onto the hood of the mirror-painted car. I owned a Volkswagen beetle when I was sixteen, and always wanted it painted to look like a mirror. Alas, the best I could find was getting the whole thing chromed, which was very, very cost prohibitive. Wait, that has nothing to do with this video. The idea of the slo-mo replay in a movie is fascinating to me. Slow motion in a film? Sure, happens all the time. But a REPLAY? And not even the triple replay that Van Damme… Read more »

That was my favourite part too. Like, the delay between the jump and the car’s reaction was so obvious… and then to slow it down so you really notice…!

That was very good, but I’ve got a particular fondness for the bit where the marble sculpture of a hot dog stand gets kicked and shatters into its constituent rocky chunks. Subtle, and quite unexpected.

If Digpex was all an art project about deep, multi layered meta-irony would that make it better or worse?

Better but people not being able to “get the joke” as it were would likely make it not very good anyway.

After looking at the other “content” on this bozo’s channel, it seems like one of their members (if not all) is from somewhere in Africa, based off of this video in particular: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Flxrcbb4Mn8

An interesting facet of that video was that the guy, despite the thick accent, spoke excellent English. Not quite sure what to make of this, but it’s strange considering the response Digpex shat out to Kotaku during their interview with Jim looked as if it had been cobbled together through Google translate . Weird….

I hope it has 4D enabled so I be awkwardly shaken around like the animations depict.

Isn’t time the fourth dimension? If so, does that mean that, after watching this enough times, the film will rip you from the space-time continuum, forcing you into an parallel universe where it is considered a masterpiece?……..yes, yes I think it does.

I know for a fact film critics will slander this, and being in the film industry, this will backfire harder than what he has done to you. I can respect them for trying the best they can, but the lack of self-awareness is a damning thing that will only end in tears.
