Never Say Die!

5. Super 8 (2011) with Jonathan Gilmour and Doug Levandowski

March 17, 2022

We are so excited about this month's movie/game discussion we can't even put it into words. Joining us to dissect and analyze J.J. Abrams' Super 8 are the creators of the Kids on Bikes RPG: Jonathan Gilmour and Doug Levandowski! We tear into "the most 'kids on bikes' movie that ever was" and realize it isn't quite the movie we thought it was. Opinions will differ, friendships will form, and enemies will be made, as we talk about the movie and then come up with some truly interesting ideas on how to run a game inspired by this movie!

What approach would you use to run a Super 8 inspired game? Would your game be centered around a mystery or would you also attempt an emotional journey at its core? Let us know what inspiration this film has given you, or just contact us if you want us to throw some questions toward the creators of one of our favorite games.
