Toronto’s video game community will gather this weekend for Gamercamp LV 3, a mishmash of panel discussions, demos, game jams and social events that is growing almost as exponentially as the local community itself. As part of Gamercamp, The ‘Shelf has partnered with Toronto After Dark to present the "Full Motion Video" film program.
Manborg is meant to recreate that VHS tape you once found misplaced in the corner concert film section of a pawn shop. In a world being rapidly flooded with these rehashed nostalgia bombs, Manborg is challenged to represent a new era/aesthetic of re-re-re-rehash, and to be more entertaining than many of the other films in the running. Thankfully for Manborg, it is half man, half cyborg, all Manborg.
