Sigh...This is probably the definition of an inappropriate post for this forum but I'm posting it anyways. I'm trying to justify it to myself as being something that may be of general interest to the board game geek mind type.

I can even try to suggest a casual link for those interested in such games as Legacy: Gears of Time, Khronos, Chrononauts, or even ... Age of Steam Expansion: Time Traveler. Whatever, that's a weak excuse at best.

Anyways, I stumbled across this short film on youtube a couple of weeks ago. Uploaded in 2011 it has a pathetic 21,000 views. Far too few for my tastes. This is a wonderful use of Time Travel and it deserves an audience.

May I present (Approx 18 Minutes):

Moved from General Gaming to Chit Chat.

(It'll get more views here anyway)

I enjoyed that - certainly deserves more views.

Yeah. It makes me sad. I LOVE time travel in films. This one really hit the things I really like. Paradoxes. Continuity. Things that make your mind go 'boom'.

Yes, there's a number of nitpicks for those that have to dissect things to death (like me) but they can all be forgiven for the final product that was provided.

I really want a feature length film that could expand on this premise. More time travel and more convoluted meshing of times lines. Alas, it's too complicated for mass consumption.
