After several years, and tons of work, I am finally happy to announce that the folks of 2 Player Productions have finally released the highly anticipated REFORMAT THE PLANET on DVD! Watching as this film slowly took shop, to the production, release on pitchfork, and subsequent screenings at places like SXSW was a heartening thing for many in the chiptune and VG inspired music communities. This is because the folks in 2PP have a true respect and love for chiptunes as fans and friends of the sea of people who make up this 'movement' if you will. That love shines through all the scenes through out the movie, and is an encouraging thing to see. Enough about the movie though, as I will be reviewing it in due time. I just have to say that, the movie is out, and includes not only the film, in an all new director's cut mode, but also bonus interviews, discussions, and audio commentary. Not to mention music videos, chiptune making tutorials, and a brand new RTP 1.5 mini documentary following up the original! Needless to say you should be ordering at least the basic package already.
What's that? Basic package you say? That's right. 2PP has teamed up with the folks at Fangamer (the awesome folks who make all that Earthbound/Mother 3 apparel) and created a whole suite of awesome things to show your love for chiptunes and RTP. Just check it out.
We've got everything here. Posters, pins, stickers, and even more DVDs and CDs as well for assorted price points. So remember to head over to the appropriate page and order a copy and then some. Afterwards definitely stop by the newly revamped 2playerproductions.com and let the folks behind the cameras know what you think.
Also, I should definitely mention that, for those who have not had the chance to see the original film at their screenings or back on pitchfork for that amazing week, you can view the main movie, right now in its entirety, over at Penny Arcade TV.
