It is a curios thing, watching the teaser trailer for Mutant Chronicles, the movie. The short scenes we see are grey and dark, not much colour left in the world, not much hope. Which is sort of what it should be like, of course.

But I can’t shake the feeling that something is missing, something is very different from when I wrote the roleplaying game all those years ago.

Balance. That’s it.

The movie picks up on the noir elements we introduced to the setting, but it seems as if the counter-balance to this, the garish over the top imagery, is missing. I’ll ponder this while I wait for the release of the movie, and return with a review then. Until then, here’s the teaser.
