Machinima’s ‘Counterspell’ Is A Hilarious Comedy Set In An Old-School Video Game World

Monday 3rd March 2014 by Derek Kraneveldt

Briefly: Machinima is on a roll this week! Just a few days ago they released Game World, and awesome new short by the always-talented Joe Miale, and today they’ve debuted Counterspell, a hilarious animated comedy set in an old-school video game universe!

CounterSpell follows two dungeon mini-bosses who choose to leave their boss fight instead of facing their scripted deaths at the hands of four RPG players. They embark on a misguided evil adventure that will likely doom the world and turn the RPG genre on its head. It’s a ridiculously simple tale, with planty of preposterously funny content through its duration.

The series, which was created by some of the biggest names in the YouTube and Machinima universes, (including YouTube heavyweights MLGhwnt (220,000+ subs), iHasCupquake (youtube.com/iHasCupquake, 1,300.000+ subs), ImmortalHD (youtube.com/ImmortalHDFilms, 650,000+ subs), and Slyfox (youtube.com/xXSlyFoxHoundXx, 1,180,000+ subs), launched its first two episodes earlier today. You can check them out in full below, and we’ll be sure to share more as they’re released!

Be sure to let us know what you think of Counterspell so far!
