TjsWorld2011 first considered plans for a film based on the game in January 2008, when he and Ntpockets had taken interest in watching videos filmed on the game posted on the video hosting site YouTube at that time. They both started up early production for the film that next month in February. Tj said of the idea, "I thought that this would be interesting to do because, well, I felt like that we would be exploring a lot of ideas both associated and inspired by the game that would be in the film. Maybe that would probably help many players of the game who see the film connect with it a bit more.".
The film recieved very positive reviews from critics. Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes has given the film a rating of 81%.
