A Locomotive Speeds through a Retro-Future World
West End Hotel room 306. A duralumin suitcase exchanged for your own. A mystery man who calls himself Slowslop. On the table a photograph of scientists.... This is where GADGET begins.
The keywords are INVENTION, TRAVEL & ADVENTURE. You board a train pulled by a streamlined steam locomotive and from the other passengers receive various pieces of information. While making the rounds of seven stations, a museum and an observatory you put together a collection of gadgets.
Directed by Haruhiko SHONO, the creator of Alice and L-ZONE, GADGET is a harmonious combination of luscious visuals and rich sound. It's a world in which a nostalgia for the machine age of the '20s and '30s coexists with a dead-tech vision of the future. A major interactive film experience, GADGET deftly balances the interactivity of a mouse-operated moonwalk in 3-D space with the dynamic power generated by QuickTime movies.
