The fine folks at Valve have done short films before –including a a whole series to introduce each class– but this is something a little different. The red team find out they only have a few days to live and this is how they decide to spend it. The film is called Expiration Date and you should watch it.
Valve makes a lot of quality games with engaging stories and well drawn characters so it’s not really a surprise that they’ve done the same here. Expiration Date is well thought out and funny and a little sweet. There’s no indication whether this is the start of a series of short films (or that it isn’t) but if that changes we’ll let you know.
