Hear me out guys. I feel like a movie for Helldiver’s has some potential. Arrowhead could build a Helldiver’s universe and dive into Managed Democracy or it could just be a series of weird dystopian events involving bugs and automatons. Either way with the right care it could make Starship Troopers look like the original Blade Runner. I’m not an advocate for this kind of thing but if they made it feel like Managed Democracy propaganda I feel like it would be great. Imagine General Brasch on the silver screen.

    We live in post ironic times. If you made that movie you can bet that a very significant portion of the audience will take it at face value. I mean, we have people who think this is an unpolitical game when the entire universe is a parody: capitalism, fascism and xenophobia taken to their logical conclusion. It is almost impossible to ignore it yet many people somehow do, and happily drink the kool aid.
