Board game inspired by Inception



Board game kickstarter:

Inceptor is a board game that takes place in the dream world. The board represents the inside of a dreamer's mind, who is known as the Mark. Each player is trying to plant an idea in the Mark's dream, hoping that when he wakes, he will carry out their chosen task. The key is to make your task seem achievable to the Mark and to make sure he believes it was his own idea from its inception. In order to do this the dream needs to be so real, that when the Mark wakes up, the planted idea sticks and he performs the mission without a second thought.

Unusual retelling of Inception






Cartoon Brew explains:

Wolfgang Matzl remade Inception with vintage paper cut-outs, shot frame-by-frame on his digital camera, for the Done In 60 Seconds competition (where entrants recreate a movie in no more than a minute). His film was one of the 10 finalists in Berlin, Germany.

Link roundup

1. Cute illustration of some puppies.

2. Here's why it's raining in the first level of the dream in Inception:

DEADLINE: How did you explain to them the three levels of dreams?
NOLAN: I told them one of the dream levels is in the rain, one of them is a night interior, one is outdoors in the snow. That meant that even in a close-up, you would be able to tell which level you were in as you cross-cut. They were very aware of the risky nature of the project, but they just got very excited about seeing the film.

1. Why do so many excellent athletes come from small towns? Maybe it's because there's nothing better to do there. Or maybe it's because it's much better not to specialize in a single sport too soon.

2. Highlights from the Inception screenplay.

Inception, Inception, Inception


Inception bears more than a passing resemblance to this Scrooge McDuck comic. You can read it in full at the link. Via.



Calvin and Hobbes also featured multiple layers of dreaming. Via these sites.

Here's a long explanation for why Inception is "about Chris Nolan's anxieties when making a movie, especially one where so much other-peoples-money is at stake."

And here, Inception's costume designer gives strong hints about the plot. Via.
