In The Dudleys! A Family Game, family memories are brought to life as a malfunctioning 8-bit video game. Vic returns to his childhood home late one night and discovers his old NES. As he plays vintage games from his youth, he starts remembering…and his memories become the game itself. By dodging ghosts, undying zombies, and evil Aunts side-scrolling through the neighborhood, Vic tries to win a game that might not be for winning.
The Dudleys features original chiptune music composed on an Atari, Commodore 64, Gameboy, and Nintendo as well as original life-size 8-bit video footage.
