You read that right: they made a Groundhog Day game. And not only that, but a virtual reality game.
The game, titled Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, is described as a “narrative-driven adventure-comedy” which continues the story told in the 1993 movie starring Bill Murray and is set in the same location.
You can find more info on the game and check out the launch trailer along with a previously released teaser trailer and developer diary below.
For Groundhog Day today, we proudly present — what else? — the trailer for the 1993 Harold Ramis comedy Groundhog Day, which starred Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.
The trailer here comes from the site Trailers From Hell, a site in which trailers for films (classic, cult, and otherwise) are run with some brief commentary wraparounds from esteemed directors or other people involved in the biz. Screenwriter/director Chris Wilkinson (Nixon, Ali) is at the helm here for this one, in which he pokes fun at the repetitive narrative of the film, in which the character played by Murray finds himself having to relive his day over and over again, with of course the typical comedic results one would usually find in a Murray-led vehicle such as this.
Check out the Trailers From Hell version of the movie trailer here below.

Ordinarily, while working on a Streaming Review for Geeks of Doom, I habitually have some form of thought receptacle open and ready for any thoughts or ideas or observations that come to mind. Not so for this week’s review: because Shuffle is a movie that commands your attention from its very commencement.
Brimming full of clues, intense scenes, and pivotal lines of dialogue, the movie immediately magnetizes your eyeballs to the screen and demands continuous focus. This week, this wonderfully produced independent movie tore me away from my obsessive geek habit of prematurely and obsessively overanalyzing and dissecting a film as I view it.
Nevertheless, as mentioned, the movie itself commands your attention from a repeated line of dialogue:
Repeaters Netflix Streaming DVD
Directed by Carl Bessai
Starring Dustin Milligan, Amanda Crew, Richard de Klerk, Alexia Fast, Gabrielle Rose
Originally Released: September 13, 2010
Repeaters is an interesting indie Canadian film dealing with the subject of a time loop, delving into a science fiction realm that touches on a multitude of elements that pivot upon individual choices. Directed by Carl Bessai, the movie is entertaining, with some notable performances (particularly from Alexia Fast) – but the film suffers from the inevitable comparisons to Groundhog Day.
Essentially, the plot of Repeaters focuses on three individuals: Kyle Halsted (Dustin Milligan), Sonia Logan (Amanda Crew), and Michael Weeks (Richard de Klerk). All are recovering drug addicts, remanded into custody in a rehab clinic somewhere in Canada. As they make slow progress, the young former addicts are allowed day passes – but something undefined causes the three of them to live the same day over and over again.
