After sharing the “real life Fruit Ninjas” with the world, Kotaku has once again posted an awesome video related to iOS gaming. Some fans of Big Bucket Software’s The Incident [$1.99] that have taken it upon themselves to make a sweded version of the game. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, “sweding” is the art of remaking mainstream films using homemade props and budget techniques.

The practice started with the movie Be Kind Rewind, but has since gone on to become a popular hobby among amateur filmmakers or people who are just plain bored. Typically movies are the basis of sweding, but it can really be applied to anything - even video games.

Going into this, I wasn’t totally sure how anybody could recreate a game like The Incident in real life, given the dozens upon dozens of different kinds of items falling from the sky. But I have to admit, these folks did a bang up job on this. The music just kills me:

Besides this video being pretty hilarious, it also shows - along with the real Fruit Ninja videos - that iOS games have really arrived as a part of the mainstream culture. It always makes me smile whenever I see something related to an iPhone game outside of my normal TouchArcade bubble, and hopefully fans continue being creative and producing amazing things like the above video.

    Just because they sweded an iPhone game doesn't make a video amazing."Dull" seems a better word to describe it.

    • Eli Hodapp

      Take that, TouchArcade!

      • Mark

        I don't think the commenter was intending to slight "Touch Arcade," they were simply pointing out something I thought as well... the video was dull.

    • Hackmodford

      I agree... boring...

  • Noah

    I guess it makes more sense if you know what "The Incident" is?

  • TheLastPixelArtist

    Mildy amusing in that "office email" sort of way.

    "Amazing" ?


  • Xxphish_tacoxX

    Lol I was watching be kind rewind yesterday, what a coincidence

  • Christoph

    you might have added that 'The Incident' is quite a popular game especially on the mac, as it was on of the first games in the Mac App Store...the video was really hilarious, at least for someone who knows the game (and the music :D)

    • Guest

      No, it really wasn't hilarious. A few parts were cute, but otherwise, very dull, and I've fully played the Incident many times.

    • Jared Nelson

      Yeah, Christoph, how many more times do we have to tell you that YOUR opinion is WRONG, and that this anonymous poster knows what you like better than you do?

  • ljr

    Some people just have too much time on their hands.

    (oh - can't forget a comment about the poor landfill, either)

      Especially if they're commenting on a cell phone gaming site 😉

    So all that's left
