After being teased by its first appearance in 2008 during an event and waiting for possible release late in 2009, at last RPG Metanoia, the Philippines’ first 3D animated film will be rolling out in theaters on Christmas Day as an official entry to the 36th Metro Manila Film Festival.

RPG Metanoia The Story

Massively multi-player on-line role playing games, or MMORPGs for short, are all the rage. Create a hero, give it a name, determine its gender, race, skill-set, and you’re ready to go on youur own grand epic adventure. Gain friends, make enemies, go on quests, venture into strange unexplored territries – everything you do, is driven by one underlying purpose: gain enough experience to achieve your character’s ultimate potential.

The irony of it all is that while you’re sitting in front of your computer, doing all these great and unvbelievable things, you yourself gain no real experience of your own, no closer to unlocking your own true potential. Though you’ve leaped through flames, romanced beautiful maidens and slain dragons, in the real world, you’ve still got chores to do, your crush still thinks you’re a goof and the neighborhood bullies still treat you like a door mat. Welcome to Nico’s world.

Nico’s humdrum daily existence simply cannot compete with the fantasy life he leads in the world’s most popular MMORPG-METANOIA! As the swashbuckling vagabond Zero, together with his friends: the enterprising spiritist Mang Ernie, renegade chi-master K’mao, apprentice weapon-smith Sumpak, folk hero Ahdonis, and beast master Cassandra, they eplore Metanoia’s vast virtual landscape in search of untold on-line fortune and glory!

When a malevolent force surfaces and threatens to consume everything they hold dear, the fate of two worlds fall upon the shoulders of one very unlikely champion. One who must first find a way to burst out of his shell and discover the true hero within – before its too late!

The production of the film took for about 4 years to complete and was rendered by 26 great Filipino 3D animators.

RPG Metanoia will feature the voices of Zaijian Jaranilla behind Nico, Mica dela Cruz as May, Aaron Junatas, Basty Alcanses and Jairus Aquino as friends of the main character, Aga Muhlach as Nico’s father who did influence him to play online games, Eugene Domingo as his mother, and Vhong Navarro as the Internet shop owner.

The teaser below was first premiered on the Level Up Live 2008 at the World Trade Center and was incredibly amazed the crowd with wows. Does this indicate to be a box office hit film? What ya think?


RPG Metanoia will produced by ABS-CBN Star Cinema and Ambient Media together with the Thaumatrope Animation Team and directed by Louie Suarez.
