This Short Film Is A Wonderfully Simple Metaphor For Life

'We Go Forward' is a rather beautiful little short film based on the principles of a classic side-scrolling video game.

It turns out that games like Mario actually have more in common with real life than you might realise, highlighting the fact that all we can really do is move forward, while raising the question of what to do if you meet an obstruction.

The short film was inspired by a comic of the same name found on a website called Owl Turd Comix.
