Dimension 20 just unveiled an action-packed trailer for its upcoming 80s action movie RPG season: Never Stop Blowing Up. Coming real soon.

Dropout is a real game changer in the streaming media world. And while its various shows might make some noise on the comedy scene, the thing that got me to subscribe in the first place was Dimension 20. All of Dropout is amazing, I absolutely love what they’re doing. But Dimension 20 has a special place in my heart.

And for good reason. It’s one of the swingiest actual play shows out there right now. With production values that get better and better, and a penchant for branching out and/or homebrewing their own game systems when needed, Dimension 20 can often catch you by surprise.

Take their newly announced series: Never Stop Blowing Up. It’s a parody of and immersion within an 80’s Action Movie, played using a homebrewed version of Kids on Bikes.

Dimension 20 Will Never Stop Blowing Up

Bear witness to Never Stop Blowing Up. In it, a bunch of people watch a fateful VHS tape and are pulled into the world of an 80s action movie, complete with explosions, badass one liners, and motorcycles with katanas attached to them. What more could you want? How about an increasingly battle damaged and unleashed Brennan Lee Mulligan running a homebrewed Kids on Bike hack for this fast, frenetic ride?

How about a cast of characters that includes: Ally Beardsley, Ify Nwadiwe, Isabella Roland, Rekha Shankar, Alex Song-Xia, and Jacob Wysocki each playing a variety of action movie archetypes?

The series premieres July 3rd on Dropout and YouTube, but if you want to watch the whole thing, you’ll need to subscribe to Dropout. But everyone’s going to eventually anyway. So you may as well get on it now while it’s still cool to do so.

Look for more Dimension 20 and Never Stop Blowing Up next month!
