According to GameInformer.com, "Valve's tools and technologies, based on its Source game engine, allow Acker and Brown Bag real-time rendering, and editing, simplified character animation.”

If Deep makes a deep enough impression on viewers/critics, then perhaps a transition to a video game will be much easier since the movie utilizes the Source engine to begin with.  In any case, chances are Deep will be distributed through Valve, and the game too if it comes about.
