‘A Tale of Internet Spaceships’ is a gorgeous, engrossing documentary exploring the world and the people of ‘EVE Online’, a game in which the players really do forge the universe they exist in, almost independent of the original game studio CCP Games.
EVE Online is a complex game. I’ve never played it myself, but the fact that battles within the EVE game-world can make international news is a testament to a very interesting experiment in game design. This documentary is a must-see for all gamers, but especially those who have never really experienced EVE Online before (like me!).
The documentary was crowd-funded through Indiegogo, and was shot at FanFest 2013 in Reykjavik, Iceland. My track ‘Supernova’ features over the title credits – used pretty damn well in my opinion :).
