Posted by Peter Rasmussen on September 20, 2007

Zork

The premium adventure game web site Just Adventure has posted a review of the stolen Life DVD by Ray Ivey. He talks about the potential development of machinima and about the performances from Claudia Black and Chris Jones. 

“The voice acting is simply superb.”
“The script is funny and smart, and manages to take a couple of very surprising, yet believable, twists.” 
– Ray Ivey

YouTube with revenue

Posted by Peter Rasmussen on August 16, 2007

simi

A new way of distributing movies
Perfect for machinima.

As well as being available on DVD, Stolen Life is now available streamed and via direct download.

This system is perfect for all kinds of machinima. At the moment the Si-Mi web site has many short clips available for a few cents. There is at least one other feature film I know of on this site. It’s like YouTube with revenue.

This new system allows us to offer Stolen Life for much less than the DVD.

Follow the links from the Stolen Life web site to check out this new service.
