Since we are preservationists ourselves at Out of Print Archive, I thought this might be of interest to you as well.
WHAT IS OUTERLANDS?
A DOCUMENTARY "TV SERIES" ... Even though this isn't for a TV network, we're calling it a "TV series" because of the format. It'll be a minimum of six one-hour episodes. A TV "one hour" can mean anything from 42 to 60 minutes.
IN SIX EPISODES ... We could potentially do more than six if we reach some of our stretch goals!
ABOUT THE PEOPLE AND CULTURE OF VIDEOGAMES ... Videogames are art. Art is culture. Within any culture are beautiful traditions, heartfelt passions, and incredible, unbelievable stories to be told. That's where Outerlands comes in.
THAT CAN'T BE MADE ANY OTHER WAY. Traditional media outlets, broadcast networks, and even the new wave of original content from online distribution aren't going to take a "risk" on videogame content. We don't think it is a risk. We think videogames are a global cultural revolution that's sweeping in whole new ways of looking at the world, inspiring countless people into new lives, and that untold numbers are aching for this kind of content. Help us prove it!
