A short film based in the Red Dead Redemption universe, made completely with the in-game engine, is going to air on Fox this Saturday during their midnight slot. The show’s run-time clocks in at 30 minutes and will follow John Marston, Red Dead Redemption’s Protagonist. It’s supposed to feature many characters and locations from the game, so there will be some service for the fans out there.
I personally haven’t had the time to spend on Red Dead Redemption (I’ve been playing Alan Wake, don’t kill me), but I’m interested to see this show. I don’t believe there have been many cases of Machinima work hitting television, excluding the World of Warcraft South Park episode, so this is some incredibly exciting news.
What do you guys think? Are you going to watch it? Also, is this opening the possibility of us seeing more Machinima-based work on Television, or even the big screen?
