November 1, 2013 — In 2011, Techland captivated the video game world when it released what is widely considered the greatest video game trailer of all-time for the relatively unknown at the time video game Dead Island. The trailer was viewed over 2.5 million times in the first five days and received universal praise from gaming and mainstream media outlets.

An All-new video game short, which comprises a shot–for-shot, live action adaptation of the beloved trailer, is now live on Machinima.  Featuring the same iconic music, the production team matched the emotion and action of the original down to the smallest detail.
