Dead Island - Amazing Video Game Trailer
on Feb 17, 2011 at 4:33:04 pm

This is a trailer that I saw yesterday for a zombie-apocalypse type video game called Dead Island. And I've watched it about 5 more times since last night, I think it's incredible. It's extremely cinematic, and better than a lot of actual film trailers.

I'm sure it's not reflective of the actual game/gameplay at all, but it's a great, well designed trailer. I've never felt such emotion in anything zombie related before!


***It is extremely violent and gory, though. If you consider blood flying everywhere to be NSFW, then it's NSFW.

Some pretty convincing motion capture... that gets better all the time.

Nice variation on the linear narrative theme, changing it up a little. For the most likely audience/customer base, getting the gore and action happening right away is important in grabbing their attention. Then running ti backwards to fill in some story satisfies the curiosity of the more casual viewer.

Maybe it kind of ruins it, I'm not sure, but G4 cut together a chronological (and sped up to normal speed) version of the Dead Island trailer. I guess it's an interesting, yet less visually stimulating, different perspective of something good.

Also amazing was probably the cost to get to use all those film clips. I wonder what THAT cost?
