Los Angeles, CA - October 10, 2018 - “What is World of Darkness? Why did it shake the whole RPG industry? This in-depth documentary aims to answer those questions,” wrote Eye Film.
DARKCOAST finally announces the USA digital release of legendary publishers, White Wolf’s WORLD OF DARKNESS – the only documentary of its kind that deeply explores one of gaming’s most pivotal role-playing games (RPGs) and its extensive influence on today’s modern vampire culture. Be the first to embark into White Wolf’s WORLD OF DARKNESS – the new documentary that will unveil all here: https://amzn.to/2OfKiTi.
Directed by award-winner Giles Alderson (The Dare, The Heart of the Forest), and written and produced by Kevin Lee (Gaming the Real World) from Luckyday, WORLD OF DARKNESS captures the social phenomena that has united millions of fans worldwide. Beginning with Vampire: The Masquerade, White Wolf crafted an incredible game experience that went beyond traditional tabletop RPG “quest” style gameplay and focused on creative storytelling and relationship building within an elaborate and engrossing universe. It’s a creation so powerful, that it draws millions of players not only to the tabletop experience, but to live action events, every day. The WORLD OF DARKNESS documentary not only looks at the games themselves, but the creators, and, more importantly, the fans, who bring dedication to a whole new level.
“WORLD OF DARKNESS is very intense, depicting the history ups and downs of the IP, the changes it influenced to the role-playing and gaming community, and the sad ending to a massive MMO, which would have brought you right into the World of Darkness. It is an excellent story, which has never been told before and can introduce the world to old and new fans alike,” highlighted Huffington Post.
Told through insightful interviews and personal anecdotes from prominent key players, WORLD OF DARKNESS features Mark Rein-Hagen – creator of Vampire: The Masquerade, Stewart and Steve Wieck – founders of White Wolf Publishing, Tim Bradstreet – illustrator who helped establish a modern look for the game, along with many others involved in the creation of this immersive universe. Featuring additional commentary from White Wolf’s designers and storytellers, WORLD OF DARKNESS features discussions on the history of the game, along with its effect on popular culture, film and literature.
“WORLD OF DARKNESS is a must see doc, whether you ever played the game or not. It’s a fascinating view into not only the creation of the game, but the lifestyle it catered to as well, and is fascinating from beginning to end,” wrote Horror Fuel.
