Sega "Condemned, The Prequel Story"
You may not be brave enough to hunt down a serial killer—but Sega and interactive/production company Mekanism are offering you the chance to do it from the safety of your computer. In a campaign promoting the upcoming Xbox 360 title Condemned: Criminal Origins, visitors to condemnedgame.com will find a series of interactive web-films—six episodes in total—which will roll out over the month and a half leading up to the game’s release, serving as a prequel to the game story. Written and directed by Mekanism, the films center on a gruesome murder and an FBI agent’s search for a sadistic serial killer, utilizing a combination of linear and non-linear storytelling and an interactive flash environment that lets you get in on the action by clicking on clues to move the story forward.
