Well, as posted before by Nems1s, the map called The Complex was being made. well, now, after who knows how long, some more information is given, but its not about the release date of the map! Nope! Its about the SHOW thats going to be made called ...well, The Complex!
So what is Machinima?
Machinima is much like puppetry, but rather than controlling puppets, actors control virtual characters inside a 3d world. Machinima involves using video game technology to create movies and performances.
How does it all come together?
From the audience you will see 5 individuals (4 actors, and one virtual camera man) sitting on stage, each at a computer. The audience sees the virtual world from the perspective of the camera man, who's viewpoint is projected onto a large screen over the stage.
When can I see it?
The AV Club is hard at work putting this show (and a few others) together. Because of the complex technical nature of this show, a great deal of custom models, textures, sets, and software need to be created. So keep checking this site, and feel free to post your questions, comments, and suggestions on The AV Club Machinima forum.
What will it look like?
The show world is created and rendered using the new "Source" engine by Valve Software. Halflife 2 and Counter Strike:Source are a couple good examples of games that use the "Source" engine. Screenshots of the apartment building map that will be used as the set for "The Complex" can be found in our Gallery.
