Within BioShock can be found one of the most iconic worlds known to gaming, the vast and hauntingly beautiful Rapture, an underwater city that was once a eutopia and is now nothing more than a place of death, inhabited by Splicers and worse.
Now, an indie film is set to go back in time before Rapture fell and aims to tell the story of Arthur and Charles, brothers experiencing Plasmids for the first time and who must learn the true cost of art and power without boundaries.
The official film description, taken from their Facebook page, reads:
“Before the underwater city of Rapture collapsed beneath itself and Splicers roamed its flooded halls, men and women thrived as they explored beyond the limits of their creative and scientific achievements. But who were they before their society crumbled around them?
Return to a corner of Rapture to uncover the story of the brothers Charles and Arthur as they come to realize the true cost of art and power without boundaries.”
As for the teaser trailer it boasts some solid writing and certainly has me interested – I’m genuinely excited for this project. The crew behind the production have a powerful passion for what they’re doing and it shows.
On a more personal note I am actually considering writing up a review for the film after its released. I’m a huge movie fan but I’ve never attempted to write about them, especially indie projects, so we’ll see how things go. Regardless, if you watch it, and you should, let me know what you though.
The film is due for release on May 13th and will be put straight up on the official Youtube channel, so make sure to go and watch it when it comes out.
In the mean time don’t forget to go visit their Facebook page and support projects like this. Give ‘em some encouragement!
Best of luck to them.
