A great combination of animation, interactive fiction, and documentary film.
Collapsus tells a story about how the impending energy crisis affects ten young people, while international powers battle with political dissension and a fearful population during transition from Fossil fuel to alternative fuels. Set in the near future, Collapsus was initialized to raise awareness of the global issue of peak oil.
The project combines Video blogging, interactive maps, fictional newscasts, live action footage, and animation to immerse the player in the narrative. A great example of Transmedia storytelling, it requires the player to access and assess additional information and make decisions about the world’s energy production at both a national and global scale.
All information regarding Collapsus and its development is offered in the online presskit, including a walk-through by Tommy Pallotta.
