2K Games releasing documentary chronicling 'Borderlands' student art contest

  • Print

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The next release from 2K Games won't be another out-of-this-world game. It's a documentary planted firmly in reality.

The publisher of such interactive adventures as the sci-fi shoot-'em-up series "Borderlands" and the alternate history saga "BioShock" commissioned filmmaker Matthew Davis Walker and his production company Story Developing to create a feature-length documentary called "The Art of the Game."

The film chronicles budding game designers at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco who competed last year for an internship at 2K by creating short computer-generated films set in the fictional realm from the "Borderlands" games.

"The Art of the Game" is set to debut for free Thursday on Machinima's Twitch.tv channel and later on Xbox Live and YouTube.
