Here's a creepy bit of personal history for you: when I was nine years old I loved Monkey Island so much I wanted to fall asleep and wake up in that world. AFK, a video series seeking funding on Kickstarter, asks that question: what would happen if you did wake up inside your favourite video game and you couldn't go back.
Created by New Zealander Peter Haynes, AFK follows a group of gamers who have been transported into an MMO, as their MMO characters, minus all the skills they had in the game world. They now have to fend for their lives using skills they have in the real world. Plenty of footage has already been recorded and edited but the team is looking for extra funding to fully realise what will be a 10 part web-series divided into 7-10 minute episodes. So far it looks pretty well-made. It depends heavily on a number of tropes, but AFK looks like a fun 'what-if?' piece of film making that is completely switched on to MMO culture. I, for one, would like to see the finished product.
