Here I am again, hunched over a laptop in the middle of the night, wondering how it’s already been three years since Bioshock Infinite came out, and over four since I opened Stranger Dimensions. Tell me time travel isn’t possible.
Well, one of the things I always meant to share but never did were these cool “documentaries” that came out alongside Infinite and its expansion, Burial at Sea. They’re like those old mystery shows that were around in the 80s and 90s.
Here, have a look:
Columbia: A Modern Day Icarus?
Columbia: A Modern Day Icarus? – Part 2
Rapture: A Modern Day Atlantis?
There’s something about that old style that’s just, I don’t know, mysterious. More than today’s shows, anyway. I think it’s the music and the muffled VHS sound.
I like the attention to detail in these, too – changing the title in the last one from Truth from Legend to Fact from Myth, and the narrator from Alistar Bloom to Myles. Because the documentaries are similar, but in different universes.
Of course, it’s all fun and games until people actually witness a floating city in the sky.
