It’s not difficult to imagine the intense first-person action of an FPS game like Battlefield translating into film – after all, action games like Battlefield have drawn lots of inspiration from movies. But a more abstract strategy game like Stellaris is a bit different – which makes Player One Stories’ upcoming short film about the grand strategy game an exciting, if slightly mystifying, prospect.
Gage Allen has worked for years as a professional videogame trailer producer, working on promotional videos for games like Starpoint Gemini, Conarium, Baldur’s Gate 3, The Long Dark, as well as Stellaris itself. In 2019, he headed up the creation of This Is Battlefield – a short film and love letter to the series shot in Battlefield V’s spectacular multiplayer. Now, he’s finalising work on Stellaris: Ebb and Flow, another short film borne out of pure fan enthusiasm for the game.
Allen says he wants “to try and show what makes Stellaris so special to me, and potentially why it’s special to other people” with Ebb and Flow, which Player One Trailers says will premiere in June. “I really like creating emotions with my films, and like This Is Battlefield, tailoring those emotions using the game as a canvas. We’ll see if it works.”
