Techland used an emotional, thrilling, and seemingly backwards roller coaster ride to gain everyone’s attention back when the first Dead Island game launched. The original teaser trailer for the title gained it much recognition, and has been regarded by many as one of the best video game trailers ever conceived. In fact, it was so good that Dead Island had possibly the toughest time any game has ever had living up to the hype of its teaser trailer.
Now, the folks at Machinima are doing some “living up” of their own, reimagining the entire teaser trailer, shot-by-shot, in live action. This couldn’t have been an easy task, so let’s have a look at Machinima’s take and then have a glance back at Techland’s original trailer for reference.
