Prominence Trailer Releases Mere Hours After Unprecedented Solar Eruption
Studio Claims No Connection; Conspiracy Theorists Unconvinced
a mere coincidence?
Long Island, New York, Dec. 7, 2010 – The trailer for Prominence, the upcoming science-fiction adventure game from Digital Media Workshop, Inc., was released today just hours after a massive solar prominence sent a filament of magnetic plasma over 400,000 miles long hurling into space.
The studio denied having any pre-existing knowledge of the eruption, but agreed that solar activity was also at an all-time high in their studios as they released the official trailer, which offers the first glimpses into the world of the Letarri and their endangered mission to colonize a remote planet.
“This trailer really captures the emotion and essence of Prominence,” said Mike Morrison, owner of Digital Media Workshop, Inc. “Our target from the beginning of this project has been to deliver a highly immersive, story-driven experience.”
When pressed for comment about the recent activity of the sun in our own solar system, Mr. Morrison added, “Solar activity can have a profound effect on electronics, radio signals, and other electromagnetically sensitive signals and equipment. We should respect the universe around us. It’s a lot bigger than we are, and far less polite.”
The trailer can be viewed on the DigitalMedia Workshop YouTube Channel
