White Wolf Publishing released its first two World of Darkness video games in more than a decade this week. Vampire the Masquerade: We Eat Blood and Mage the Ascension: Refuge won’t scratch that Bloodlines itch, but as interactive fiction goes they’re very cool.
23.2 lightyears from Earth sits the Scorpius Constellation, where scientists are working on an artificial biosphere that can harbor human life. And perhaps some other forms of life, too.
The short film Refuge is set year in the year 2020 when a cyberwar is brewing between the United States and Iran. Sonia, a young journalist and refugee from Iran, is in danger of being deported, when a new research project offers her an opportunity to stay, but at great personal cost.
