BELLEVUE, WA, June 15, 2012 – Matthew D. Wilson has debuted [WELCOME TO] LEVEL 7, a short film that introduces the sinister world of LEVEL 7 which will be explored through various media, including games from Privateer Press.
Written and directed by Wilson, [WELCOME TO] LEVEL 7 takes viewers on a terrifying eight-minute thrill-ride into the bowels of a secret government-run underground facility where humans work side-by-side with extraterrestrials in an effort to forward a mysterious agenda.
The short film follows John, an unsuspecting abductee, who awakens in this hostile techno-dungeon with no sense of where he is or how to get away. As John flees for his life through the perilous labyrinth of horrors, we come face-to-face with the inhuman denizens that stalk the shadows and gain an unwelcome glimpse into the dark purpose of this forsaken place.
LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE] is the first game from Privateer Press set in the world introduced by the film. One to four players take the role of fleeing test subjects who must work together—or use each other—to find their way out of the facility with their lives. LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE] releases August 2012.
