Story

In the last few years, several serious cyber attacks have been launched on governments, gas and oil industries, financial institutions and energy suppliers. In response, countries across the globe are forming their own cyber troops. The race is on, but it is still unclear who will be responsible for controlling these very powerful cyberspace armies of the future.

 

Netwars / out of CTRL is a fact-based 5-part interactive web series exploring the impending threat of cyberwarfare. The users personally experience the vulnerability of digital infrastructure and of modern technology. Through various scenarios, they are engaged in an intriguing game with the main character: a digital weapons dealer, portrayed by Nikolai Kinski, who is a mastermind in the dark market of digital warfare. Netwars also explains the structures of sophisticated virus attacks, combining fiction with professionally researched facts, expert knowledge, documentary footage and gaming elements.

The scale of this cross-media project is vast: the project includes an Interactive Web Doc, TV Documentary, Interactive Graphic Novel App, E-Book, Audio-Book and TV Series. Be prepared to look behind the scenes of the actual cyberwar front!
