Moviestorm is free, and comes with the book

Yes, we have a price for Moviestorm, the awesome, dedicated, commercially-licensed Machinima toolset that Short Fuze have been working away at for years now, and about which we have blogged effusively.

It’s going to be… Zero pounds, zero pence.

$0

No Yen.

Zilch.

Nothing.

Nada.

Zero.

Free.

Yes, it’s free to download. Totally, utterly free. Without cost.

FREEEEEEEEEEE!

Can you tell we’re a little excited about this?

You might be asking “how the hell will they survive off that?” Well, the answer, I understand, is add-on packs. MovieStorm’s add-on packs will cost a few pounds/dollars each, and will add tons of new content. And the Short Fuze guys reckon that, by making the initial program free to download, they can get a huge userbase installing subsequent packages.

It’s a brave move. I don’t know if it’ll work, although the Short Fuze management team have more experience than I do, and they reckon it will. But it’s darn fine news for Machinima creators anyway.

Oh, which brings us to point 2. Imagine if “Word for Dummies” came with a free copy of Microsoft Word.

That’s going to be the situation with Machinima for Dummies. It’ll come with a copy of Moviestorm right on the cover - everything you need to get started in Machinima, right there.

Rock and, as various people have said, roll.
