Moving Pixels Podcast: Things to Do in Space When You're Dead

More than just a video game, Electronic Arts has given Dead Space the full transmedia treatment, shipping movies, comics, and spin off titles with the same grisly themes.

More than just a video game, Electronic Arts has given Dead Space the full transmedia treatment, shipping movies, comics, and spin off titles with the same grisly themes. In anticipation of a discussion of the release of Dead Space 2, the Moving Pixels podcast explores the universe of Dead Space as a media phenomenon.

Is this all about marketing or do these additional properties flesh out the mythos or enliven the concepts of this action/horror hybrid?

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
