Transmedia: Syfy “Defiance” Crossing Over to Gaming

Syfy’s new show Defiance aims to combine a traditional TV show with an online gaming experience. One part science fiction series, one part story about the melting pot of a burgeoning society, Defiance features seven alien species looking for asylum after a huge disaster.

The twist? The television show takes place in the town of Defiance (the modern-day St. Louis) — while Defiance’s massively multi-player online shooter takes place two thousand miles away in San Francisco. Players will go on missions — and your choices in the MMO can wind up affecting the outcome of the TV show.

This attention to detail and desire to create a livable world could be the difference between success and failure for Defiance’s transmedia hopes.
