Space: 1889 Movie - The Secret of Phobos
Today I got some information for you that don't relate directly to this project, but might still be interesting for many of you.
As some might be aware, there was a Kickstarter project for a Space:1889 movie called "The Secret of Phobos" a while back (we posted an update about this here on this project when the project was live).
While this was done not directly by us, the people responsible are very good friends of us - and they did a wonderful job. By now, the movie is finished and it is available either via DVD or Bluray via our (German) shop or via streaming. The film is done in German (with some scenes in English), but it has English subtitles. Check out the trailer if you are curious. :-)
