Second Skin, by Purewest Films (www.secondskinfilm.com) is new, movie/documentary about online games and MMORPGs.

What’s interesting here is they take 7 gamers whose lives changed forever because of virtual worlds. The movie tackles identity, community, economy, love, addiction and many other facets of this growing worldwide “boom”. The movie states that 50 million people play MMORPGs - your friend, relative, officemate, classmate or even your mom could be a gamer.

Their official movie site details the film more: “Second Skin takes an intimate look at computer gamers whose lives have been transformed by the emerging genre of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs). World of Warcraft, Second Life, and Everquest allow millions of users to simultaneously interact in virtual spaces. Second Skin introduces us to couples who have fallen in love without meeting, disabled players who have found new purpose, addicts, Chinese gold-farming sweatshop workers, wealthy online entrepreneurs and legendary guild leaders - all living in a world that doesn’t quite exist.”
