Netwars / Out of CTRL

A fact-based 5 part interactive web series exploring the impending threat of cyberwarfare. You never know who is in control.

Within a few minutes after a nationwide blackout, life in the metropolises collapses. Famines, lootings and riots follow. It bears resemblance to a scenario of a nuclear warfare movie. Yet, you don’t need a bomb to induce such a catastrophe. Merely a computer would be sufficient.

The digital war affects every one of us, and it’s happening right now as we speak.

Netwars / out of CTRL is based on actual facts, told in different formats, and explains not only what could happen but also what is already happening even today. The fact-based perspective of this crossmedia project marks a world first: a documentary, interactive web doc, interactive graphic novel app, e-book, audio book and tv series.
