The Guild Season 6 - Episode 1 out NOW!

The Guild Season 6 is going to blow our minds. Like this.

The writing, acting and delivery of The Guild has always been consistently good, and the team has done a great job of expanding and developing the universe each season.

But this season? That whole office warehouse is amazing. Watch the behind-the-scenes video and see all the people involved, the level of detail, the graphics, drawing, models...the fully-developed and immersive nature of the space. How many Codex-hours did it take? Just astounding.

And yes, the stage is set for another season of mayhem for our Guildies as everything changes for them once again. Enjoy:

Kim Evey opens the BTS of Ep 1 video talking about the reveal of the gaming company office:
..The epitome of what The Guild Always is...a lot of hard work, a lot of different people contributing...We always want our fans to say "How did they do that? I thought they were an indie webseries! That's impossible!"..

The steadycam work is beautifully done, and I recommend you watch it fullscreen for maximum impact. They have a freaking animatronic !!!! 

It seem unreal that it was four years since I first interviewed Felicia Day, just after the deal with Microsoft/Xbox had been announced for Season 2. Felicia made the decision to keep ownership of her show and has steered it, and her career, into uncharted waters and come out firmly on top of the world. And now Season 6 is exclusive to their own 'Geek & Sundry' channel on YouTube - part of a stable of quality programming.

So much has changed in that time, but one thing is certain.

Our little webseries is all grown up.
