Fan made shorts continue Machinima's push into streaming original programming based on games

Machinima has launched a series of short films based on videogame franchises “Minecraft,” “Fallout,” “Half-Life” and “League of Legends.”

First short, “Fallout Nuka Break – Red Star” bowed today on the site, which has scored in the past as the exclusive platform for live action series based on “Halo” and “Mortal Kombat.”

The “Fallout Nuka Break” short is the latest installment of the fan-made series. Its 10 existing live action shorts have been viewed more than 6 million time, and series is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to back its second season. Effort has already raised over $130,000.

The new “Red Star” episode, produced by Wayside Creations and starring Vic Mignogna, Ed O’Ross and Toni Wynne, takes place  between the time period of the original fan film and season one of “Fallout Nuka Break.
