Episode three of this season's feature - Static - is now available for download. Titled "Bob", Episode three picks up right after Alex's narrowly avoided confrontation with the Covenant Hunter. He finds himself revaluating his already dire situation. Available in WMP9, QuickTime and Flash video formats in the video section of the website.

How come the episodes in the beginning of the season are so short?
Bandwidth. It cost money to distribute the files. I wanted to make the videos a larger format so you could appreciate the scenery and effects better, but in doing so the file sizes for longer episodes are much larger and require more bandwidth to distribute. The trade off was to make the episodes shorter.

Sounds logical. But I noticed the episodes get longer near the end of the season. Was that just a coincidence?
Yes it is. As you get closer to the climax of a story you can't always break them up into set time periods.

For example the last episode of Static is 11 minutes long where as the others are 4-6 minutes.
