In Romania, teens slave away in a "virtual sweatshop" racking up points for Westerners who are too busy to play their own games. And somewhere in a small town 100 miles from the Arctic Circle, the largest gathering of online gamers in the world is getting underway" [1].

GAMER REVOLUTION explores how computer games are not only a new medium for the 21st century, they are a massive form of change in our world", says Rachel Low, President, Red Apple Entertainment. “The idea of living inside a computer-generated universe is happening right now. The line between the real world and the virtual world is disappearing. Millions of people feel that they have a life inside these games" [2].
