Two years since Rockstar video games co-founder Dan Houser filed a UK trademark for “Absurd Ventures in Video games”, the corporate has launched an internet site with the tagline “Storytelling. Philanthropy. Ultraviolence.” There’s an accompanying promotional reel that is presently promoting vibes rather than merchandise, with a promise to “polute minds and harm souls in each medium conceivable. 

Absurd Ventures says its dedicated to “constructing narrative worlds, creating characters, and writing tales for a various number of genres, with out regard to medium, to be produced for live-action and animation; video video games and different interactive content material; books, graphic novels, and scripted podcasts.”

Clicking round on the positioning will carry up an eye fixed that follows your mouse cursor, whereas pc code within the background decodes into ominous messages, however there isn’t any concrete statements about upcoming tasks or initiatives.

It has been two years of radio silence because the Absurd Ventures trademark was first registered in tandem with an LLC. Who is aware of, possibly Absurd Ventures is continuous within the custom of Rockstar’s tight lipped strategy to imminent releases, however all this cryptic nonsense will hopefully result in one thing extra substantial than a bizarre music video. 

Dan Houser’s contributions to Rockstar go effectively past being only a founder—he is credited as a author and producer on a few of Rockstar’s most prestigious releases like Purple Lifeless Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 4. As of now, there’s nothing to go on past the aforementioned sizzle reel and hacker eyeball, however the cynical vitality feels very a lot in line with Rockstar’s edgy vibe. It will be fascinating to see what these “narrative worlds” wind up being, particularly with such an enormous identify behind them.
