The 1UP Show and CO-OP creator Area 5 is producing a new six-episode documentary-style series titled Outerlands, the video production company announced.

In order to help fund the project, Area 5 has launched a Kickstarter campaign with a $210,000 goal. Money would go to airfare and other travel expenses, the man hours necessary for video editing, and if a $110,000 stretch goal is reached, hiring freelance journalists to help produce stories. As of this post, they’ve reached $74,616 of their goal.

“Videogames are art,” reads the Kickstarter project description. “Art is culture. Within any culture are beautiful traditions, heartfelt passions, and incredible, unbelievable stories to be told. That’s where Outerlands comes in.”

Area 5’s previous works also include the I Am Street Fighter documentary and Grounded: Making The Last of Us. The team expects to wrap up Outerlands in about 18 months and release the episodes digitally and on blu-ray mid-2015. This is, of course, subject to change depending on how production shakes out.
