Summer Game Fest Day 2: Netflix Geeked Week 2022 Live Recap

We’re back for day 2 of Summer Game Fest! Our first reveal stream is Netflix Geeked Week: Gaming which promises to announce both games and shows being made by Netflix. We’re not sure what to expect either!

While we’re a games website, we will report on any shows Netflix announces this stream in order to provide a thorough recap of the entire event.

1899 (New show from the creators of DARK)

  • Short featurette shown before the official start time of the stream.
  • 1899 was filmed on a state-of-the-art stage in Germany where there’s what I can only describe as a huge curved screen.
  • They use the screen to project backgrounds like the ocean or the desert in real-time, circumventing the need for a green screen.
