Watch Valve's The International 2012 Documentary

Valve – little-known Washington-based developers of Richochet and Alien Swarm – have been working on another project for the past couple of years. It’s a remake of an obscure mod called “Defense Of The Ancients”. This unlikely sequel has been a surprise hit, with “computer gamers” from all over the world saying that it’s “quite good” and “maybe I’ll play just a bit more”. This rash streak of acceptance has recently culminated in a championship of some kind, mysteriously dubbed “The International 2012”.

Valve took their camcorders and video-phones along to capture the event – which took place in some kind of space center – as you can see below.

Footnote 1a: The grand prize for this tournament was ONE MILLION DOLLARS. That’s about twenty-five thousand Space Credits, or seventy-eight pieces of Fantasy Index Platinum.
