If you thought that SOE was running out of ways to milk the Everquest franchise for cash, think again. They just signed an agreement with the Jace Hall show to make an “epic documentary” about the history of Everquest. True to form, the documentary will be called “EverCracked”, and it will follow the history of the venerable MMORPG from the earliest design meetings to SOE's current plans for the game's future.

The film will have its first viewing on June 26th at the 2009 Fan Faire in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can check the trailer out now at “www.soepress.com”. If Las Vegas fan conventions aren't your thing, we'll probably get to see the full video either in stores or leaked all over the Internet in short order.

I'm not sure I'd qualify any documentary about an MMO “epic”, especially since this one seems to be composed primarily of interviews with game designers and players. EverCracked probably has a lot of interesting things to say about the online gaming industry and the future of massive multiplayer RPGs, but that still doesn't make it “epic”. At the end of the day it's still a documentary about a computer game where grown men pretend to be tiny elven women.

There's nothing wrong with that, but calling it “epic” is a lot like calling the 'Helvetica' documentary 'terrifying'.
