How many other types of media do you want Defiance to come in?

I for one hope we get EVERYTHING! Books, action figures, toys, audio novels, clothing (some already but I mean more), phone covers, genetically engineered hellbugs etc.

A t-shirt with a hellbug popping out of your chest would be pretty cool. Maybe a tad graphic but eh.

Well the term 'transmedia' doesn't relate to EVERYTHING that a franchise touches. Tshirts and toys and the like are just marketing. as far as the transmedia component you have to look at what parts are interacting with each other and where the story is being told. Clearly we have the game and tv show that will evolve over time, and we now have the motion comic giving us a nice prelude to both of those. Now whether that continues after the launch is up to the company, but I think we could certainly see a three fold platform with some digital comics. Not so sure about full novels at this point..

If we the players don't do something quickly enough I want to see tangible results. Like the sickness I've seen mentioned. Or if there is a battle I want them to meaningfully lose or bring about a crushing defeat on the enemy. To see dynamic changes in the world around the characters because what we did/didn't do.

I'd probably read the book if I really like the game and the show of course, nothing too heavy or long though. TW probably watch how it goes and maybe for season 2.

I just got my first piece of Defiance swag; One of those "badge holder" things that go around your neck. My local Gamestop gave me one (since I tend to spend a buncha money there and pre-orders. Heck, I got the Defiance CE on order from there)!

A convention where you take place in a Defiance themed paint ball game. Nothing like translating media into the live action participatory format. :P

My store got a couple polo shirts with Defiance printed on the sleeve and the release date. No graphics or anything but still pretty awesome.

A Defiance Hellbug Designed Controller would be cool !

I wouldn't mind a smart phone app that serves as a companion to the game. Maybe it can give you updates on current events in the game world, let you change your loadout while you're away, and show story links between the tv series and the game. I also would buy clothing based on the game and show costumes.

A smartphone app would be cool, maybe they could also do the authenticator ( if one is made for the game) through a phone app as well.

That would be pretty sweet. Would love to see a paintball field with a post apocalyptic theme.

With the front claws being the grip. Teeth shaped sticks!! And then the directional pad and buttons could just be chitinous growths! <,<

I feel that the transmedia interaction is a cool idea. Personaly I would like to watch the show and be able to play out the TV fights in game on thier locations.

Well, I'd like them to be able to make everything possible, and have something totally immersive. It'd be cool if they could integrate something into the real world through smart phones (maybe an app that will allow them to place things in the real-world to 'find' or something)

One thing I would like to see is a "Summery" novel for each season, a book that pulls from both the view of the player and the main actors and is the world view, the fact of the matter that is not biased to one side or the other, giving both players and TV fans to have a recap and be able to watch the tides and currents of the show, the plot twists and turns from a new preceptive.
