The New "Victory?" Trailer

A "Victory?" Announcement From John Vaughan - UPDATED!


Victory Logo

Ireland, two years from tomorrow, and one cop who works for the Vichy-style Ministry of Reason has a grim order: crush the only resistance to the aliens who now control most of our world. If he succeeds, then our last chance of freedom may die, but if he fails what will be the cost to humanity for victory?

Victory Poster

Well, the time has come. Victory? goes online in 14 days. Over the next two weeks, we will be building up the excitement as the first episode approaches, by delving further into the universe and world of Victory?. We'll have regular updates dropping hints towards the fall of mankind, propaganda campaigns by both the Ministry of Reason and what remains of free humanity, but we also expect you to join the fight at, by joining in via Twitter and Facebook. We give you the choice: will your words join that of the resistance or will you join the order of The Ministry. You can argue each side's view; we'll leave it up to you to decide... but the most important thing to do is to spread the word -  tell your friends, your family, and your colleagues to spread the word that Victory? is coming... Tell them to get on their computers and vote for Victory? between the 13th and the 19th of February, because if you want homegrown Irish science fiction to succeed... now is your chance!

So what are you waiting for? Join the Fight today and prepare for VICTORY!

UPDATE: It looks like the RTÉ StoryLand page has just gone live with the trailer! :D
